    Default Self-employed and a secondee?

    Hi

    I've just recieved my contract for a role in Europe, i've been hired by an engineering firm in Denmark to work at the EU. The contract says i am seconded by the client (the enginnering firm) to work at the EU but it also states that i am not employed by the client and that should be treated as self-employed.

    Forgive my legal ignorance but how can i be seconded from a company that i am not employed by?

    Basically the client are having issues with me working via an umbrella company as they don't want an agreement with a 3rd party whereas i'd prefer the umbrella option as its more efficient and less hassle than setting up as self employed here in luxebourg

    Cheers

    You should get the contract checked out for legal terminology but basically they want you to be a subcontractor.
