Freelancing, Visa, Tax Number, Health Insurance , Pension and more…
Freelancing in Germany and especially in Leipzig might seem daunting. Your unique personal circumstances and the complexities of the German law will require careful consideration and are definitely beyond the scope of this brief note.
Studying Expat Blogs and Relocation Websites might be a good place to start gathering information about the process but from our experience, consulting a lawyer or tax advisor can be very helpful and not as expensive as you might think.
All we can say is that it does sometimes all come together.
