I live in Greece and as you know in Greece the finacial situation is bad. So it make me reluctant to job offers for a freelance-contract job that I receive via mail and some of them pay well. I am thinking of working as freelancer but I have not registered as one yet and of cource I have not done any freelance job yet because of heavy tax cost.
Therefore I was thinking use an umbrella company that will cast all these worries away. But I want to ask some questions before I take a decision:
- What are the pos and cons of using an umbrella company?
- Does the sites such as upwork, peopleperhour, freelancer.com work as umbrella companies?
Usually the job offers are in European Union countries such as Belgium.
As requested Umbrella company I mean this term: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umbrella_company
