Why freelancing through Tentoo?

This question is best answered by our thousands of freelancers and self-employed individuals. That’s why we asked them the question. Here are the most common answers.

Extra security, fewer risks

This answer is at the top of the list. Independent professionals who only start thinking about the risks of entrepreneurship when it’s too late… are becoming less common. As a freelancer or self-employed person, you want to protect yourself as much as possible against the risks you face. Working through Tentoo Freelance offers you the same protection that employees have. As a self-employed entrepreneur, you have all the freedom you want and you build up rights for unemployment benefits, sickness benefits, and disability benefits. Read all about it here.

Part-time entrepreneurship

You work as an employee but also want to work as a self-employed entrepreneur. Perhaps you have few clients and want to cautiously test whether it’s something for you. Maybe you just like the security of a fixed income. Especially when you start with few hours, it’s nice if you can invest all those hours in your own business. And not in administration, invoicing, tax matters, and freelance debtor management. To make it easy for you, we have listed the pros and cons of being self-employed. Moreover, you can quickly get started with us without registering with the Chamber of Commerce.

Working from unemployment benefits

If you are receiving unemployment benefits, you preferably want to get back to work quickly. That happens fastest when you work. When jobs are scarce, you can choose to do individual freelance jobs. When you do this through Tentoo, you retain your rights to unemployment benefits, sickness benefits, and disability benefits, and you can even build them up further. This lowers the threshold to participate in the labor market again.

Working for one client

If you only have one client as a self-employed professional or freelancer, this can cause problems with the tax authorities. They may see the collaboration as a disguised employment relationship. This is also known as “sham contracting”. When you work through Tentoo, you don’t have to worry about this. You are fictitiously employed by Tentoo, which makes us your employer for the tax authorities. From that basis, you can work as a freelancer/self-employed person for as many or as few clients as you would like.


For many self-employed entrepreneurs, the convenience of working through Tentoo Freelance is a nice bonus, but for some, it’s the main reason to work with us. They have no interest in keeping track of their own administration (or don’t have time for it) and appreciate that everything is taken care of for them. No need to worry about administration, taxes, freelance debtors, or non-paying clients: pretty convenient, right?

"Tentoo has been working for me for over 12 years."

Tim is a Laser & Lighting Operator and has worked as a freelancer through Tentoo for 12 years.

“For me, Tentoo Directors Cast and Crew mainly means freedom to do what I’m good at. I can enjoy lighting artists without spending too much time and energy on peripheral issues regarding my earnings and compensation.

I remain “my own boss” and make my own arrangements. At the same time, I enjoy a healthy and workable employment relationship and my social and liability insurance are covered. Unlike other self-employed people around me, for example, I did receive social benefits when my sector was shut down during the corona period.”

Linda Dijkman-Van Ark is a freelance make-up artist. She works through Tentoo and feels she is totally an independent entrepreneur.

“I look for my own clients and decide everything myself. The difference with self-employed people who don’t work through Tentoo is mainly in the risks. I can fall back on a social safety net and have certainties. I feel very comfortable with that.”
