SaraBerlin posted a topic in BusinessHi all, I want to start self-employment as a side job to my part time job. Could somebody advice me with the questions below. Since it's a very specific case, I could not find any answers: Do you get unemployment benefits in Germany if you lose your job but you are self-employed at that time? If yes, is there a limit of how much you can earn from self-employment? Please let me know if there is anything else to be aware when having a part time self employment next to your job - really appreciate. Thank you!
