How Does It Work?

How does our International Umbrella Company Solution for Germany work?

Germany is the economic powerhouse of Europe and the third largest exporter globally. With its myriad job opportunities, it’s no surprise that Germany remains a focal point of European contracting.

Liberty Bishop provides an employed payroll model for contractors working in Germany, a UK company registered in Germany for tax and social security compliance, which also holds a Labour Leasing Licence (AUG licence) in order to legally lease labour to third party hirers in Germany.

Our solution engages you as an employee through our German umbrella company and deducts local wage tax and social security from your earnings, passing these taxes through to the German authorities on your behalf.
