The future of work is also on our blog
More and more employees today want to work more freely, to choose their working conditions and their salary. And frankly, at oyesk, we understand them!
Being an employee means carrying out the missions you are given without really having a say in them. It also means respecting the schedules written in the work contract. You lose freedom with these imposed schedules throughout the week. Sometimes, you have difficulties to reconcile your personal and professional life. And above all, being an employee means being financially dependent on someone. Whatever your results, your salary is fixed, written in stone (well, in your work contract).
Say no to this life that no longer suits you, become independent. Becoming your own boss means managing your life as you wish, making your own choices, but also being paid according to the work you do. You need money? You accept assignments. You've been working well for a while and want to take some time off or reduce your workload? You can. Only professional independence can give you this flexibility. And that's a luxury many people dream of.
Becoming your own boss, even if it offers many advantages, is not a long quiet river. You want to create your own company? First of all, there is the headache of choosing the legal form. Will I become an autoentrepreneur (or microentrepreneur)? This is the ideal solution to start up, become your own boss and reduce your expenses, but it is not very protective. Do you have the soul of a business creator and wish to develop your activity with employees? This time, you should opt for the sole proprietorship, the EURL (sole manager) or the SARL (with at least two partners). Finding a chartered accountant, or even a lawyer to draw up the balance sheets, write the articles of association, etc., your small business will involve time-consuming administrative procedures.
And don't forget to take risk into account. If you have no more assignments tomorrow, what will you do? As an entrepreneur, you cannot claim unemployment. Well, yes, it is possible today, but you have to respect some rather restrictive conditions.
If you are not ready to take risks, oyesk has the solution to help you become your own boss in a more serene way while enjoying the advantages of the employee status.
The portage salarial is a solution that has been put in place to support people who want to gain independence while controlling the daily risk. It is a tripartite contractual relationship. The employee is carried by a freelance administration company and carries out missions for clients. The employee signs an employment contract with the freelance administration company. The latter signs a commercial contract with the final client.
According to one of the trade unions of freelance administration, nearly 100,000 people have chosen to be freelancers1. They have an average salary of €2,517 in 2020, a comfortable income considering the advantages offered by this solution.
This time, there's no need to start your own business. You are in professional reconversion and are afraid to launch yourself? The portage salarial offers a mixed solution. You are independent and determine your way of working. You find your clients and manage them in your own way. You set the price of your missions freely, you are in control of your turnover. At the same time, you benefit from all the advantages of an employee, namely a real social protection.
Even if you are self-employed, you benefit from a complete social security coverage: social security, pension, complementary health, unemployment, which clearly reduces the risk.
The portage salarial offers another advantage that is far from negligible and that you will appreciate its true value: the delegation of administrative tasks.
Creating your own company implies heavy administrative procedures. Here, everything is taken care of by your freelance administration company (administrative and accounting procedures, etc.). Independence while being accompanied, that is what this solution offers you :
It also manages all the social obligations:
• declaration of employment ;
• medical examination ;
• payments to the various funds ;
• work certificate, etc.
In short, you only have to concentrate on your activity to develop it. All this time wasted managing administrative tasks can be allocated to your missions and your clients. By focusing on them, you offer them an optimal service to encourage them to continue collaborating with you.
Oyesk offers you to put forward your profile to its partners to help you find new missions. So, convinced?
Setting up a freelance administration offers another advantage to consider when choosing your professional status: it is a real springboard to become your own boss permanently.
By being a freelancer, you create your own job and can test it for the duration of your choice. Without taking any risk, you can determine if your activity is viable. Let yourself be carried for a few years, in order to create a portfolio of clients and to make a name for yourself in your field. Then, opt for the creation of a company to be completely independent.
Creating a company requires a market study and a business plan. However, all this remains only an estimation of the potential of your activity. By being carried, you know who you are addressing, if your activity has a future and if you manage to live from it. It is a life-size test that opens the way to independence.
