Hello

I currently work as a freelancer in Germany but am thinking of moving to Austria in the new year. Can anyone tell me whether working as a freelancer in Austria is any different to working as a freelancer in Germany and what essentially is involved in terms of registration, etc.?

Many thanks

John

Hi John,

I recently started as freelance in Salzburg and found it
surprisingly easy to get started. You have to register at
the chamber of commerce (Wirtschaftskammer)for the open trade of
Übersetzungsbüro and then tell the police authorities. After
this you get your tax and VAT number from your local Finanzamt and get started.
Feel free to contact me at schauf@aon.at

Best regards - Siggy

Any Chinese freelancer translators in Germany or Austria? Sep 27, 2004

I work China as a freelancer translator. I wonder how the translation market in Germany and Austria is like. Thank you.
