Freelancer should register own company

Americans Freelancing

Source: https://blog.freelancersunion.org/2014/09/12/how-many-freelancers-are-there-america-53-million/

I have been working as a freelancer for many years. At the start I had no contacts, nor did I register a company. And later on I registered my own company and things started to pick up. There are routines you have to take to maintain your company, such as submitting accounting reports and filing for tax payment, and you need sufficient amount in your bank to keep your current account up and running.

Freelancers 應該註冊個人公司

I am my own boss

當個 freelancer 也好多年了,從當初沒有人脈、名下沒有註冊公司的二十多歲小子,到後來註冊公司認真經營生意,我才覺得心中踏實了許多。很多 freelancers 朋友都會認為開公司很麻煩,因為要請會計師幫忙做帳報稅,國稅局有什麼新的稅賦制度就得馬上跟進。但是我可以實在地說一句,與其等到國稅局上門討稅的時候才來聘請會計師幫忙,還不如一早就跟足手續開公司、好好做帳報稅,因為只有這樣,國稅局才真正拿你沒輒。

其實開個人公司的好處很多,各位且容我娓娓道來。

Mad World 一念無明

Mad World - HK Film

I rarely watch emotional movies, for I find them very unbearable. Crying for loved ones is not what I enjoy watching in a cinema. I stick to my principle all the time so that I can pick cheerful and funny movies when I enter a cinema.

Mad World, however, is a different story. I bought a movie ticket to support this film of Shawn Yue (余文樂) and Eric Tsang (曾志偉), just as how I supported Trivisa (樹大招風) starring Gordon Lam (林家棟) and Philip Keung (姜皓文).

Top Freelancer Countries

自由工作者靠本身掌握的技術賺錢生活。賣一個服務或技術這事情本身,就是需要夠專業才能夠將產品/作品賣出去。在我看來,成品除了要夠專業,還必須擁有自己的風格,君不見數十年過去了,東西方從未出現過類似 Guns N’ Roses 的樂隊嗎?現在或許很多人在錄影,但是可以達到杜可風水準的,又有幾人?總結一句,風格這東西是最難複製的。

上兩週我的英文文章討論過這個問題,本週應當以中文整理一遍。

自由工作者哪裡辦公?問到這道問題,多數人的回應都是說自由工作者大多在家工作。最初開始接案的階段,這答案確實正確,但是當你慢慢有生意之後,你就會考慮其他的工作地點了。 Continue reading Freelancers 哪裡工作?

Where should freelancers work?

The first answer to the question is that freelancers usually work from home. And that is how most of us first started our freelance business. Working from home can be the best option, if your home is quiet enough for you to focus on your work. Otherwise, as time goes by, we might find ourselves in need of looking at other options.

遠距自由工作者之三大條件

兩星期前我寫的英文文章中討論過成為 freelancers 的三大條件,今日亦應該嘗試以中文思考的角度梳理這三大條件。

簡單來說,自己成立工作室成為遠距的自由工作者,原因不外乎想要遠離辦公室政治鬥爭、上下班塞車、擠地鐵、擔心打卡遲到,更重要就是遠離那種需要看老闆臉色每天戰戰兢兢的生活方式。打工真的很可憐,明明住在民主國家、自由城市,老闆主管那幅嘴臉卻是威權政府高官的翻版 Continue reading 遠距自由工作者之三大條件
