I am freelance, and would like to return to Germany to work again. However, I will not work under AUG, because the deductions are so much.
Googling shows that self-employed would be the best way, and would let me retain the most money (I think).
Can I (as an EU citizen) work as a self-employed software developer in Germany? Or are there restrictions (for instance, self-employed people usually have multiple clients)?
My aim is have minimum deductions for tax, social security, etc (legally, of course). I do not want to go there, claim that I a self employed & discover that the tax office does not agree after I have been there for 18 months.
