Request a clearance certificate for companies covered by statutory accident insurance

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Is your company a member of a trade association or accident insurance fund and has paid the statutory accident insurance contributions? Then you can prove this with a certificate of non-objection to the main company or contracted companies.

If you as the contracted company require a qualified clearance certificate, you can request this from your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.

Do you want to commission another company to provide a service as your main company? Then it is advisable to ask this company for a qualified clearance certificate. This will ensure that the potential contractor is reliable and trustworthy. At the same time, you avoid being liable for their social security contributions if they fail to meet their payment obligations.

Only qualified clearance certificates are accepted for this exemption from liability (known as exculpation). These contain additional information about

  • the parts of the company assessed and
  • the amount of remuneration.

If the contracted company submits a power of attorney on your behalf, you can request its clearance certificate directly from the relevant employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.
