You have founded or would like to establish? You would like to pursue a freelance activity?
The tax registration is one of the first steps on the way to your independence/establishment and concerns most founders.
Tradespeople must register their activities with the relevant trade and public order office in their region. Whoever is a trader decides according to the following criteria:
- You are personally independent, independent and not subject to any instructions.
- You carry out your work sustainably - regularly
- Your activity is aimed at making a profit.
Depending on the legal form, your activity is considered by law to be a trade, especially in the case of a limited liability company (GmbH). Freelancers are not required to register.
After successful registration, the responsible trade and public order office will usually inform the tax office, which will send you the questionnaire for tax registration. This questionnaire must be completed and returned to the tax office within one month.
The Federal Ministry of Finance makes the documents for tax registration available to you for online retrieval.
