Becoming a Freelancer in Spain

August 16, 2016

I’ve thought about it for so long, and I’ve now decided to go “autónomo” (= self-employed) in Spain. To try my luck as a self-employed translator/language teacher..as a full-time freelancer! :) Find my own clients, create invoices for my services, take care of my tax matters by myself and so on. I’m excited!

 

I must say that the whole system of becoming self-employed in Spain seems like bit of a jungle to me. First of all, coming from Scandinavia, I don’t understand why you have to pay to become self-employed, and quite a lot of money too! Luckily, you get a discount the first 18 months. Actually, the first 6 months I’ll only have to pay 53 Euros (including social security); after that, it slowly goes up.

 

Now, I want to share this short and great article with you, that explains step-by-step how to get started. If you feel a bit lost, just like me, then this is a good starting point:

I’ve got my Spanish bank account, my NIE (from the police station) and a social security number (from a short-term job I did last year), so I’m ready to move on. I’m going to book my appointment with the Hacienda (= Spanish Tax Agency) at the end of this month – one step further towards my self-employment :)
