In which case may a domestic helper work on account?

If your domestic help is self-employed, you can remunerate the service rendered via an invoice and do not have to register your domestic help.

In order to issue invoices, the cleaner must be visible on the market under her own name, on her own account and have a trade licence. Regular work for several regular customers, on the other hand, is not sufficient for self-employment.

If you are unsure whether your domestic help is actually self-employed, be sure to ask to see the business licence and proof of insurance when you first hire them.
