Cool Company handles all administration for our own employees and ensures that the salary comes to the account after the invoice is sent and the customer paid. But in between questions can of course arise. Here we have gathered information and answers to questions that can arise when you are a freelancer or consultant.

Do you need help getting started?

Cool Company takes a fee of 5.98% of the invoiced amount excluding VAT. The fee includes:

  • Reporting and paying taxes, contributions and VAT to the Swedish Tax Agency.
  • Paying your salary with the tax already deducted.
  • Bookkeeping, auditing (KPMG) and debt collection (Intrum Justitia), but please note that legal matters are not included in debt collection.
  • Administering your ROT & RUT (non-commercial clients) deductions. There are no fixed fees or hidden charges.
  • When you pre-register an assignment, we make sure that you have the insurance you need.

You get paid within 24 hours of us receiving payment from your client. You can select payment terms of 10, 20 or 30 days for your invoices (i.e. the number of days your client has to pay). We notify you by email when we receive your client’s payment.

Need to be paid even quicker? You can apply for Cool Company’s ExpressPay® service. That way, you get paid as soon as we’ve approved your ExpressPay® application and the client has approved your invoice.

When you create an invoice for your work, you can always see your net salary at the bottom of the screen. Click on the ‘Our calculation’ heading to view a detailed summary of the invoice’s various costs, including the ones you are paying to Team members, and ROT or RUT costs.

Tip: Before accepting an assignment, you can work out what your salary will be depending on the size of the invoice. This can be useful when deciding how much to charge for an assignment. 

The salary specification for the current month is updated every time you request a payment. The specifications for previous months contain the complete accumulated summary.
