Has anyone any experience of working in the UAE?

42 posts in this topic

I had an answer of sorts from a Steuerberater - if I do not leave the apartment and abmeldung, the entire Dubai salary (minus 5% witholding) would be taxable in Germany.

 

I do not know if that means taxable in the same way that salaried income is, or if there are different tax rules that apply to it.

If you declare the UAE income to the German tax authorities, then yes it would be considered taxable. Whether you have a flat in Germany is not relevant. It would be the Abmeldung that means you're no longer liable to pay any tax here. 

You can be 'angemledet' still without an actual property (rented/owned/other).
