Danny op ‘t Hof has attended various meetings about the new law, where he gathered valuable intel about the new legislation. He indicates that the most important change has to do with the way the activities are described by freelancers and organization. According to the new law, there must not exist a labor relation between the freelancer and the hiring party. By describing the assignment in detail, the IRS will be less inclined to start an investigation into a possible labor relation. The freelancers demonstrates being an entrepreneur rather than being on the company’s payroll.
WIBA IT has made a checklist with regard to describing the assignment. With that checklist, the assignment can be described in detail, indicating that hiring the freelancer for the activities involved was necessary. The checklist will be provided as soon as possible.
For freelancers, there are also a number of important things, to which we will dedicate an article that will shed light on all that. For now, the crucial question is: “am I an entrepreneur?”
If the answer to that question is yes, it is important to present yourself as such in all your public expressions, for example LinkedIn, Facebook, your CV, business cards, etc. So check your profile. WIBA IT is convinced that real entrepreneurs will be able to keep working as freelancers under the new legislation.
