Dear Madam/ Sir. We are refugees from Ukraine and have been registered according to pragraph 24 in Germany. As stated in this paragrpah, we are generally allowed to engage in employed or self-employed activities. We are planning to set up an instagram account to sell notebooks, dairy planners and similar self-made paper products though the advertisement tool of Instagram. Could you please advise whether this activity is considered to be self-employment activity and requires legal actions before? Do we need legal permission to do this and what about taxes? Which steps in general should we pursue to start this activity?
