Someone wishing to work freelance (which means, not as a company’s employee) can do it in different ways.
The “micro-entrepreneur” (or “auto-entrepreneur” status) allows you to create easily an individual company. However, turnover is limited. This status is often used as a complementary activity. For more information, go to smartexpat.com.
A freelance worker can also choose another type of business structure for his/her company, whether he/she is working alone or with associates. For more information, go to french-property.com.
