The fee for the work is freely defined in the contract. The hourly or contractor rate for a light entrepreneur is not the same as the corresponding hourly rate in an employment contract, as the light entrepreneur pays for his/her own social security and pension, among other things, just like a self-employed person. The VAT-free price charged by a light entrepreneur is roughly 1.5 times the hourly rate for similar work. The contract should also specify the work to be carried out outside certain hours, additional work and any other costs.
