Administration taken care of
Sportverloning.nl takes care of the administration for contractors but is not involved in the terms and conditions that the contractor agrees with you as the client. However, the registered person does appear on Sportverloning.nl’s payroll via the figure of notional employment whereby the (wage) tax and income-related (health insurance) contribution (ZVW) due is deducted via withholding tax.
The contractor chooses to perform work for one or more clients outside employment (i.e. not as an employee) and to enter into a notional employment relationship with Sportverloning.nl and to have the invoicing of the fees run via Sportverloning.nl.

The hourly rate
When you work with contractors, you agree on an all-in rate on an hourly, commission or project basis. We think a minimum rate of 17.50 per hour is essential for self-employment. This is because there must be room to work at your own expense and risk and the contractor must be able to insure themselves against certain risks. It is important for all parties to prevent false self-employment and underpayment, this is where you help by recommending us. You cannot force a worker to work through us.
We occasionally get the comment that in an employment relationship, the minimum wage is lower for people aged 18 to 21. People then ask why this is not also the case for contractors. When you work as a contractor, you work for your own account and risk and take control of your income. That requires a minimum rate. You hire someone for their capabilities and that is not age-related.
