Once you’ve got the work permit to start running your business in Germany, the next step is applying for a freelance tax number to write on your invoices. You probably already received a “Steuer-Identifikationsnummer” in the mail. Just file it away – it’s not suitable for your invoices.
In this coaching, I take you through the application form step by step. It usually takes about 45-60 minutes to get through. You give the Finanzamt important information about how you wish to set up your business and what you expect to turn over on this form. They use this information to manage your tax affairs in the future.
If required and if there’s time, we would also be happy to go through the process of getting a Gewerbeschein with you online and explaining the intricacies of having one.
This coaching is suitable for sole trader freelancers only. I give out lots of useful general information but not tax advice. If you need help making decisions on how to set up your business in Germany for tax purposes, I recommend getting advice from a tax advisor.
