How does working as an entrepreneur affect the payment of earnings-related daily allowance?

When you start working as an entrepreneur, 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 working as an entrepreneur while unemployed, being employed in your company will not prevent the payment of a daily allowance for four months from the start of the employment. The income you receive from working as an entrepreneur 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 not able 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 earnings-related daily allowance.
