Advising non-registered companies on the artists' social security contribution

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) informs you, as a potential entrepreneur or exploiter who is liable to pay the artists' social security contribution, about your rights and obligations.

You will receive information on whether you as an entrepreneur or exploiter are subject to the artists' social security contribution and what the amount of the contribution is.

This includes the following points:

  • why are you obligated to pay the artists' social security contribution,
  • when do you have to pay the artists' social security contribution,
  • what is to be included in your remuneration report,
  • who is a self-employed artist or journalist,
  • what is the rate of the levy,
  • what is the general procedure,
  • how do you fulfill your obligation to keep records,
  • what information do you have to provide,
  • when do you have to pay a late payment penalty,
  • what is the statute of limitations,
  • what is a compensation association.

It is a special feature that self-employed artistic or journalistic persons only have to pay half of their contributions themselves. The other half is financed by a federal subsidy and the companies' artists' social security contributions.
