  • Help with opening of a German bank account

We have been providing our services to American employers (with companies domiciled in Germany or in the USA) since 2000. During this time we have learned how important it is that Department of Defense contractors find out how the German tax system and social insurance system work.

Individuals that hold DoD ID cards and want to work in Germany need to be informed about German business, tax and social security regulations.

  • Self-employment requirements regarding German business registration, tax payments and other matters
  • Benefits available to those with SoFA status and working as an "employee" of a German company (Social security, retirement contribution refunds, child allowance (Kindergeld), etc.)
  • German government tax liability and filing requirements for individuals in cooperation with RFP Tax Consulting GmbH

Full compliance with German laws and regulations is vital. Non-compliance can result in heavy fines and other serious consequences.
