As soon as a foreign employee arrives to Germany the employment agencies need to take care of:
- The registration of the person in Germany at the local authorities
- The registration at the German tax office where people receive a tax card (‘Lohnsteuerkarte)
- The health insurance
- Guidance at work etc.
Most German companies and foreign staff don’t have the resources and expertise of organizing this and so for them it’s perfect to work with a German employment agency.
