Need to apply for a work permit? Got a renewal appointment coming up?  Confused about how to start freelancing?  Not sure how income tax and VAT works? Expath can help!

Join our Office Hours for 1-on-1 coaching on expat bureaucracy, with a special focus on visas & work permits and freelancing administration.

Bring us your questions, forms & documents and we’ll help you understand your options and make a concrete plan.  (Note: We can provide general information about work permits, freelance taxes and invoicing and insurance, but we may need to refer you on to a lawyer, tax or insurance professional if you need serious legal advice.)

We can help with other bureaucratic topics like address registration, kita or school enrolment, etc. Not sure if we can cover your questions? Just email us the details of your situation at coaching@expath.de, and we’ll let you know!
