Employing household work
We want to use a home cleaner who does not have their own company. Is it possible for them to invoice through Eezy and how does it facilitate the paperwork?
Yes they can, and there are many home cleaners and matrons working through us. By using Eezy you are free from paperwork and employer’s responsibilities related to salary payment. It is sufficient that you pay the invoice sent by Eezy. Eexy will then pay the service provider’s salary. You are allowed to tax credit for household work based on the paid invoice if the tax authorities’ conditions are fulfilled.
A decorator, we are using, is going to invoice through Eezy. How do we process tax-exempted expenses?
Eezy will take care of the payment of tax-exempted expenses during the salary payment procedure. The payment of tax-exempted expenses requires that they are specified on a separate row on the invoice you receive from Eezy. Eezy clarifies the conditions with the service providers regarding the expenses and covers the tax-exempted expenses. Tax-exempted expenses do not require any actions from you.
A constructor for decoration our garden wants to invoice by using Eezy. Can they also invoice the share of machine work, but also delivered materials and other supplies?
Yes, the service provider can invoice, based on your agreement, work related expenses such as machine rent and materials. You can agree on the invoicing price directly with the service provider. The service provider uses the expenses as a deduction in the salary payment and the actual profit is taxable income. Remember, that you are allowed to apply tax credit for household work from the actual work but not from the materials or travel expenses.
Does Eezy invoice the work including VAT?
Yes, because Eezy performs as a seller of the work or service and this is, with the exception of some areas, VAT included activity. This is a similar situation when buying work from a person who is invoicing through own company.
Is it more expensive to buy work from Eezy than hiring an employee?
When you are employing a person with tax card the total work price is the gross wage plus statutory expenses. When paying the salary through Eezy the invoicing total includes gross wage, additional costs related to invoicing services, Eezy’s service fee (5-7% from the VAT 0% invoicing price) and VAT (24%). Private households cannot deduct the VAT and therefore it increases the price in comparison to direct hiring. When determining the expenses the effect of tax credit for household work shall be taken into account. The tax credit can be received from the total invoicing price including VAT and our service fee. Take also into account that when hiring an employee there can be unexpected expenses. When paying salary through Eezy you only pay from the accepted and completed work.
Eezy is mostly used in situations which are short-term, occasional or project-natured. If you are employing a person for a long-term employment, direct hiring could be more profitable option. We recommend to use palkka.fi service to make salary payment more convenient in these situations.
Company as a client
What is the difference between Eezy and a recruitment service?
A recruitment services also operate in a way where you can pay the salary with one invoice. However, in many situations you are not allowed to choose the service provider or agree the price and payment conditions directly with the service provider. Eezy does not choose or deliver service providers, instead you use the service provider you choose. Additionally, we do not determine the conditions of the work, it is between you and the service provider.
How does Eezy differ from palkka.fi service?
palkka.fi service makes paying salary more convenient, but the service does not release you from employer’s responsibilities. When employing a person through Eezy, you are not an employer but a buyer of their service. Eezy will pay the salary to the service provider, thus you do not have the employer’s responsibilities.
Do I have to acquire an accident insurance for a possible future accident?
Under the current legislation you do not because you are not the service provider’s employer. Since the start of 2017, individuals working through invoicing services cannot be considered under statutory employer’s accident insurance. However, Eezy has acquired an accident insurance for service providers. The insurance is valid immediately after registration. Eezy does not take responsibility of possible future interpretations of law against the current interpretation.
I haven’t found suitable service provider for the open position. Does Eezy deliver service providers?
Eezy does not deliver service providers, but users of Eezy service market their work in jobit.fi service. If none of the available service provides conform your requirements, you can leave a free job advertisement.
A service provider would like to use his own materials. Is it possible? How is the price of these materials determined?
Yes, this is possible and you can agree directly with the service provider about the invoicing of work related materials, supplies, rental expenses, travel expenses, etc. Additionally, you can agree directly the invoicing price of these expenses with the service provider.
We need commission-paid sales representatives. Until now, we have required them to have their own company. Not all of them are willing to establish one. Can they use Eezy?
Yes, commission-paid sales representatives can invoice their commission through us. Sales representative usually have travel and accommodation expenses and the representative can use these as deductions, just as they would working through their own company.
We work as event producers and we occasional need a lot of temporary employees. Salary payment takes a lot of work, can we use Eezy?
Yes, many service providers invoice their work through us. You do not need to take care of employer’s responsibilities or control tax card, as you will pay for the work with one invoice. This decreases the threshold to employ individuals for short-term projects.
We have a salon which also offers other type of beauty care services. Most of the employees are working based on chair rental. Can these person work through Eezy?
Yes, and there is a lot of persons working similarly. Typically the clients, of the service provider who is renting the chair, pay the service directly to the host company, and then the service provider invoices his commission, for example monthly, through Eezy.
