Independent contracting

Independent contractor, freelancer, sole trader, running your own thing - whatever you call yourself and in what shape or form you choose to form your business - theres still one thing that is true for all. It is yours. Being your own boss might seem lika a jungle. We've sorted out what's what for you.

What it means to be an independent contractor

Independent contracting can be regarded as a third form of employment and lies between self-employment and employment. As an independent contractor, you are employed by Cool Company, but manage your jobs as if you had your own company. You find your own customers, determine your own fee, payment terms and how fast you want your money.
As an employee of Cool Company - we take care of employer responsibility. We handle accounting as well as handle taxes, fees and ensure that they are paid in time so that you can focus all your time on your assignments and customers.

Cool Company's services are perfect for freelancers that wants to get started quickly without starting their own business.
