The future of work is also on our blog
If I had to give my own definition of freelance administration, I would say that it is a rather atypical legal form, since it is neither a self-employed status nor an employee status in the true sense of the term.
It was during a professional networking that I discovered this new form of work. Very quickly, I became interested in this solution. At that very moment, I was thinking about launching a freelance consulting activity.
I had set myself an objective that I would not want to deviate from: to start while benefiting from support and security. This solution then appeared as an obvious one, since it offers the status of employee while allowing to remain totally autonomous.
To give you a more concrete idea of how it works, this concept is based on a tripartite contractual relationship. The employee is under a contract of employment with the freelance administration company. Then, he/she performs a service on behalf of a client company.
Becoming self-employed is a bit like an emotional journey, but one thing is sure, to try it is to adopt it!
Freelance administration has been progressively established in Europe for about thirty years. I am sharing with you some data that represent the progression of freelance administration in France.
The latter was recognized by the Labor Code in 2008, with the law of modernization of the labor market. In 2015, an ordinance was issued, providing a regulatory framework for freelance administration.
In July 2017, a national collective agreement on freelance administration was signed, which had a positive impact on the working conditions of freelance candidates.
I am sure that many of you secretly want to become an independent consultant. But you don't dare!
What if, like me, you finally allowed yourself this freedom?
Personally, if I had the audacity to set myself this challenge, it's because oyesk's freelance offer brought me all the guarantees I was expecting.
Moreover, this solution is aimed at a plurality of profiles wishing to launch a solo activity.
It is open to a large number of professions, among which: consultant, project manager, jobs related to the web and digital such as community manager or web developer: in short, any job that leads the professional to manage a portfolio of customers.
On the other hand, some activities such as regulated liberal professions (lawyers, nurses...) are not eligible.
Another strong argument is that freelance administration can be used in all sectors of activity, more specifically in all those that need external resources: public and private companies, services, industry with French or foreign clients.
The employee is under contract with the company of portage, it can be a C.D.D. as a C.D.I.
Now, let's get to the heart of the matter. In order to better understand the way I work, I will present you the mechanism of a portage solution, as well as the distribution of roles.
The employee gets in touch with client companies in order to negotiate assignments. They decide together on the specifications of the service: definition of the price, duration, objectives. The consultant carries out the mission entrusted to him by his client company.
The company that calls upon the portage employee pays the service directly to the portage company.
The company redistributes the turnover to the employee in the form of a pay slip, after deduction of social security and employee contributions.
Entrepreneurship is like a recipe, you need :

With oyesk, the freelancer focuses on his core business
It must be recognized and I am the first to defend this idea: creating a company is not an easy exercise, and I would even say that it is not improvised.
I have observed around me many people who start their own business without any preparation or support. They are not aware of one essential fact: being your own boss is not the same as being 100% free to develop your business.
There are a lot of related subjects - administrative management, accounting - that take up precious time: a lack of time that can very quickly impact your profitability.
That's why I decided to become a freelance consultant. This way, I was able to launch my business while concentrating solely on my core business. Thanks to this autonomy and freedom, I was able to devote myself 100% to my high value-added tasks.
By entrusting the administrative and accounting parts to my freelance administration company, I was able to manage my agenda and the commercial relationship with my clients on a full-time basis.
Moreover, the oyesk platform also takes care of the tax formalities, the drafting of the work contract, without forgetting the management of the income tax. What a comfort to be able to delegate these missions!
Another advantage not to be neglected is that under this status I am not subject to corporate income tax as the "cotisation foncière des entreprises" in the case of a micro enterprise.
I have noticed that one question often comes up when you want to become a freelancer: the choice of legal status. With freelance administration, there is no need to create a company.
By being a freelance employee, you can start immediately. It is an opportunity that avoids not only administrative steps, but also the comparison of the different existing legal statuses: sole proprietorship, EIRL, microenterprise, SASU...
Personally, I find that the great wealth of freelance administration lies in the possibility of combining an activity of independent consultant, while keeping the advantages of an employee status and its social protection.
Indeed, what a satisfaction to be sure that I contribute for my pension, that I benefit from unemployment insurance, or even from a company mutual insurance!
Another fundamental social protection offered by this system is that the ported employee can continue to receive back-to-work allowances, paid by Pôle emploi during his work period under contract with the agency.
✈️ Freedom and autonomy
Not only did I not have to create a company, but I am totally in control of my activity. I look for my own assignments and clients with whom to create partnerships. At the same time, I also sometimes deal with assignments proposed by the freelance administration company.
Of course, I set my own rates for my services and I am absolutely free to organize my schedule and my tasks. In terms of monthly time volume, I have to complete a maximum of 173 hours per month.
✔️ What support to become an independent consultant?
More and more freelance administration companies are offering consulting services to help new recruits boost their sales, particularly through partnerships with major accounts.
Thanks to freelancing, I benefited not only from the power of their network, but also from an easier and simplified access to missions.
My dedicated consultants' agent is also at my side to support me and help me stand out, for example in the case of responses to calls for tender.
Another service that I use regularly in my professional life, I also have access to a training offer to help me in my search for missions.
Many business-oriented workshops give me all the best practices to become a successful freelancer.
You will have understood, if you are planning to create your own business, freelance administration is a secure gateway. You facilitate the start of your activity, the management of your daily life is simplified and you benefit from a customized support to increase your turnover. Like me, you dream of being an independent consultant? Don't wait any longer, adopt freelance administration!
