It is also possible to receive clients at your home. Working from home is illegal in Utrecht, but it is allowed in some other municipalities in The Netherlands (contact your local municipality for more information). The advantage of working from your home is that you don’t need to hire a workspace. The disadvantage is allowing the clients access to a part of your private life. If you’re working from home, an aggressive or otherwise difficult client knows where you live, which can be unsafe. To increase your safety while working from home, make sure someone else is in the house. They can help you, in case of urgency.
There are certain rules regarding working from home. If you’re renting from a housing association, you are not allowed to work from your home, or to advertise your services. If you have any questions, please contact your municipality. You can also contact Belle if you need some assistance with this.
