Appeal against a notice of change to the artists' social security contribution

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If the Künstlersozialkasse has sent you a notice of change and you do not agree with it, you can lodge an objection.

Based on your objection, the Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) will check again whether it has made the correct findings. This can be done solely on the basis of the previous facts or on the basis of additional information or documents that you have subsequently submitted during the objection procedure.

You have the right to appoint an authorized person to communicate with the KSK on your behalf. This can be a lawyer, for example. If the appeal is successful for you, the KSK will usually reimburse the costs of the authorized person. The costs of a tax consultant cannot be reimbursed.


Process flow

You submit your objection to the notice of change to the artists' social security contribution in writing to the KSK.

You should note the following points in your letter:

  • You explain which determination or determinations you would like and give reasons for this request. For example, you could write
    • why you are not subject to the artists' social security contribution or
    • why you consider the recalculation of the artists' social security contribution to be incorrect.
  • You can submit the reasons and any further documents at a later date at any time.

The KSK will contact you if the information you have provided or the documents you have previously submitted are not sufficient for a decision on your objection.

To ensure that your appeal is successful, you should adhere to the deadlines set by the KSK. Deadline extensions are possible on request.

If a decision has not yet been made on your objection, you can withdraw it at any time.

You will receive written notification of the decision on your objection.

  • If the KSK has wrongly or incorrectly determined your obligation to pay the artists' social security contribution, it will revoke the old decision and you will receive a new decision.
  • If the KSK considers your objections to be unjustified, the KSK's Appeals Committee will decide on your appeal.
    • If the Appeals Committee decides in your favor, you will also receive a written decision.
    • If the Appeals Committee confirms the KSK's decision, you will receive a written notice of appeal explaining the reasons for this.
Requirements
  • You have already reported your fees and received a statement from the KSK.
  • The KSK will recalculate your artists' social security contribution if your notification and thus also the statement subsequently prove to be incorrect.
Which documents are required?

As a rule, the KSK will ask you for any missing documents that it needs to make a decision.

However, you can also submit any documents that you consider important in order to substantiate your request.

What are the fees?

There are no costs for you.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

For notification of the decision in Germany: 1 month.
For notification of the decision abroad: 3 months.

Processing duration

Usually 1 to 6 months.
