Hire a freelancer as a light entrepreneur

Light entrepreneur is a risk free and cost-effective solution

Light entrepreneurship is a form of working as a self employed person that is growing in popularity every year. A light entrepreneur is a self-employed person who uses an invoicing service to invoice their work. Freelance workers can also use an invoicing service. Any individual can be a light entrepreneur. There is no need for a Business ID as a light entrepreneur – the light entrepreneur uses FREE.fi’s Business ID as their Business ID.

Hiring a light entrepreneur as a freelancer or a gig worker does not require the establishment of an employment relationship – remember however to make a written agreement of the assignment to be done. A light entrepreneur is a versatile solution if you have the right person for the assignment and therefore an excellent option for any company that needs new employees or an extra hand during a high-season. Hiring a gig worker or freelancer – whether a light entrepreneur or a private trader – is not as binding on the client as a traditional employment relationship, making it less financially risky for the client company.
