To be Self-Employed
Many are looking for solutions to be able to invoice as an individual or invoicing without having a company, self-empolyment (egenanställd) is the answer.
Self-empolyment is an easy way to be your own boss and the perfect solution for anyone that don’t want to start their own business, but still have the opportunity to control their work and have their own clients.

Who can become self-employed?
The answer is – Anyone!
If you have a profession that would work to do as a consultant or freelance, a business idea you want to realize, a hobby that you can have as an extra job or are you often asked to help people with computers, painting, carpentry, cut hair or take care of Children or dogs?
Then self-employment can be the perfect solution for you.
With a self-employment, you get the best from two worlds, you have your own business but don’t have to deal with the administration and still have the same convenience as an employed.
Self-employment suits most jobs that you can invoice.
You can work periodically, full time or part time, we don’t care how much or how often you work. It’s completely free to be registered with us, you do not pay any fixed fees, but we charge an administrative fee for our work when we do the billing.

When you are self-employed and need to put a price on your services, it’s good to have a few things in your calculation.
Are you doing this on a full-time basis? Then you should calculate to cover vacation pay, occupational pension and sick pay.
Self-employment is a job model that grows beacuse today’s labor market has a need for new flexible forms of employment. Many want greater control over their work situation and long for freedom to manage their work, to decide how much, when and where to work. The obstacle is usually that they find it easier said than done to start their own business.
A self employment can be both a way into the labor market because you can get paid for temporary assignments, or a way to try out a business idea before starting your own business. It can also be your forever job if you love what you do and don’t want the hassle with all the paperwork that running your own business creates.
