Freelancing without a company

Let’s delve into some specific details about freelancing and invoicing without a company. What does it entail, and what do I need to know before getting started?

Typically, invoices are sent from businesses to other businesses or individuals. However, Cool Company makes it possible to easily send invoices as an individual. You can send invoices to both businesses and individuals without the need to start your own company. This is possible because you operate under Cool Company.

What is an invoice?

You’ve probably come across invoices many times in your life. But do you know what function it really serves, and how invoicing work for individuals? Let’s unravel the world of invoices and invoicing!

Simply put, an invoice is a payment demand sent from the one invoicing (the freelancer/company) to the one being invoiced (the customer).

Primarily, invoices are sent from businesses to other businesses or individuals. However, through Cool Company, you can easily send invoices as an individual, both to businesses and other individuals. The invoice also serves a crucial role in a company’s accounting, as it acts as verification for a business transaction. Every business transaction must be accounted for, and more often than not, an invoice forms the basis for this.

When you send your invoice through Cool Company, we deduct taxes and fees and handle all administration. To get a clear picture of how much of the total amount on the invoice you will receive as a salary, you can use our calculator.

How invoices work

Everything you do in your business is summarized in an invoice: the task you’ve completed, how much you want to be paid, and who you’ve done the job for. It serves as the documentation for what you’ve accomplished – both for you and your customer.

Your business cannot function without invoices, as they form the basis for what you ultimately take home as your net salary. Invoices are equally important for your customer, as they need them to account for the costs associated with the work they’ve commissioned from you.
