You need to file your taxes but you do not speak German fluently? The German tax law seems overwhelming and confusing? You are not even sure if you have to file a tax return in Germany? We get you. Tax returns in Germany can be tricky for foreigners - it even is tough for Germans.
As a private person, when you are living and working in Germany and when you do not have any income from other sources, then it is not mandatory to file your taxes. It might be in your best interest to complete a tax return though. If you do have other sources of income through a "side-hustle" or property for example, then you most likely need to file your taxes in Germany.
There are also several German laws that regulate a company's tax and bookkeeping responsibilities, and different regulations apply depending on the size of your business and the number of employees. If you are not a tax expert or if you sell goods from Germany to other European and non-European countries, it can become overwhelming. For this reason, you might want to consider contracting a well-trained accountant.
