    It is difficult to work as a freelancer in Pakistan because the state considers all working under self-employment illegal. This type of relationship requires you to have an employer who will front your startup capital, provide your office space, and make other investments on behalf of you. Not having enough money can cause people to do things that are even more dangerous than just doing drugs or being unemployed. It's no wonder the suicide rates are so high. Banks take advantage of this by creating expensive loans with high interest rates which keep getting multiplied due to fees for late payments, brokers' commissions, etcetera until someone has taken out a million dollar loan for something they didn't think was going to cost them anything at all!

    It is essential to identify your skill, decide the rate you want to charge, research your industry and know what those rates are. You need to be educated on how to minimize fees from freelancing platforms on a per hour basis. Above all be organized and stay on top of invoicing! Lastly make sure you have a great contract set up with all the terms agreed upon before embarking on any project assignments. Optionally, you can hire an accountant or an expert in dealing with fees from freelance organizations for assistance. The salary rates will vary depending on education levels but it pays off if they are able to assist with any foreseeable problems arising in your work life.

    Hello, Based on the brief question, it does not seem that you have a clear idea of what to do. It may be advisable to work for a company until you know your options and figure out which one suits you best. Not only will an employer give you guidance and expertise in your field but there is also the advantage of learning from others and networking while working with them. Freelancing can be an enjoyable experience too but I would suggest doing so because freelancing is what suits your needs at this point in time rather than just because other people tell such marketing advises such as "freelance by trade" . It's important to know what type of product or service the freelancer wants to offer before any decisions are made.

    A freelancer can work for companies they're not employed by on a "contractor" basis. They are self-employed workers, typically hired to perform short-term jobs due to their specific skillset. Step 1 - You will need an MCC certification or some kind of measurement of formal education in the field you'll be working under. Step 2 - Companies know that there are risks when hiring new people who have little to no experience within their company, but regardless sometimes these new workers end up being the most successful members on staff. Its because this newcomer's energy brings fresh ideas while many other employees may lack enthusiasm with day-to-day jobs they've seen before.

    Freelancing is a healthy choice for those who want to avoid high monthly payments, enjoy a flexible work schedule and have a break from responsibility. Those freelancers come from different fields of expertise including coding, marketing, art and other areas. When it comes to Pakistan, the environment isn't as welcoming for this though. Recognizing common hurdles could help you cope with them more efficiently such as lack of professional mentors or inadequate business studies (namely cash flow management). What about your self-motivation? Lack of motivation can be another troublemaker since it might affect growth morale and cause further deterioration in your skills.

    It makes sense to work as a freelancer in Pakistan, and the simpler option is not to worry about taxation. Working as a freelancer in Pakistan means you won't be taxed on your income at the end of the year; this means you will have to monitor your costs and income closely and file for taxes on time if and when required (usually at the end of July for GST). If you're someone that is new or inexperienced with managing finances, it's best to assume they "won't be taxing" - but remember no company ever gives definitive answers regarding tax liability..
