    can you be self employed or does the job require you to work through a leasing license.

    It makes a big difference

    They want me to work under a brolly type arrangement, I think (haven't seen the contract yet). I definitely know they're not interested in working with my Ltd Co.

    Sorry Cojak, that doesn't answer the question I'm afraid.

    If the client requires the Management Co to hold a Labour leasing license then you have less choice than if they don't. But even if they don't require the license you will still find it advantageous to work through a brolly, but you will be set up as a self employed person.

    If you need a license the choice that I know of is JSA or ITECS. But if you don't need the license then someone like Albany systems is probably a better choice.

    Default Why?

    Any idea why they are reluctant to contract your UK Ltd. I've never had any problems with my German clients.

    Default Re: Why?

    Working through your Ltd for any longer than 6 months in Germany is a no no, because after that time you would have to register it, and that is complicated and inefficient taxwise, as you´re liable for Gewerbesteuer (industrial tax).

    I presume the reason they´re a bit sensitive is that if your management company screws up (eg VAT), they could also get screwed, as the client also carries liability. There have been problems in the past of employers of English employees coughing up huge sums of back tax.

    So I think you would be best accepting it. The benefit is as a UK employee is you can stay on the NHS through E101, though this is significantly more expensive than German private health insurance.

    The most efficient way to operate in Germany is as a freelancer with no form of Ltd, and get some private health insurance. To work as a freelancer is quite simple. You send a letter to the Finanzamt saying you´re working as a freelancer, bill the company who pay direct to you, fill in a VAT form every month and fill in a tax return at the end of the year. A Steuerberater (German Accountant) will do all this for you of course.

    'Tis the duration. In my case it tends to be mainly UK based and only odd trips to Germany for a week here and there.

    Wink Lets hope ITECS goes out of business soon!

    Keep away from ITECS. They are absolutely appalling.

    They charge 350 euros per month and the quality of the service is disgusting.

    Really. Can not stress. Keep away from ITECS.
