I'm a part time freelancer but don't yet own a business as the work is too sporadic and accounting expenses and paperwork are too much of an overhead for now.
I've provided services for someone in Norway and they requested an organisation number on the invoice.
What are my options, are there any intermediaries that can help? For example will selling the services as a downloadable (on ebay or some other service) suffice for their accounting? Or should we creeate accounts on oDesk.com or elance.com and pay their comission ?
Business wise he knows my situation so not doing this in a professional matter won't be a problem, but of course I wouldn't mind learning of an other way.
Legally in my country I don't need anything other than a end-of-the-year declaration to state my income and that's it, so don't need a company for that, or any paperwork, I'm just interested in getting the other part sorted.
