How easy is it to become a self-employed person?

“Yes, it is a plan created ten years ago and it has simplified the creation of companies in France since it is enough to register online and it is free” replies Monique Sentey.

The AFP question: Have companies like uber abused the status of auto-entrepreneur?

“Companies like this are platforms that allow self-employed people to have a business. Abused? Not really because it would not work if they were employees ”replied the UAE General Delegate.
