When an expat’s journey in Germany comes to an end, one needs to de-register the German address of residence. It is often recommended to start the de-registration process at least two to four weeks in advance from your termination date in the country. If you already moved from Germany and forgot to de-register, worry not, however, try to get it settled as soon as possible. If you fail to de-register after post leaving Germany, you might still be liable to pay certain taxes.
In this blog, we will give the simple steps how you can de register from Germany.
- Fill in the deregistration form below. Apart from deregistration, this form can also be used to cancel the broadcast license payments.
