Billing service for creative professionals

and for people who employ them


Kanslia, founded in 2006, is the first cooperative in Finland to offer billing services for independent contractors.

We serve creative professionals who work independently by taking care of their billing, acting as their employer and paying their wages. As our client you’re free to focus on what you do best. Your time won’t be consumed by the drudgery of financial paper work in running your own business.

Also, for those who have work to offer, we may be able to lend a hand. We make it easy for people or businesses to hire individuals or groups for short­term projects. You as an employer pay one single bill; we pay your workers wages and provide all employer contributions. Kanslia’s expertise lies in the creative industry, we have specific knowhow and experience of this field. The majority of our customers are creative professionals.

Our commission varies between 3 and 7 %. We’re a non-profit organization that supports community art in the form of yearly grants.

This is how it works

You send us your invoice information, we charge your client and pay your wages to your bank account. We take care of tax payments and the relevant insurance contributions. Your role towards your client is no different from that of a business owner. To us, you are an employee and we’re here for you.
