There’s no clear definition between these labels - it’s up to your worker what they decide to call themselves.
It’s more common for self-employed people in creative professions such as design, marketing or writing to be ‘freelancers’.
‘Contractors’ or ‘consultants’ are often self-employed people who specialise in a particular area, such as IT, HR, finance or law. Someone who is contracting might work on projects for you, while someone who is consulting might do research, create reports and make recommendations.
With SeedLegals, you can create Consultancy Agreements for all the self-employed people you hire, whether they’re consultants, contractors or freelancers.
