Update to blog article from 02.11.2020: Artists’ social security contribution will not be increased in 2021 after all

On 02.11.2020 we informed you that the levy rate for artists’ social insurance will increase to 4.4 percent in 2021. We have to revise this blog article.

The Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs informed on 27.11.2020  that the previous levy rate of 4.2 percent will now be maintained due to the increase in the federal subsidy to the Artists’ Social Security Fund (Künstlersozialkasse).
