Self-employed expats face a number of challenges when coming to Germany. ASEIG – the Association of Self-employed Expats in Germany – tries to address these challenges, offering solutions and services to make your life in Germany easier and your business more efficient. Over time and with growing numbers of members we will also work as a political lobbyist for self-employed expats in order to demand and foster change, where it is necessary for the sake of our members or where foreigners who are self-employed face unfair disadvantages or even discrimination.
One of the main issues or challenges for every self-employed expat coming to Germany is finding suitable (and legally compliant) health insurance. Since the German health insurance system is unique in the world, setting yourself up with health insurance can be daunting, time-consuming and even mind-boggling. We have succeeded in setting up a special health insurance group plan for ASEIG members with one of the leading German insurance companies in this field.
Other insurances and business services can also be obtained with the assistance of ASEIG and its exclusive network of vetted brokers, advisers, lawyers and tax accountants. Your membership grants you direct access to these experts and often also substantial rebates on both insurance products and consulting/advisory fees within the ASEIG network.
