We answer your questions

Everything related to your professional activity is eligible for business expenses refund. Equipment such as computers, printers, mileage allowances, software, transportation costs, client lunches or dinners… In view of the current health crisis, you are also entitled to teleworking expenses, which will be based on your rent if you are a tenant, or the gross rental value of your home if you own it.

STA Portage is a true « portage salarial » company, which means it adheres to the « convention du portage salarial » (visible on all STA Portage payslips). As a result, we are obliged to take out a financial guarantee with AXA, so your money is totally protected.

What’s more, STA Portage is a subsidiary of STA Groupe, a holding company with share capital in excess of millions of euros.

There is no minimum or maximum notice period at STA Portage. Only 1 month’s notice is required for employees who have been with STA Portage for more than 8 months (and who have therefore completed their trial period) to prepare for the contractual termination.

Yes, you can benefit from portage in addition to another employment contract or other self-employed status (AE, SASU, etc.).

It is simple! Everything is done electronically, after filling in the link we’ll send you. We’ll then contact your client to sign a service contract, and send you an employee contract. The fact that we’ve digitized this process will save you time, flexibility and responsiveness.

3 types of profession are not eligible for freelance administration: regulated professions, personal services (individuals) and product sales. Apart from these, any profession is eligible for freelance administration.

In freelance administration, employees have the status of salaried workers, so they accumulate paid leave. However, as the days are not billed to the client, they are counted as unpaid absence. Leave is therefore paid out every month at a rate of 10% of gross salary.

For consultants who have been with STA Portage on a permanent contract for more than 8 months (the trial period is therefore over), 1 month’s notice is required in order to prepare for the contractual termination. If the permanent contract is not validated, a simple end to the trial period effective immediately is sufficient, so there is no notice period to respect before leaving STA Portage.

Like all employees in France, withholding tax is paid directly on your payslip, so you don’t have to do anything extra to pay your taxes.

But you need to submit your annual tax report to the tax administration.

You don’t need a status to sign up, because STA Portage is there to offer you a status – that of a ported employee – which enables you to carry out an assignment as a self-employed person.

Yes, STA Portage has been awarded the « Zero Hidden Costs » label every year since the label was created.

Yes, STA Portage includes a salary advance in its unique 5% offer. Don’t worry about your salary, you’ll receive it every 05th of the month regardless of your client’s payment.

You can leave whenever you want to, whether you have a fixed term or a permanent contract without any fees.
