If you start working as a job student, you should take care not to exceed a certain number of legal limitations.
- You are entitled to 475 hours per year, during which you are allowed to work at reduced social contributions.
- You are not allowed to work more than 240 hours per quarter (except in the summer period), otherwise you will lose your entitlement to child benefits.
- If you earn too much, it is possible that:
- you will have to pay taxes yourself;
- your parents will have to pay higher taxes, since you are no longer considered under their responsibility financially.
The infographic ‘Four things to bear in mind’ offers a survey of the different rules. It fits on an A4 sheet, so you can print it and hang it above your bed!
