For self-employed workers

Which documents do I need to get to work in the Netherlands self-employed?

As a self-employed worker you need to be registered in the Chamber of Commerce, check the website kvk.nl for more information. Before we can put you to work on a project, we ask for a valid extract from the Chamber of Commerce.

WHICH CERTIFICATES AND INSURANCE DO I NEED?

We ask at least a VCA-Basis certificate from our self-employed workers. The certificates and insurance that are required, depend on the kind of job, where the policy of the client will be followed. An electrical engineer, for example, needs to possess a NEN 3140 certificate. A bitumen roofer needs a valid fire insurance policy. We always indicate which information we need from you.

HOW DOES THE invoicing go?

Before the start of your work, you’ll receive empty hour coupons from Roofassist. You’ll write down your worked hours on these coupons every day. At the end of the work week, you’ll have to let your hours get signed by an authorized signatory from the user enterprise (in most cases that’s the foreman). You’ll make an invoice (reverse charge) with these signed hours, which you can email to: info@roofassist.nl.

WHEN WILL MY INVOICES BE PAID?

We operate with a payment period of 30 days. In some cases it’s possible to operate with a payment period of 14 days. This will be predetermined in the confirmation agreement.

THE PROJECT I’M WORKING ON IS FINISHED AT THE END OF THE WEEK. WHAT NOW?

Get in touch and we’ll make sure of a new project at Monday after the weekend. Because of our growing network we are able to think quickly in every domain in construction/engineering.
