The legislator starts from the premise that the spouse or co-habiting partner of a self-employed worker is an assisting spouse when he or she:
is providing effective assistance in the business of the self-employed worker
and does not have his or her own income from another professional activity, or a substitute income that entitles him or her to a full-fledged coverage in the social security system
The legal presumption is correct
You are not effectively engaged in assisting your spouse or partner
You have sufficient social security rights of your own
