How to Become a Freelancer in Berlin | A Workshop with Expath

I want to work as a freelancer… now what!?

What taxes do I need to worry about? How do I invoice clients? 'Must' I get German health insurance? What’s the difference between freelancing, self-employed and being classified as a ‘trade’ (Gewerbe)? What can I do when clients don’t pay? What are the laws on how I market myself/my company?

Join our Freelancing in Berlin workshop to learn:

  • What kind of health insurance you need
  • What other insurances are a good idea (liability/accident/legal, etc.)
  • How to get a tax number and invoice clients
  • How income taxes work
  • What is VAT and whether you need to charge it
  • The difference between freelancing, self-employed and being a Gewerbe
  • The special German laws regarding marketing, advertising, your website, etc.

You’ll come away with lots of practical information, useful phone numbers and addresses, and the German terms for the offices, officials, and documents you’ll need to deal with as a freelancer for just 42, € (incl. MwSt)
