One thing you may end up doing your own accounting and taxes. If you, like me, too have learned this in school or university. And it’s not that hard if you’re willing to spend 80€/hour of a professional. Basically if you can do it at a quarter of her speed, you’re still making 20€/hour. By not spending it.
