What is the difference between OP Kevytyrittäjän Laskutuspalvelu and other invoicing services in Finland?
The traditional way to invoice as a self-employed person or a freelancer is to use so-called co-operative invoicing platforms (“kevytyrittäjän laskutuspalvelut”). The drawback in these co-operative invoicing platforms is that you’re not eligible for the benefits that official entrepreneurs with real business ID’s get.
As an owner of a business ID you are eligible for the following VAT- and tax benefits:
- If your annual amount of invoicing is under 10 000€, you will get to keep all the invoiced VATs
- If your annual amount of invoicing is between 10 000 – 30 000€ you are eligible for tax deductions
- If your amount of invoicing exceeds 10 000€, you can reduce your business related procurements in your tax returns
None of these advantages are possible in co-operative invoicing platforms. With these benefits, you will earn approximately 20% more income than invoicing without a business ID.
