Request clearance certificate for statutory accident insurance companies

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

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

Do you want to commission another company with a service as the main company? Then it is advisable to ask this company for a qualified clearance certificate. This way, you ensure that the potentially contracted company is reliable and trustworthy . At the same time, you avoid being liable for its social security contributions should it fail to meet its payment obligations.

For this exemption from liability (so-called exculpation), only qualified clearance certificates are accepted. 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.
