Virtual Lunch & Learn: How to decide when to move to a GmbH or UG as a freelancer

At CodeControl, our mission is to help freelancers realize fulfilling work. We know that one of the pain points for freelancers in Germany is the decision on how to incorporate their business. To help navigate the tricky world of German finance, we were joined by our friends from Accountable, the mobile app that helps self-employed professionals optimise their taxes and give them peace of mind. In our recent session, the focus was on the benefits and downsides of incorporating.

Joining us were Tino Keller, Co-Founder & MD at Accountable and Andreas Reichert, a tax advisor with over 25 years of experience in Germany, who clarified the difference between a GmbH, an UG and a classic freelancer setup.
