the freelancers’ cooperative
Smart is a social enterprise for freelancers that combines resources to provide services and support.
Through the Smart cooperative, you can run your freelance projects without having to register as a business and obtain a tax number.
You can concentrate on your creativity and customers, while the cooperative takes care of administration, social insurances and legal protection.
Smart provides members with administrative services (invoicing and payment collection), an upfront payment guarantee, career consultation, access to public health insurance and professional liability insurance.
Members may obtain an employment contract from the cooperative based on their freelance income, and get access to the same social security benefits as regular employees.
Smart gives you the security of an employee and the freedom of a freelancer.
Joining Smart means becoming one of more than 100,000 members in nine European countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.
