My work contract is ending on February 28th, 2021 and I registered for the unemployment benefits on 11th December, 2020 via the portal. I haven’t received the confirmation yet. 1. Is it a problem since I have registered after 10 days for the unemployment benefits and the total period does not amount to 3 months? 2. Also I am contributing for a total of 16 months since I was employed for the said period, so for how many months am I eligible for the unemployment benefits? Thank you so much.
Excellent information and very well done. Do you know how much lower an offer should be an apartment that has a tenant who does not have to move and fairly low rent. Thanks.
Hello, firstly, thank you for publishing such great content about life in Berlin! It’s a great read!
Just a quick one – you don’t mention anything about where to find the best dog or cat food in Germany. After moving to the country, I found it difficult to choose a high-quality pet food for my four-legged friends. I have now teamed up with a pet food company and helping other English speaking expats with their pet food choices. Would it be possible to chat with you about the option of me writing a guest post on your blog?
I work for a Fintech company who power currency exchanges and international payments. We’re already working with a company in this sector who help individuals get their pension when they leave. They then use our services to make sure they get the most out of any conversion if they’re no longer in a EUR denominated country and therefore need to convert the EUR into another currency. Is there anything we can do to help your readership?
I am interested in setting up a mini GmbH for digital marketing and webmastering in Germany with headquarters, an intra-community VAT number and a bank account.
The annual turnover would be about 500.000 Euro.
Is it necessary to travel around the country to buy a pre-incorporated or a new company?
What documents are required to incorporate a company and open a bank account?
How long does it take to form a company?
In which bank do you open accounts?
What would be the total cost to set up a mini GmbH with a capital of 500 euros with registered office, VAT number and bank account?
Finally can you provide me with the address of an accountant?
I work with refugees in the United States at the University of Denver. I have worked in refugee resettlement for over 4 years now and I am hoping to gain some perspective when I travel to Europe this summer. In July I will be presenting my refugee integration model at the United Nations and will fly directly to Poland for a dear friend’s wedding in Krakow. After, I am hoping to spend time in Germany or perhaps a few other places in order to spend some time with individuals working with refugee integration. I am open to many different options and possibilities. I am reaching out to introduce myself and hopefully establish contact in order to share best practices and to broaden my perspective of resettlement internationally.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon, at least, just to connect!
