Freelancers are individuals who work for themselves rather than being a part of a company or organization. These individuals do take up projects by a company on a contractual basis but in the end, they are believed to be individuals who are self-employed. Freelancers do get paid for their work done for their respective clients. They normally get paid after they had finished the project given to them by their client. This payment normally comes in the form of an invoice which can later be used for tax purposes. The payment terms are decided prior to starting any writings.
