I'm a freelance web developer from Morocco, I started a small business for selling car parts 4 years ago and have legal documents ...etc, I stopped the business 1 year after and focused on freelancing which I've been doing for more than 7 years but started full time just couple of years ago. However, I still have the legal documents for selling car parts...etc

Now I have a conference invitation in Germany related to web development and the work I do as a freelancer, I have proves of income from freelance clients, and have letter from a company I work with. My question is: - Should I include the car parts business papers with these documents in the application or not, knowing it's completely unrelated to what I do at the moment.

    What relevance does the defunct business have to your current financial status? Apr 14 '19 at 17:27
  • @MichaelHampton the car parts business does not generate any income for me now and because it's exempted from taxes I still have the documents and didn't close or cancel completely. Currently, all my income comes from freelancing which is 3x the average employer salary here in my country.

Ali_k: welcome to this forum and (assuming the visum-request will be approved) welcome to Europe! According to a checklist of the Germany embassy in Morocco, proof of income over the past three months is required. So no, I would not include the documents of the business you had 7 years ago.
