Freelancing in Germany

Posted in Germany forum

Hello Guys,

My wife is already working in Germany and having all papers set including the working visa.

This summer I plan to move with the kids and join her in Germany.

I am a senior software engineer and I am already working as a freelancer for a Swiss company.

My question is about the status of freelancers over there. May I have some issues with the authorities or something like that cuz in reality (officially) I will be unemployed.

Note: I don't plan to use the social help and such. I just want to be able to live there without hassles.

P.S. Do I need to pay taxes since I will be practically not enjoying any benefits of the German country?

Thank you so much for any info
