Tax on foreign income

65 posts in this topic

Where does foreign income need to be declared if it is a salary payment, or a directors' fee?

(not capital earning - dividend / interest etc., which is already well covered by  @PandaMunich  in this thread)

 

That is, when I file my taxes as employee. I don't suppose there needs to be a separate filing for self-employed/freelancing?

HI,

I relocated to Germany from nonEU/EEA country and still have there self-employment. During few months, physically being in Germany, I did some job for my previous employer by existed contract. To declare this income in Germany (since it was paid on my bank account outside of Germany)  I should probably fill the steuerkleidung and maybe some Anlage (probably Anlage N-AUS), but the main question is - how I can actually pay the taxes here? how much? The income was about 6000$ during few months.  Another question is about double taxation, but to return it, probably it should be paid first :)

Dear Experts,

I have a few questions for 2017:

1. Could you please tell me what currency conversion rate can be used for converting the INR interest income into EUR for filing returns for 2017? Is there some guidance on taking the rate of a particular date in 2017 or I can just take an average value between 1st of Jan 2017 and 31 Dec 2017 or freely any rate that existed in 2017? 

2. How to take care of the amounts from different financial years between India and Germany? The FY 2017 in India is from Apr 2017 to Mar 2018 and in Germany it is the same as calendar year 2017. How should I pull out numbers from FY 2016 and FY 2017 for the taxes (interest amounts I can look in the bank statements for calendar year 2017).

3. Is an excel sheet enough to explain the calculations (I have house rent income and interest income from India that I need to explain).

4. What supporting documents do I need to submit while filing the returns in Germany - both for domestic as well as foreign income? e.g. do I need to submit any receipts/the tax statement from employer/insurance documents for domestic and bank statements for India? Or these documents are needed only when asked for by the Finanzamt.

 

Thanks!

Hi, 
I have read through this post and haven't found an answer to my question. Further the links take me to the forum screen and not to the posts (maybe they no longer exist due to being so old, not sure)

I am a South African with a property. I do not make a profit on this property, I make a small loss. (About 17€ loss each month)
 

This is the only thing I have in South Africa. Everything else is German.

I did have a South African income in the first 4 months of 2018, but as I understand it, South Africa doesn't get double taxed.

 

Please advise if I need to do a tax return.

Will be looking for a lawyer for help, just wanted some advise in the meanwhile.

 

Marilee.
