Im looking into the possibility of moving to Germany and wanted to find some clarification on the taxation rules.

Im currently working ad hoc offshore as a LTD company but have the option to go PAYE if it makes thing easier, and would plan to split my living between here and Germany and keep working offshore. However, if after a certain number of days out of the country it changes my taxation status I might consider staying over there for longer.

Im sifting through the reams of info on the net but looking to maybe hear from someone whos been in the same situation.

tax.... one big bloody grey area!

Would you paid in the UK?

Its different from my tax situation, but from memory you may have to spend 183+ days of year (1/2 year) constantly out of UK.

Unless you qualify for SED (seafarers deduction) then i think it would be the 90 day rule and go ex pat (if it is still 90 days, they change the goal posts alot!).

I would be able to have a german bank account if required and might be more than 90 days abroad. I wouldnt qualify for seafarers as all my work is either fixed platforms or smi subs. If Im outside more than 90 days what does that incur. Ive seen the dual taxiation thing on the hmrc website and it seems to infer that you have to declare everything to both countries and they will do thier best to prevent you from getting taxed twice, but seems pretty vague if Im honest.

it works (only getting taxed once)... but takes a while to sort.

I got a rebate of tax paid in UK for a period of months where I paid Noggie tax. Of course there was a period where I was double taxed.

Yeah its seeming like for simplicities sake I should just keep myself down as living in the uk untill I understand it better and have an idea of actually how long Ill spend in each country. In reality Im going to try it first to see if get on with it and see if the area suits me.

Yeah i think itll be difficult to acheive as ill probably be in the uk that much for work at least.

Its reassuring though, Ive spoken to dale at BTG and the house prices in the are are dirt cheap for what you get. Just looks like the whole mortgage system is a bit different and deposits are more like 50%!!!!

I know rental prices are very reasonable there - might be worth trying that first to see if it's for you.
