Only a third of the self-employed in Russia regularly save money and have savings. Half spend all their income on groceries and household needs.

It is reported TASS with reference to the research of the online service YouDo.com and VSK Insurance House. Only 15% of those surveyed do not pay attention to their expenses. Slightly less than half of the self-employed reported that they combine freelancing with their main job, the rest work only for themselves. 7% of respondents want to return to hired work.

Half of the part-time workers admitted that for them part-time work is a forced measure, since additional income is needed, and a third work part-time for the sake of additional personal development.

The most popular areas of freelancing in Russia are construction and real estate, sales, manufacturing and agriculture, as well as education and IT. The self-employed note that the main advantage of their activity is a free schedule and the absence of bosses, and the disadvantages are the need to look for clients on their own and the absence of a social package.

Earlier, Vladimir Putin suggested return to self-employed citizens in full their income tax paid in 2019. The president also intends to provide all self-employed with "tax capital" in the amount of one minimum wage. Thanks to it, they will be able to make tax payments this year, while preserving their income.
