For many foreigners, the paperwork required to work and live in Germany is surprising. While there are several resources for starting your own business, you must first know how to present your business plan and where to look for help.
Before earning money in Germany, everyone has to register at the tax office (Finanzamt) and get a tax number. Additionally, all trade practitioners must be registered at the trades office (Gewerbeamt) and have to meet German requirements for practicing their craft.
