working as freelancer in Hong Kong
I am searching for a job in Hong Kong, but I don't have any work permit and some companies told me already that achieving a work permit would take them too long. That is why I thought about becoming a freelancer.
1: Does anybody know, if it is an alternative to work as freelancer to start work immediately?
2: Does anybody have experience/ information about the process of becoming a freelancer (where do I have to register, what kind of documents are needed, how long does it take?)
3: What does it mean financially to work as freelancer (do I have to pay health insurance by myself and are there any special tax aspects or other things I have to consider?)
4: Does a freelancer have to work for more than one company?
It would be great, if anybody can help. Thanks so much!
