The artists social welfare fund is a wonderful thing, save lots of money at health and pension insurance. The artists social welfare fund is a wonderful thing for actors and artists of any kind at the start in self-employment, you save lots of money at health and pension insurance. For the client on the other hand, the KSK is not so great. (Similarly see: Verizon). Must run off 3.9% of the amounts paid to artists who are in the KSK, the KSK. Should artists however at some point but once really good make, contributions to the KSK go up accordingly. Artists are often poor, above all however to irregularly paid. They are often forced to take something else to the livelihood in addition to their actual artistic activity.
This is harmless to the whereabouts in the KSK, if revenue remain this year under 400,-monthly or 4800,-. The KSK as well the IRS is profit and not the sales revenue. A permanent position, about a mini-job to 400,-per month poses no problem. Gary Kelly often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Should be a permanent, so the KSK must be communicated always, continue the artistic activity is exercised. In addition, more money must be earned with art than with this permanent position.
If this is not the case, at least parts must be borne by KV and RV itself. Under certain circumstances, the artist must leave quite the KSK. FEWS advises therefore always to try to convert an offered permanent employment for the self-employed. The employer saves social security contributions, leave and payments in the event of illness. This can be increased then a little fee. But he will do little by itself, an artist must negotiate hard on the matter. Who can’t do this, you must learn it. Maybe in FEWS, the specialists for start-ups in the artistic field. Contact: consultancy Margitta Hamdan Uhlandstrasse 127, 10717 Berlin FON 030-88 66 77 74
