Parental allowance can be overwhelming!
We know the questions and problems you have. Thanks to our many years of experience, we will discuss the best solution for you in a consultation. We call this optimization analysis.
- Basic Parental Allowance oder Parental Allowance Plus? Is ElterngeldPlus even worthwhile for me? Can I also work while receiving Basic Parental Allowance?
- Parental Allowance as a self-employed person/freelancer? I can't afford parental allowance at all, can I? What happens to my business while receiving parental allowance?
- Partnership bonus months Do the partnership bonus months pay off for us? How much income do we have during this time?
- Company car and parental allowance How much parental allowance does it cost me if I continue to use the company car and is it worth it for me if the employer bears the running costs? Should I rather take ElterngeldPlus?
- Additional income while receiving parental allowance How much can I earn without additional charges, is there an exact amount? How is the parental allowance calculated if I earn extra money?
- Parental benefit and photovoltaic system Do I have to specify the PV system in the application for parental allowance? What effect does the business income from the PV system have on my parental allowance claim?
- Parental allowance as (shareholder) manager Am I considered to be self-employed or employed for parental allowance? Can I even afford to take parental leave?
- Parental allowance as a single parent What options do I have as a single parent with parental allowance? Am I also entitled to the partner months?
- Parental allowance as a co-entrepreneur of a partnership Do I receive parental allowance with a resolution on the distribution of profits or with the actual share of profits? What effect does the parental allowance have on our partnership relationship?
- Parental allowance and german income tax Is parental allowance subject to income tax? Which tax class is the best for us?
- Optimization of income in the assessment period in order to get a higher parental allowance Do I have optimization potential in my pay slips? What possibilities do I have to increase my income in order to receive parental allowance?
- Parental allowance and maternity allowance Why do months of life with maternity allowance have to be basic parental allowance months? How is the maternity allowance credited against the parental allowance?
When should I book a parental allowance consultation by Einfach Elterngeld?
Basically, the earlier, the better
Optimization of income during the assessment period
Early counselling can make a lot of sense, because you can use the still existing potential to increase the parental benefit.
Examples from our daily consultation experience:
One mother took advantage of our parental benefit counselling when she was already on maternity leave. In the previous months she had a monthly gross income of 4.500€. As her partner also earned well, she invested 2,000€ per month in her company pension scheme within the framework of deferred compensation. As these 2.000€ are tax-free, the prenatal income for the calculation of the parental allowance is only 2.500€ instead of 4.500€. A retroactive change was unfortunately no longer possible here. Her parental allowance would have been 1.670€ per month without the enormous conversion of salary. Now her parental allowance was “only” 1,023€, which is almost 650€ less.
In another case, a father could have his 13th salary paid out over several months as a current taxable salary on the basis of our advice (after requesting at the employer), so that his 13th salary is taken into account in the parental allowance. Since his 13th salary was quite high, he could get almost 90€ more parental allowance per month.
There are many more possibilities for optimization. This applies to employees as well as to self-employed persons.
Huge Freedom of optimizing / planning the reference period
Don’t worry, you usually have more time than you would expect. You can claim parental allowance retroactively for the last three past months of life, and even if you’ve already missed deadlines, you can still use up your parental allowance until your child’s month 32 of life. Are you unsure? Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use our deadline calculator to test how long you have to submit your claim retroactively for month 1 of life to the Parental Allowance Authority:
The difference between a "free" consultation and a consultation by Einfach Elterngeld?
- no guarantee that the advisor is a parent allowance expert and tax expert
- little time available
- Applications are generally not filled in together
- no concrete calculation of parental allowance
- no concrete calculation of additional earnings
- often no alternatives presented
- no contact person available for queries from the parental allowance office
- no individual list of documents, therefore no certainty that applications are complete and correct (generally slows down the disbursement process)
- the “consultants” do not care about your satisfaction, as they receive their income independently
