Introducing the all new ‘EMWA Freelance Benefits Package'
EMWA is pleased to announce a new attractive system for freelance members. Read on for the most important changes.
The current annual fee for the Freelance Directory Listing is €130. From January 2015, this fee will be replaced by a totally new Freelance Benefits Package (FBP), which will be priced at €90 p.a. Concurrent renewal of the general EMWA membership and FBP will be introduced in January 2015. In order to bridge FBP fees from January until your general EMWA membership renewal date, a pro-rata alignment invoice (€8/month) will be issued in January. The sterling billing option for EMWA membership will be expanded to include the FBP fee, starting once both renewal fees are aligned.
The new FBP includes:
a) Freelance directory listing
b) 15% reduced fee for standard and ‘plus’ membership of UK Freelancers Association, IPSE ‘Plus’ includes: free HMRC compliance checks; compensations for failed payments, illness, injury, broken contract, tax compliance meetings, jury service
c) Efforts are ongoing to develop similar deals for other countries
