The aim of all contractors is basically the same: to keep your independence, retain more of your income and keep on the taxman’s good side. The only thing you all want to cut down on is time consuming administration.

Our partners have all the solutions for you and we can give you a quick, free assessment of your circumstances to recommend a range of options. Recent investigations undertaken by the German Tax Authorities have meant that ensuring compliance with the regulations is now even more important when selecting your tax structure for contracting in Germany.

Of primary concern when trying to ensure you receive the highest net return on your gross billing in Germany is not just minimising your taxable income but also alleviating some of the massive social security payments. These payments actually make up a higher proportion of your surrendered income than does taxation.

Our partner companies offer a variety of solutions and the one that suits you will depend on a number of factors: whether you will be a German tax resident (over 183 days of this tax year), whether you are an EU citizen, whether you would be entitled to a Cost of Living Allowance, if/how many dependents you have, whether your billing would be through a recruitment agency or direct to client, how long you have lived in Germany, your marital status, your age and many more.
