Being Self-employed gives job opportunities in Finland

Start your Light-Entrepreneur career as self-employed now!

You do not need your own company or business ID to sell your skills. Fewer and fewer people are working in a traditional employee-employer based tradition. The ways of how we work, where we work and even when we work, are all open for discussion. And it looks like people finally are able to make their own rules. As a result, you can do a job, send a bill and get paid to your account. So, by using an invoicing service like UKKO.fi you can easily bill your customer. It can be a temporary, part-time, full-time job or a project you want to invoice. It does not matter. When you work as a self-employed and light- entrepreneur we will do all the paperwork and bureaucracy for you, no matter how small or big your job is.

Everybody is talented and everybody has skills you can charge for as self-employed.

Self-employment, in different forms, is a good way to start working in Finland. Why? Because as a professional, you already have the skill and there’s no reason to keep that talent waiting for something like your Finnish language skills to be improved – that is if that’s not absolutely essential in your field of work. UKKO.fi is the leading invoice service for freelancers and self-employed professionals in Finland. Self-employed people can work within construction, as cleaners, pet sitters, musicians, handymen, bloggers and so on. The list is endless. Therefore whatever talent, skill or entrepreneur idea you have, you can invoice your services and jobs through UKKO.fi.  Either you are an established entrepreneur or new in the game.

Testimonials

Madeleine Humaloja, Make-up artist & stylist

I started invoicing extra jobs with UKKO since I wanted to avoid the bureaucracy with starting my own company. With UKKO I could quickly and easy invoice online both my make-up jobs and summer jobs. UKKO customer service helps even sending invoices abroad. I recommend UKKO to all my friends that do extra gigs.

Gregory Pellechi, Writer & podcaster

There are at least four government agencies you’ll have to deal with as a freelancer. The most important will be Vero*, the tax agency. Don’t worry, UKKO.fi is here to be your middle man. They are ensuring that all of your taxes are paid correctly, so you can work hassle-free.

Sini Juutilainen, Photographer

“I started invoicing my freelance work without basically any previous knowledge of the process. And turned to UKKO based on recommendations. Although I stumbled a bit in the beginning, the UKKO.fi customer service helped me a great deal and in the end, the system appeared to be quite simple to use. Also, my clients have been happy with the service! I can recommend it.

Alejandro, Photographer

"Being a freelancer is a norm when you’re a photographer. After having a trade name, I discovered UKKO.fi And then took the chance to start trying to get photography gigs again. I started growing from there.

Sofia Johansson, Substitute teacher and home work helper

With UKKO I can decide when I have time and want to take an extra job besides my studies. I do not need to be employed by an agency. I set the prices and send a bill online. It is nice that UKKO  takes care of all paperwork with paying the taxes and insurances. I recommend UKKO to everyone that wants to be seen as a professional when earning extra income.
