From a tax and accounting standpoint, you are an employee. In terms of unemployment insurance, you are considered an entrepreneur.
The UKKO Light Entrepreneurship service uses a tax card for salaries, which is the same tax card you give to your employer when you are employed. We will also report your salary to the incomes register for you.
As light entrepreneurs are seen as entrepreneurs in terms of social and unemployment security, they are covered by the Entrepreneur's Pension Insurance (YEL). You have to take out the insurance yourself when the gross income is more than 689 euros per month and the activity lasts for at least four months.
