You are not considered an assisting spouse. When your self-employed
spouse’s professional income is taxed as a remuneration of a person in charge of a business, your
spouse cannot contribute to your income with an assistance allowance.
You are required to fill in the information form sent to you by your
self-employed spouse’s social insurance fund, and send it back, duly signed.
You are not required to make a declaration of affiliation or make a statement on your honour.
Attention! It is nonetheless possible that via some other
way you may be subject to the social status of a self-employed person.
- the company - not your spouse - compensates you for your assistance: you are not an assistant
but rather a self-employed worker
- you hold shares and are active in the company: you are an active partner
