Self-employed have increased their incomes in the pandemic by almost 11 times

The income of the self-employed in Russia increased 10,6 times during the pandemic. The number of those working in this mode has increased 6,4 times.

This is reported "Vedomosti" with reference to the research results of the service "YuKassa". According to the Federal Tax Service of Russia, in 2020, 1,5 million self-employed are registered in Russia. Most of all, the revenue of the self-employed working in the segment of online sales of clothing and footwear increased by 38 times. Video and music providers increased their revenues by 20 times. Self-employed in the field of educational services increased their incomes 11 times.

The average check grew the most for those who provide advertising and promotion services on the Internet: it increased more than 3 times compared to 2019 and amounted to 805 rubles.

According to Oksana Korobkina, Commercial Director of YuMoney, since the beginning of last year, the self-employed market has begun to grow significantly, and today this trend continues: in the first two weeks of 2021, there is an increase in the turnover and the number of payments among self-employed - about ten times compared to this the same period last year.

According to experts, state support has become one of the factors in increasing sales turnover. The growth of self-employed operations through online platforms also increased due to the pandemic: people were isolated for a long time and often turned to various Internet services. Experts agree that the growth in the number of self-employed will continue this year.
