Registering for ELSTER before arrival in Germany

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. I'm just trying to get my head around the information about filing taxes in Germany. I will summarise my situation as succinctly as possible:


1) I previously worked in Germany so I still have a steuer ID, apartment, and insurance

2) I left germany this year and managed to get stuck in india indefinitely because of corona 

3) I started freelancing this year

4) I must apply for a freiberufler permit when I arrive and so I have prepared a business plan and finance plan


My question is, is it wise to register at ELSTER as a freelancer now, while in India, just so that I'm ahead of the game? 


Thank you for your help!
