  1. Freelancer vs. self-employed

    Until today I always thought that a freelancer or a self employed person were one and the same. However, it appears, from reading through various topics that a self employed person pays more tax than a freelancer. Why?   Now I don't need a lecture on search or to be told the subject has been widley covered elsewhere or to be advised to employ the services of a tax advisor. I just want to know the difference between the two terms and why a freelancer should get preferiental tax treatment.   Hopefully the answers provided will be useful to those considering setting up on their own in Germany.   Thank you all in advance.
