We hope that you are safe.


We are all facing a very challenging time as the coronavirus is impacting everyday life. For many freelancers and the self-employed, the situation is serious: we have heard of many of you who have lost gigs due to COVID-19. You may be unsure if you will still be able to pay your bills, if contracts continue to get canceled or postponed indefinitely over the coming weeks and months. And many of you are unsure whether the measures politicians are taking for the country will also provide the right help for freelancers and solo self-employed people.


We want to do everything we can to support you during this time. We understand that you may have many questions. We’ ve therefore set up a free legal aid hotline for our customers, in which lawyers will answer your questions about your rights and the economic effects of Corona on the self-employed. You can get free advice at the following number:


Kontist Free Legal Hotline for Coronavirus Questions: 030 12064 20023


In the coming days, the Kontist foundation will continue to strive to ensure that the self-employed are heard and sensible measures to help are being developed. We will try to accompany you as best as possible. We will also use our digital channels to network with you and bring together everyone who wants to participate in this initiative.


In the coming days and weeks you will also be able to access helpful information and resources in our blog and we will offer webinars on the topic.


And the Kontist banking app continues to help you analyze and keep an eye on your current finances and tax liabilities while you focus on securing work!


We are here for you, and will keep you updated on the progress. Thank you for your trust.


Sibylle, Chris & Catharina
