FAQ

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    What is FREE.fi light entrepreneurship?

    Light entrepreneurship is a form of working, where workers invoice a company or individual customer through FREE.fi’s invoicing platform. The invoicing platform is used to invoice for the work done instead of traditional employment. FREE.fi’s light entrepreneurs operate under an assignment relationship, and use an assignment contract, which is lighter than an employment contract.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    What is the difference between an assignment contract and an employment contract

    Instead of an employment contract, light entrepreneurs have an assignment contract where the assignor is either a company or an individual. Therefore FREE.fi’s light entrepreneurs are not anyone’s employees – and the companies are not their employers. FREE.fi light entrepreneurs working under an assignment contract work entrepreneurially and enjoy the benefits of entrepreneurship, such as flexibility, freedom and larger earnings.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    What kind of companies use light entrepreneurship?

    Light entrepreneurship is favoured in industries that have a lot of seasonal fluctuation, or where the work is project-based. FREE.fi light entrepreneurship is especially popular in for example logistics, construction, IT, sales, and events industries. Nowadays light entrepreneurship and self-employment are preferred by many people who do expert-work.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    How can my company benefit from light entrepreneurship?

    FREE.fi light entrepreneurship offers solutions to companies’ employment challenges. It is no longer necessary to employ gig, part-time or summer workers with traditional employment with its side-costs and bureaucracy, but instead they can be employed as light entrepreneurs according to the company’s needs. Using light entrepreneurs saves money for the company, therefore enabling the company to pay workers a larger compensation for their work.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    How does light entrepreneurship improve a company's competitive advantage?

    By employing and preferring light entrepreneurs, companies are able to find workers easily and without heavy side-costs – according to their own needs. By employing many self-employed workers, the savings made by companies on a yearly level are significant. These savings can be distributed as a more competitive salary, or be reinvested in the business. Contact us and we will calculate the most cost-efficient employment model for you!

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    What kind of salary are light entrepreneurs paid?

    Negotiating a salary with a light entrepreneur is completely based on a mutual agreement between the assigner and the light entrepreneur. However, it should be noted that unlike in an employment contract, the light entrepreneur is responsible for their own social security like any other entrepreneur.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    Social security for light entrepreneurs

    Light entrepreneurs are responsible for their own social security just like all other entrepreneurs. It is mandatory to take YEL insurance if the amount invoiced over a 12 month period is over 8261,71 euros (vat 0%) (2022). Entrepreneurs can decide the level of their YEL insurance.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml
    Who insures light entrepreneurs?

    FREE.fi light entrepreneurs are insured with accident and liability insurances. In the event of an accident, treatment can be acquired quickly through the Fennia nurse. Our liability insurance covers damages up to 1 000 000 euros.
