So is it German source income if I have not lived there during the year at all, but it in effect comes from a German customer? That may be my confusion. Is it only German source if I am living there when doing it?
No hangovers. Everything in 2014 was done while resident in UK. Does that make it not "German source". What I am struggling with is the meaning of German source. If I have a German customer that I am doing online work for, but I do the work totally in the UK, is that a German source. I think I originally thought they meant that, but maybe German source is only work done while living in Germany.
I think this is okay now. I've just figured out what happened. When the initially talked to me about this was after we got mail from them in April 2014 and I told them we were no longer in Germany. I had assumed their offices talked to each other and they knew I had deregistered in Nov, but they didn't. They do know, though, because it came up when I was filing . Okay. This is fine.
