TAX GUIDE for sexworkers: everything you wanted to know about taxation regarding adult works and escort jobs: taxes, work permit, authorities

TAX GUIDE for sexworkers: everything

Adult works and escort jobs + legality, taxes are always big questions for beginners - we are here to help

Attention! The owner and team of the Red-Life advertising sites have never, nor will they ever offer, provide any kind of erotic work, nor encourage or persuade anyone to do similar work. The website only contains advertisements uploaded by advertisers, for which they assume responsibility.

In addition to the above warning, we must also say that work permits and tax payment obligations vary not only by country, but also by province (Germany) / canton (Switzerland). What we mean here is that in exchange for a certain adult work in a Swiss canton you do not have to pay tax on it, but e.g. in another German state you do. Always ask the advertiser - who offers erotic work - about this in the first instance, and then you can look it up and ask with the help of one of the organizations below.

Adult work and escort jobs + legality

This is perhaps the most important aspect, so let's start from there. Wherever you're looking for erotic jobs, you've probably come across almost every country on the map offering extra high earnings. However, sexjob is not legal everywhere, let's clarify this first:

FORBIDDEN - sex work is illegal here:

Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo

LEGAL - sex work is legal but regulated

Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Latvia, Greece, Turkey, Luxembourg

GREY ZONE - in these countries sex work is legal, but using it is illegal

France, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland

GREY ZONE - only sex work itself is legal, but its organized forms are not

Italy, Spain, Portugal, Great Britain, Belgium, Finland, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Denmark, Estonia

If you note only one important sentence from this information sheet, it should be this:

The authorities and protection organizations stand by you!

In Austria, as we wrote at the beginning of the article, work is legal, provided that certain conditions are met. There are general regulations that apply to the entire country, and there are those that apply to individual provinces.

Erotic work / sex work in Austria is subject to mandatory registration. In the provinces belonging to the brothel system, it is mandatory to register with the municipality or the police through the brothel owner. In Vienna, you have to register with the police, while in Burgenland, you have to register with the municipality.

Legal only for those over 18. You have to take part in mandatory health screenings, and it can only be done in certain places and at certain times. There are no designated red light districts in Austria. The activity can be carried out as an individual entrepreneur.

Facilitating, mediating, profiting from someone else's ual services is considered a crime. The penalty amount varies by province. Fines can go up to 1.000 Euros in Vienna and up to 10.000 Euros in Salzburg.

Austria and taxation: The legal regulations are very complicated, so it is recommended to use expert advice before starting work and to be informed about the applicable rules for a given situation (whether you are working as an employee or self-employed, etc.).

Sex work is legal in Germany, but there are rules that must be followed.

Work permit required - to register, you must provide your full name, registered address, date of birth, document certifying nationality or work permit, and two photographs. Afterwards, they will tell you in a personal informational conversation what rights and obligations come with the job, such as taxes, health insurance and counseling opportunities. In addition, a health consultation must be attended annually (twice a year for those under 21).

In Germany, everyone who works pays taxes. So you also have to pay taxes on your income from prostitution / sex work. This means the following: You must give a part of the money earned to the state. And this is the case regardless of whether you work as an employee or you pursue this activity independently. In Germany, the tax is paid to the finance authority.

What kind of taxes do you have to pay?

It depends on whether you are self-employed or employed.

  • If you are self-employed, i.e. you can freely choose your working hours and workplace, then you are carrying on a business. In this case, you have to pay income tax and possibly business tax.
  • Only those who operate a prostitution establishment and whose annual profit exceeds 24.500 euros pay business tax.
  • If you are an employee, i.e. you work in a brothel and have an employment contract there, you must pay income tax.
In addition: As a person performing an erotic job independently (not as an employee), you must have certain insurances, and there are also insurances that can be taken out voluntarily. You must have health insurance and care insurance.

However, you can decide whether to take out pension insurance, accident insurance and unemployment insurance. This means that you are not obliged to take out such insurances.

Self-employed persons pay the cost of their insurance on their own.

The most common types of work permit that you may encounter during erotic work in Switzerland:

IMES / 90-day residence permit:

Citizens of the European Union have the opportunity to work in Switzerland for 90 days per year (Jan. 01-Dec. 31) without having a permanent Swiss address. To do this, before starting work you must register on the website of the Département Fédéral de Justice et Police (Federal Ministry of Justice and Law Enforcement) at the following link:

It is important that the printed version of the notification form is always with the employee.

  • In most cases you do not have to do this, in most erotic workplaces it is the owners who prepare the work permits for you and they give you your documents, which you have to show during an inspection.

Short-term residence permit (L permit)

A European citizen who wants to settle and work in Switzerland for a maximum of 365 days can apply for a type L permit. If you have been working in a salon for a long time, you can get an L permit as an employee. But if you do erotic work in a private apartment or on the street, you will be issued an individual L-type work permit.

Long term resdence permit (B permit)

This is relatively rare, as sex workers usually like to try out more than one workplace, but a B permit can also be obtained.

If you are a European citizen who wants to settle and do sex work in Switzerland for a period longer than 365 days, you can apply for a type B permit. If you work in a salon / studio, you will receive an employee permit, and if you work in your own apartment or on the street, an individual employee permit will be issued.

If you work as an employee at a particular workplace, for the type B permit you must prove that you really want to stay in the country for longer than one year, and that the owner of the workplace plans to work with you for longer than one year.

Basic concepts

All kind of erotic and adult works are jobs, that only a 18+ person can do, because it usually includes sexual services and in return, the client pays money or buy expensive gifts for the sexworker. A sexworker's service can include almost anything that you can imagine, but even adult job without sex eg. fetish jobs, femdom, massage job, hostess job, webcam job or dancing. And also it doesn't matter if you are boy or girl or trans or even your sexual orientation, because any adult person can be an escort or a sexworker. Don't forget, that the choice is always yours, nobody can force you to do sexwork! Usually we distinguish between incall and outcall erotic jobs, so for exaple the sexworker can work in a studio, private salon or brothel, or it can be outcall, so they meet somewhere with the guest, that can be a hotel, the client's house or anywhere else.. 

You can first think, that every kind of escorts earn money with sex, but it isn't the truth! Escorting in reality means companionship, e.g. wealthy men who are lonely or just want to have a little fun or relieve stress pays for an escort's time, to be with her/him. They want to skip the dating part, and immediately jump to the best time ever, so basically these people want to hire a romantic partner for only a short term. We call it outcall, if the guest orders the company to their hotel room, home or weekend house etc.. There are VIP or High Class escort girls also, who are especially expensive and only the richest can pay for their escort work services, which include the 'GFE' girlfriend experience, which means that the escort girl treats the guest as if she would be his real girlfriend, this is also one of the most wanted service.

Erotic massage work just like the tantra massage is an erotic work category, because the masseuse girls or boys can provide extra services in addition to massage! Of course you can apply for a normal massage job without any sexuality, but if you would like to offer more in your service, then you can choose from erotic massage jobs, for more earnings. There are several types of classic massage, which are completely sex-free and erotic-free work, but on Red-Life you will usually find tantra massage work, which provides a tantric experience, also called touching the soul through the body! In each case, before you apply for one of them, ask about the specific job, what kind of massage it is and what the expected services are.
