Working as a freelance translator as a student in Belarus: questions
Thread poster: EllendeVisser

Feb 26

Hello everyone,

I want to become a freelance translator besides my studies in Belarus to earn some extra money.
A German company has contacted me to translate documents for them from time to time. I already asked them these questions but they said they unfortunately couldn't give me legal advice.

I have a couple of questions:
-Do I need to register as an IP? And how does that work? Do I also need to pay taxes even as a student?
-Are there other options than registering as an IP? I'd rather not do that because you have to deal with a lot of tax and legal stuff I'd rather not deal with.

I would love to hear some advice from people with a similar situation!
