Do not start an SRO - become self-employed

In >80% of the cases, you are better of registering as self-employed compared to opening an sro: faster & easier to set up, lower setup- and closing costs, easier / cheaper visa extension, accounting less demanding (so cheaper), LESS TAXES and number of other benefits.

We can't emphasize it enough: get yourself properly informed before getting an sro - book a consultation with us. You will thank us later!
