Apibank has launched the My Self-Employed platform, which helps to automate the interaction of small and medium-sized businesses with contractors, regardless of the bank where they are served.
The platform will allow a client to check whether the contractor has “self-employed status before concluding a contract and each payment, registers his professional income, monitors the available limit, receives and stores closing documents (receipts)”. The «self-employed» legal status of freelance workers was imposed in Russia in 2017.
According to Nadezhda Avdanina, the Executive Director of the digital platform Apibank, the decision also “automates the interaction of the parties with the Federal Tax Service”.
In addition, customers can issue virtual bank cards for those with whom they work. Transfer of funds is possible both from a single aggregated account and from the company's own bank account.
