  1. Freiberufler and Tax ID

    Thanks. Yep, I did the very same, but could not find a straight answer to my questions, so I opened a new thread. Yes, I will be working solely as a freelancer, so there is no need for me to inform my employer (because i will not have one). OK, so there is no harm in asking for a Steuernummer while still working my notice because I will anyway have to state the starting day, correct?    Thanks
  2. Freiberufler and Tax ID

    Hi, I have been living in Berlin for the past 2 years always holding a permanent position at a company (therefore I have a steuerliche Identifikationsnummer). I am going to register as a freelancer and start working as such from August. I have the following questions:    - Can I register as a Freelancer and request a Tax ID while I am still employed? Can I clearly set a start date for my freelancer work?  - Is my current "employee" Tax ID different from a Freelancer one? Can I just use the same?    Thank you
  3. Hi there, thank your reply. I kinda got to the same conclusion. It seems to me that I can just register as a Freelancer and get a TAX ID. I currently have an employee TAX ID, do you have any id whether I can request a Freelancer TAX ID for a future date (1st August) while I am still working my notice? I am struggling to find any info on that. I am also thinking to use Sorted, I wanted if you have a good experience with it or you know anybody who used it? Thank you, Regards,  
  4. I am currently living in Berlin (EU citizen) and so far I have always been a permanent employee (I am a software engineer). I have just secured a fully remote job with a EU company and because they do not have a legal entity in Germany, I will need to be self-employed. This is meant to be for a limited period of time (around 3 months) as I will then move back to my home country (Italy -  then there I will need to work out what to do) I certainly would like to avoid to incur in Scheinselbstständigkeit, but I have read that a Freiberufler / Freelancer can only work up to 80% of their time for one employer. I believe that such percentage only apply on yearly salary, is that correct? Here is my question. What is the best and of course legal way I can work as a self employed for a sole customer for such a short period of time? Would this be Gewerbetreibender / Self-Employed or Freiberufler / Freelancer? Do I need to set my limited company? What are the cost differences? More importantly, I would like to go for an option that does not break the bank for no reason. This is an initial advice then I am planning to consult with a tax advisor.  Thank you
