Hey all, So I'm looking for a little advice. I have just moved to the Netherlands with my wife. We are both registered and are legally allowed to work here.My wife and I work as photographers together, but my wife also work's as a model. Here is my question:-Is it necessary for both of us to register as freelancers, or can we register our business together as one entity. When my wife is modelling she is paid through a modelling agency that would normally deduct tax. Are there benefits of us both being registered as freelancers, or should only one of us be registered? I hope this makes sense :-SAny help appreciated guys...

Anyone know the situation regarding separated (unmarried) parents and the support of a child in Netherlands? My sister is being bumped by (unemployed and penniless) ex-partner into legal action because he thinks if he has more custody of their 7-year-old he can claim maintenance from my sister. She is a teacher solely responsible for two other children now in their early 20s (her responsibility for last 7 years) trying to complete a Masters as well as her day-job. I am very worried about the effect of this additional stress on her.  How can he even think he has a right? He has no job, has not paid a penny towards the child's support. So why is he forcing this issue? Where can she turn for help without being railroaded into having legal fees? Thanks for reading.

Hi, my son will start university in the UK soon and I will need to transfer money from here to the UK approx three times a year. I wanted to know if anyone has used companies to transfer money (for example smart currency). They seem to offer better rates than the banks but are they safe. Any advice welcome - especially from people who have actually used them
