I am receiving a daily allowance and am starting a small business. How does this affect my daily allowance?

If you are receiving a daily allowance and start a business, the TE Office will issue a statement, binding upon the KOKO unemployment fund, as to whether your business activities are full-time or a secondary occupation. If you are considered a full-time entrepreneur, you will not be entitled to daily allowance. However, if your business activities are considered a secondary occupation, there is no restriction on payment of daily allowance.

Your earnings-related daily allowance will be adjusted according to the income from your secondary business activities. For further information on business activities, see Instructions for entrepreneurs and Adjustment of income from business activities and own employment.
