The flexible kind of service and specialized expertise of freelancers is becoming increasingly important for everyday business. The distinction between freelancing and dependent employment is often a challenge for entrepreneurs as the boundaries are fluid. Additionally, the handling of projects is becoming increasingly agile and dynamic. A quick decision on the assignment of a freelancer is often essential.
An incorrect classification of the work relationship involves high risks. The discrepancy between contract and reality can result in consequences in the areas of social insurance, wage and sales tax as well as labor law. The serious financial effects that inevitably arise - especially through the subsequent demand for additional social security contributions - can threaten the existence of the company concerned.
With PwC's Quick Check Freelancer App*, we have developed a free and efficient tool that can be used to filter out critical contracts or work relationships - regardless of the number of freelancers or the size of your company.
By using our free app, you can not only identify a potential problem quickly and in time, but also receive suggested solutions on request. The app's constantly updated list of questions helps you to make a reliable initial assessment in just a few steps. Even a critical result should not be an obstacle - we will be happy to advise you personally and make the use of freelancers' services as legally compliant as possible.
*Currently, the app is only available in German
