Extending your Freelancer's Residence Permit

Extending the Residence Permit for FreelancersI have arranged a special setup to prepare your income report (Nettogewinnermittlung, NGE) quickly and affordably. This report is a mandatory requirement to extend your permit for freelancing based on §21 I AufenthG.

If you have a permit based on §21 V AufenthG, aka "investor's permit, " you will need an income audit, but most small businesses get away with an income report. Don't know which kind of permit you have? Please do not ask me! Instead, look at your electronic residence title (the card) on the right-hand side and the supplementary green slip that came with the card!!

Income Report vs. Income Audit

Maybe you are asking yourself the difference between an income report and an income audit. The income report relates to the German wording "Nettogewinnermittlung" while the income audit relates to "Prüfungsbericht". The difference is in the details of to report. The income audit needs much more information from you and typically addresses a company's shareholding director on a self-employment permit (§21 para. 1 AufenthG). However, an income audit makes more sense in that constellation if you are close to being eligible for permanent residency. The income audit will already provide most of the information required for a successful application for permanent residence.

Below, I want to develop the services you can choose from. The basic service will be exclusively the income report. In addition to that, I also have a kaleidoscope of optional services for you to choose as you wish. When you have the permit pursuant to "§21 I AufenthG or want to prepare the application for permanent residency, then please choose the supplementary service "audit".

Extending your Freelancing Permit – Basic Services

Since your permit is about to expire, you need to extend it. Immigration wants to connect with you again and determine whether your livelihood is secured. In other words: Have you been making enough money?

My basic services are to develop your income report / audit. Please respect that our assignment and responsibility are not to determine your bookings' correctness or answer any other questions around your numbers. If I have a simple question, I will call you, so please supply me with your phone number. To issue this vital document, I will need a report from your banking program. This could be called "financial assessment" but for sure in German "BWA / betriebswirtschaftliche Auswertung" for this year. I will browse through your numbers, determine your income, and issue your income report for immigration.

This will cost you 150 € ex VAT – flat.

All this is inside my basic services. The terms of supplying are simple:

  1. You will assign me upon completion of form below.
  2. After receipt of payment, we will provide the income report within four working days.
  3. The basic assignment is then completed.

Optional / Additional Support

We often experience that freelancers want/need more support when connecting to a professional. We will gladly support your further than the basic service. Call my service number 09001 529 366 if you have a question or two about extending.

If you have a severe issue you are worried about; then it is better to book an initial consultation.

Here are the optional services we offer:

  1. Drafting a checklist to prepare yourself for the appointment at immigration,
    it will be personalized and typically show all required details,
    € 35
    if you want or need to discuss any necessity in regards to this checklist, please call the service number.
  2. Accompanying you to your immigration appointment – either in Berlin or Potsdam or Werder,
    When is this needed? Whenever you deem that immigration will be causing problems – for whatever reason.
    My support: I will provide you with a personal checklist of what to bring with you to the appointment. We will meet at immigration around 30 minutes before the appointment and briefly run through your worries and concerns. If "briefly" is not enough support, then please book an initial consultation before.
    I will have the double function: 1) as your interpreter and 2) legal consultant. Wanting to be fair and in the knowledge of immigration not providing sufficient time slots, I will only come to an existing appointment – availablity permitted. When urgent/short notice, best call my office upfront and request my availability for a specific day and time.
    € 300 for Berlin and for Potsdam or Werder € 400.
  3. Livelihood Calculator
    Immigration wants to determine that you are making enough money to finance yourself without public support. We have a valid calculator that we can prepare for you. What is the advantage of this calculator? It will save the official's time, and you will get your appointment and/or the extension sooner. Generally, processing will be significantly expedited. If I am unfortunate to discover that your income does not suffice, I will provide you with hints on how to cover this gap. It will be your duty to process the leads.
    Please upload a bank statement showing your latest warm rent for your residential living and the payment of your health insurance premiums. If you are not single, please mention this in the text box below and inform me of your spouse's gross and net income and health insurance premiums. You can gladly upload the latest payslip.
    € 55
  4. Income Audit
    When applying for permanent residency, it is best to order an income audit. This approach will save you time and money. We will provide you with a checklist of all documents/information needed, which you may upload to a SyncBox we will open especially for you.
    € 490.

N.B. All fees are ex VAT.

We look forward to serving you!
