As someone possibly about to jump into the deep end and go freelance, I\'d love to hear from people how they found it setting up. I\'ve had various chats with people about tax, VAT, social security etc. so am relatively well-versed there but would appreciate some personal experiences (particularly on the importance of networking, working alone vs BĂźrogemeinschaft, etc).



Thanks

Hi! I also work freelance in Germany. The BDÜ has an excellent book on going freelance - contact them for a copy. And find a \"Steuerberater\" before you do anything - they can give you loads of good advice!
