Wage portage

What's this ? A “three-way relationship” between the service provider (or “portee”), his client, and the portage company. It is the porterage company that takes care of all the administrative tasks, invoices the fees to the customers and pays them to the porter in the form of a salary, after taking a percentage in the process (between 5 and 15%). Born in the middle of consulting executives who sought to enhance their end of career, wage portage is rejuvenating and today concerns executives and non-executives.

And I knew that my income would exceed the maximum threshold allowed by self-employment. It's true that babywearing is expensive, but I can devote myself fully to my job. And make time to pick up my children from school. »
