Today, in order to join Shippr's delivery network, it's imperative to have your own VAT number. We only work with freelancers, and we don't accept any other status.
However, different forms of independent exist. Here is a summary of the statutes valid to deliver with us:
- complete independent
- complementary independent
- "tremplin" independent *
- independent student **
*The "tremplin" independent is a new status that allows people receiving unemployment benefits, to keep their benefits for 12 months while testing a self-employed activity on the side.
**Independent student: students can now combine their status with the independent status in order to be able to perform paid services without an employment contract.
