  1. Hi all,   I'm a freelance designer and working in Germany. I'd like to join the NFT(A non-fungible token) market to sell my artwork in the future. But there are some questions about Ether coin and tax that I don't know how it works.   If I sell my artwork and earn some Ether coins, how to declare it as my freelance income? Should I write the invoice and how to do it if it's through the NFT market?   If someone has this experience, thank you!!
  2. I am a freelancer (translator) and filling out the above form on Elster. I had four "mistakes" when I reached the end and checked everything, managed to solve three...   But I cannot get my head around the final "conflict". I think it might be linked to whether I should tick the following boxes or not:   Kleinunternehmer-Regelung  Hilfe zum Begriff anzeigen Zeile 134 Der auf das Kalenderjahr hochgerechnete Gesamtumsatz wird die Grenze des § 19 Absatz 1 UStG voraussichtlich nicht überschreiten. Es wird die Kleinunternehmer-Regelung in Anspruch genommen. In Rechnungen wird keine Umsatzsteuer gesondert ausgewiesen und es kann kein Vorsteuerabzug geltend gemacht werden. Hinweis: Angaben zur Soll-/Istversteuerung der Entgelte sind nicht erforderlich; Umsatzsteuer-Voranmeldungen sind grundsätzlich nicht zu übermitteln. Zeile 135 Der auf das Kalenderjahr hochgerechnete Gesamtumsatz wird die Grenze des § 19 Absatz 1 UStG voraussichtlich nicht überschreiten. Es wird auf die Anwendung der Kleinunternehmer-Regelung verzichtet. Die Besteuerung erfolgt nach den allgemeinen Vorschriften des Umsatzsteuergesetzes für mindestens fünf Kalenderjahre (§ 19 Absatz 2 UStG); Umsatzsteuer-Voranmeldungen sind monatlich in elektronischer Form authentifiziert zu übermitteln. However, when I try ticking these boxes, I get:   Die Felder 'Der auf das Kalenderjahr hochgerechnete Gesamtumsatz wird die Grenze des § 19 Absatz 1 UStG voraussichtlich nicht überschreiten. Es wird die Kleinunternehmer-Regelung in Anspruch genommen. In Rechnungen wird keine Umsatzsteuer gesondert ausgewiesen und es kann kein Vorsteuerabzug geltend gemacht werden. Hinweis: Angaben zur Soll-/Istversteuerung der Entgelte sind nicht erforderlich; Umsatzsteuer-Voranmeldungen sind grundsätzlich nicht zu übermitteln.' und 'Der auf das Kalenderjahr hochgerechnete Gesamtumsatz wird die Grenze des § 19 Absatz 1 UStG voraussichtlich nicht überschreiten. Es wird auf die Anwendung der Kleinunternehmer-Regelung verzichtet. Die Besteuerung erfolgt nach den allgemeinen Vorschriften des Umsatzsteuergesetzes für mindestens fünf Kalenderjahre (§ 19 Absatz 2 UStG); Umsatzsteuer-Voranmeldungen sind monatlich in elektronischer Form authentifiziert zu übermitteln.' wurden gemeinsam angegeben. Dies ist unzulässig.   The thing is, I hate filling out tax forms (HMRC are the same) when you are just a freelancer, but you are "pretending" to be a business. So I am wary of ticking them, even though the system is suggesting this is where the solution might lie.   I should add that this will not be the end of it and, even if someone can provide authoritative advice on the above question, this will probably inevitably lead to a second question.   For reference purposes, I just do the occasional translation or two to earn a few thousand euros. Otherwise, I am living off savings (but obviously I still need to fill this out).    
  3. Freelance for Germany from abroad

    Been in Germany for almost 4 years, graduated from uni here last year, got me a tax number, did a bit of freelance work last year (Kleinunternehmer), paid my taxes, and all went well.   A while ago I decided to leave and move back home (and I will be in about a month), but recently the company I did freelance work for last year has asked me if I’m interested in doing it again for a short time, while abroad. I’m considering doing it, and perhaps maybe find other projects from German companies and make it a full-time thing. 1. So, it’s possible freelancing for German companies without having to be a resident here? Will I need some kind of German freelancer-visa for this?   2. Where I’m moving to there’s no taxes, it’s 100% tax-free. From what I’ve read online, you need to pay taxes in the country where you are registered as a resident, so what happens in my case where we have no taxes? Do I pay them in Germany instead? Or nothing at all? and do I need to say anything to the Finanzamt?    3. For someone with very little experience, will it be too hard to get freelance contracts (not as company employee), if I’m not in the country all the time?   4. Knowing that money is not a concern, would it be possible to actually work this out in a way where I can freelance for German companies while spending about half my time in Germany and half back home? Because again, I’m not trying to make consistent big bucks from freelancing, my main goal is to slowly gain more work experience working remotely on a project basis, while being able to fly back and forth between here and there.     
  4. Hi all - I didn't (couldn't) find a similar thread so hopefully I'm not duplicating anything here. I've been in DE on freelancer visas since 2015 and my current visa expires in June 2021. I decided to take 2020 off for a variety of reasons and will have 0€ reported income for the tax year (I lived off of personal savings, etc) and ideally would continue my hiatus for the rest of 2021 as well. I am living off personal savings and not applying for any state/social benefits.  I was initially thinking I'd go back to the US when my current visa expires, but there's also a possibility I'd like to stay.   My question is: is there any way to extend my visa (or to obtain any other visa/permission) to stay in Germany, given that I'm not actively working?  Is this a scenario that is accepted/accounted for in the DE visa scheme? Or are there any "corona" exceptions being given in this case?   
  5. Hi All, I am an non-EU citizen living in Berlin on self-employment permit. I have been living in Germany for 9 years (initially 3 years to study and then freelancing). Now, I finally thought about applying for Daueraufenthalt-EU, since it will give me more flexibility. However, I have some questions: 1) Pension contributions: a) I don't have to pay into public pension, and for PR it requires pension insurance. I have assets < 194,631 EUR as mentioned on website. I am 29 years old, I do have assets which can be projected (if I keep acquiring them) to be > 194,631 EUR  when I reach 67 year of age. Do they require me to have assets currently of this value or a realistic future projection will also work?   2) Is Daueraufenthalt-EU more difficult to get compared to niederlassung: The main condition I see different in niederlassungerlaubnis is mainly it can be issued if someone has lived less than 5 years on work-permit etc. other than that most conditions seems to be same. Do you have any idea, other than time of stay, is there any other condition which makes it difficult to get Daueraufenthalt-EU compared to niederlassung.   Thank you very much for the help  and looking forward to the answers
