I'm a British citizen living in Germany, working as a freelancer and I'm trying to work out tax here and it's made me very confused.
I also want to study here, which makes matters more difficult. As an EU citizen (for the time being) I can work according to the sames rules as German students, but I'm not sure how that affects my taxes.
As far as I understand, and please correct me if I'm wrong, as a regular freelancer I normally pay both the employee's and employer's parts of the health insurance/pension contributions and so on.
If I become a student, what happens then? As a student freelancer I would be on the student health insurance, pay income tax and pay 9.45% pension contributions (as I'm pretty sure I'll be earning more than 850€)
My question for you all is, as a freelancer would I also have to pay the employer's contribution to pension insurance? If I work more than 20 hours a week I would have to pay normal health insurance, however would I again have to pay the employer's contribution?
Thanks in advance.
