Company number; application

When hiring the first employee (450-euro employees, employees subject to social insurance contributions, trainees), you must apply for a company number from the company number service of the Federal Employment Agency. The company number is required, among other things, for the monthly settlements of social contributions.

Description

If you want to employ workers, you need a company number. The company number must be entered on the notifications to the health insurance fund and is important, for example, for company-related work permits.

The registration procedure for social insurance collects coded data on the activities of employees. This enables the Federal Employment Agency to fulfil its statutory mandate to monitor the extent and nature of employment as well as the situation and development of the labour market in occupational, regional and economic terms.

The company number is issued by the company number service of the Federal Employment Agency with the following exceptions: The German Pension Insurance Knappschaft-Bahn-See is responsible for private households that employ persons exclusively on a 450-euro basis, for miners' companies and for maritime and fishing companies.
