Before You Leave

  • In addition to your tenancy agreement, you should also remember to terminate other contracts (electricity, water, gas, telephone, internet, TV and radio license fee).
  • Inform the school or kindergarten that your children are leaving.
  • Notify the authority responsible for child benefits and parental allowance of your departure.
  • File a tax return (if necessary, consult a tax professional).
  • Please check whether you are entitled to a pension under the German Pension Insurance Scheme.
  • Close your German bank account (if applicable). We recommend closing your bank account shortly before you leave. This will enable you to use your account until the end of your stay.
  • Cancel insurances, subscriptions, and memberships.
  • Return your MensaCard, library card, etc.
Please note:

We advise you to start preparing your departure in good time as the standard period of notice in Germany is three months. For detailed information on the relevant period of notice, please check the respective contracts (e.g. tenancy agreement).
