Having held more than 100 consultations and a series of conferences on the Independence Test over the past three years, Clever came up with the idea of digitizing the whole process.

We have developed a simple set of questions based on our extensive experience to help entrepreneurs determine whether they will pass the Independence Test or not. 

It was also the beginning of the creation of a Digital Test of Independence, which is based on carefully selected questions and methodology, and allows a reliable assessment of the Entrepreneur-Principal relationship.

A Digital Independence Test was conducted in accordance with Article 85, Paragraph 1, Item 17 of the Law on Personal Income Tax. This article defines the independence test criteria and prescribes instructions regarding their interpretation.

In spite of extensive instructions, the independence test raised serious doubts because of the possibility of an ambiguous interpretation of the criteria. In practice, entrepreneurs receive opposite interpretations of the criteria, which is why business is uncertain in practice because the instructions cannot cover all individual and specific cases.

In order to promote a stable and safe ecosystem for entrepreneurs, the Digital Independence Test aims to remove that uncertainty. Entrepreneurs who complete the form of the Digital Independence Test receive a final report describing their relationship with the Client based on their answers and the criteria of the independence test as interpreted by the test. For each Principal, an individual test must be conducted.

In addition to being written in simple language, the questions and the final report are also easy to follow. We also gain an opportunity to educate entrepreneurs about the way to interpret and apply the criteria.

We would like to thank all the participants, advisors, and consultants who contributed to the automation of the independence test over a period of three years.

We do not collect, store, or process your personal data when you complete the Digital Independence Test. Aggregated anonymous data may only be used for statistical and analytical purposes by the author of the application.
