How do I determine how much I should charge for my services?
Start by thinking how much you would like your gross income to be per hour/month. Note that the amount you quote your client, must also cover holiday compensation, insurance, social security contribution and our service fee. Your gross income is about 92 % of the quoted price exclusive of VAT. Use our salary calculator – the most accurate in the market – to see how much you take home after all the compulsory deductions.
What is the quoted price exclusive of VAT?
It is the price of your services before VAT is added. Anyone who sells services is liable to pay VAT. The standard rate of VAT in Finland is 24%. We add the applicable VAT to the invoice on your behalf, so you do not need to worry about it.
Specific services, such as care services and the services of performing artists, are exempt from VAT. No VAT is added to cross-border services. However, you must include the VAT registration number of the recipient of the invoice to enjoy VAT exemption within the EU. For more information about Value added tax, VAT.
How is the service fee percentage determined?
The percentage is calculated from the total amount you charge your client (exclusive of VAT). The minimum charge is always €20 + VAT 24%, the maximum €300 + VAT 24%. You can see both the percentage and the actual amount of our service fee on our salary calculator once you enter the quoted price and your income tax rate.
What if my client doesn’t settle the bill?
We will send your client a reminder and, if necessary, forward the overdue invoice to a debt collection agency. We will never proceed with any debt collection measures unless agreed by you. Debt collection does not cost you anything. Please note that we will initiate debt collection only if the invoice is uncontested, that is, your client is aware of the total amount and has approved your work.
Will I accrue pension when I use your service?
Since 1st of May 2017 all self-employed persons working through invoicing company will be considered as entrepreneurs from the pension insurance point of view. Self-employed persons are transferred to self-employed person pension insurance system (YEL). This means that we will not withhold any pension costs from salaries paid.
Can assignments be shared between people?
Yes, people can share assignments. However, each person must be registered with the Työt rahaksi service. You must also let us know in your invoice request how the money is split between people.
Can I deduct expenses?
You can claim certain deductions related to the production of your service, such as mileage and per diem allowance and cost of materials needed for the assignment. Tax-exempt travel expense allowances must be itemized on your invoice. Tax-exempt travel expenses that are not itemized on your invoice are deducted from you salary slip without witholding taxes. These costs are anyway your salary and you must claim deductions for these in your personal taxation.
If you want to claim deductions for material purchases, you must provide us with the relevant receipts. These are deducted from the quoted price before your salary is calculated.
