How Much Does the Consultation Cost ?

I do not have just one fee! I develop my fees around my workload, your budget, and your needs. Sound expensive? Not really.

Pre-measure costs for legal consultation

Honestly, you can do a lot by yourself to reduce my fees. One example for those on a very limited budget, take out an initial consultation for one hour to go through your application details. I will then point you to details that need to be changed. I have no problem with that. Another example: I typically quote you with services from A to Z. If this service scope is too expensive, then carefully consider what you can abstain from and continue negotiating. We will find a solution.

Free Consultation

Sorry. No mon, no fun. As Albrecht Einstein put it: "What costs nothing is worth nothing." When interested, I can support charities in a scope to be agreed upon.

You can always ask me – free of cost – what it will cost to represent your interests. I will give you a quote or recommend an expert. Some fees are negotiable. If the assignment is a "one-timer" and clearly structured, I can agree on a flat fee. I try to keep my fees transparent by giving you a description of the tasks to be done.

If you need ongoing consultation, this will be best invoiced by the billable hour. This approach is fairest for both sides of the table. If I do nothing, you owe me nothing. If I work a lot, you will have to pay a bit.

Remote Support

You are not in the vicinity? No problem! I am accustomed to consulting remotely. Best contact me via my contact form and give me a clear picture of what your needs are. Please understand that I prefer eMail correspondence – whenever possible/reasonable. If traveling is required, this is no generic issue for me. My fees remain the same, but traveling costs will have to be added. Understand as "traveling costs" not only the costs for transportation but a small compensation for lost working time due to traveling (depending on distance) accommodation. I will need €1.5 per kilometer from my office to your location.

Immigration Tests while Still Abroad

I have set up the following standardized test types for employees, freelancers/investors still living abroad. Each test costs € 250 and will help you develop the most successful immigration path to Germany! The benefit of the comfy employment immigration test is that you get recruiting support and an evaluation of vocational/educational achievements, whether they are acknowledged in Germany. The benefit of comfy immigration for self-employed is that you learn upfront whether your line of business is needed and get the precise line of business when you wish to incorporate or wish to purchase a readymade company from our associate partner, Beam my Presence to Germany GmbH.

Want or Need to Negotiate Fees?

As service providers, we do not want to dictate the fees for our services. We are generally willing to negotiate, but the question is more: How to negotiate correctly?

In the intention to make it easy, our first step was to offer all the services that would be typically needed – from A to Z. For communication purposes, individual tasks were numbered. As an example, you consider not to need no. 3, 5, 7. Communicate that.

If expedited support is really important, consider my normal response period against doubling my fees. Expedited support involves a response within two working days at the latest in Germany. If you request a "same-day response" for any working day in Germany, that will be imaginable for three times our normal fees. However, the mutually fairest approach is a time fee of € 150 ex VAT for individuals or € 200 for companies. The time fee is fair because if I do nothing, you owe me nothing; if I do a lot, I earn a bit. Time fees are settled monthly with an activity report.
