notify the Künstlersozialkasse 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 based on the information and documents that you have provided regarding your self-employed artistic or journalistic activity in the determination procedure.

Insofar as changes occur in the nature of your activities, the focus of your overall activity or the legal form of your activity, the obligation to insure must be reviewed.

The same applies if you take 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, this may also have to pay artists' social security contributions.

You must currently be subject to insurance via the Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) and the legal form of your activity or the activity itself must have changed.
