It should be acceptable as long as you did not make the decision yourself.
But thats Catch22!!

I understood that you'd have to close the company down. Then you'd be entitled to unemployment beneift.
I came across this while searching. Relevant excerpt:

Employees of AG and GmbH are considered employees and are therefore better off. However, two prerequisites must be fulfilled:

The salary must actually have been paid out.

The corresponding contributions to the social security funds must have been paid.

As long as the company has not been liquidated and the entrepreneur still has management responsibility (as a board member, unlimited partner or controlling shareholder), there is no entitlement to unemployment compensation.

So, it seems that i cannot get any support from chomage, despite having paid in for 5+ years

Any suggestions? Anyone....?
