Started by berlingoodman , 23 May Posted 23 May I have long ago received my tax number, but not this business license. I'm fine with doing it but am wondering if this will change my tax situation dramatically in other words, will I have to pay more. I am a self-employed artist at the moment. I did see posts on about this in the forum, but they were a bit outdated so I was wondering if someone could get me up to speed. If it goes above that you will have to pay an extra tax called Gewerbesteuer of Posted 24 May Posted 26 May Also for some reason they wouldn't accept my address??
Posted 16 Aug I also have some queries regarding gerwerbeschein. I have a full time job and my tax class is 3 with one baby 1. She got a Gewerbschein so that she can advertise her business to get customers.
Now the question is what will be equation at the end of year. Will I be taxed in tax class 3 or 1? What's better to have a gewerbeschein or not. That magical You don't need to charge VAT and pay it to the Finanzamt under that turnover. Posted 17 Aug Can it be calculated online? Can i find some help to fill them here? The turnaround will not be taxed at all, the profit will be taxed. It will be taxed the same way, but since it's additional to your salary, you'll possibly pay a higher tax rate the german tax tariffs are progressive.
I'm sorry, I'm near Stuttgart. But the Munich chamber has a nationwide search function on it's webpage, you can include foreign language capabilities in the search. Posted 3 Jul Relatively easy to do with investment income, not so sure anout business income. Posted 6 Jul Much worse, claiming the profits to avoid health insurance costs for the partner would be a criminal offense, social security fraud.
Posted 11 Dec I registered as freelancer Freie Berufe Kleinunternehmer for photography job and earned couple of hundred euros this year. Right now I realize that my services cannot be a freelance job as it is commercial photography. Am I too late to get a Gewerbeschein, so that I can do my tax declaration accordingly in ? Should I have been registered before my first invoice date? If you only earned a couple 2? It's not too late but it might be i not to your best economic advantge to do so ii not essential at this time.
Not on a ratio but they do serve to reduce your overall tax liability. Theoretically, yes, but it is possible to do so in exceptional cases and register retroactively. You could but, as mentioned, that may prove to be far more expensive than paying a penalty for a single minor infringement. I am also planning to open an online print shop and if I'm correct, even if you're an artist an online shop is accepted as Commerce according to law.
I did the job in and invoiced as well. Unfortunately I cannot change the invoice. It was a one-time job. Still they are Freiberufler.
When the photos are used for advertisement purposes, then apparently it is not an art anymore but a trade. Sorry if I didn't put it clearly. The distinction of what is art and what is not by law is also new to me. Photojournalism ex: commissioned by newspapers etc. Even if the pictures are used for advertising purposes. I wouldn't worry about it and wake sleeping dogs. Submit your tax return just like last year, as a Freiberufler.
I read it on IHK website. If you can argue that your photographs are more than just product shots, namely that they are compositions with artistic aspirations, the activity is freelance. But honestly: Nobody is interested in the question of whether this is commercial or artistic - with an income of only a few hundred euros! Do the tax return like you did last year. And if it makes you feel better, get an additional Gewerbeschein next year.
