Notify the Artists' Social Insurance Fund of the change in legal form or focus of activity

The determination of the insurance obligation according to the Artists' Social Insurance Act is always made on the basis of the information and documents that you have provided about your self-employed artistic or journalistic activity in the assessment procedure.

If there are changes in the nature of your activities, the focus of your overall activity or the legal form of your activity, the insurance obligation must be reviewed.

The same applies to taking up additional self-employed activities.

Please note that if the artistic or journalistic activity is carried out in the legal form of a legal person or company, it may also have to pay the artists' social security contribution.
