When you start entrepreneurial activities, the TE Office will evaluate to what extent the activities employ you. If the activities employ you to the extent that you cannot take on a full-time job, you will be considered to be a full-time entrepreneur. As a full-time entrepreneur you are not entitled to earnings-related daily allowance.

If the activities do not prevent you from taking on a full-time job, the TE Office may consider you a part-time entrepreneur. As a part-time entrepreneur you can apply for adjusted daily allowance.

If you start entrepreneurial activities while unemployed, being employed by them will not prevent the payment of daily allowance for four months from the start of the employment. The income you receive from the entrepreneurial activities will be adjusted. After four months the TE Office will evaluate to what extent the activities employ you. If the activities employ you to such extent that you are unable to take on a full-time job, you shall be considered to be a full-time entrepreneur. As a full-time entrepreneur you are not entitled to receive earnings-related daily allowance.
