Different countries, different tax laws…
Starting a job or studying in a different country or moving one’s place of residence abroad has never been easier. However, these favourable opportunities of globalization bring with them far-reaching tax-related repercussions. While tax law is a challenge for laypeople even in their own country, foreign tax law and intergovernmental double-tax agreements (as well as the corresponding special standards of German tax law) also need to be taken into consideration.
In the case of permanent emigration, most people seek the advice of a tax expert as a matter of course. Albeit, even in the case of temporary stays abroad, for studying or participating in a project, there may be hidden problems which, however, often go undetected or are misinterpreted in actual practice.
