I have questions in regards to an independent contractor or statutory employee.
I have a new business I am starting which consists of selling marketing. I will be the only employee, using my sales skills to sell to other companies to improve their marketing.
I have an opportunity to work for a specific company as a contractor who does the same thing. I would act as a salesperson for their company to sell to companies to improve their marketing (this would be for contracts of a specific nature that are a part of their core business)
Here are the details: I would decide when I am selling for them, with no set hours. I will work from my own office space; provide all of my own equipment (phone, laptop, I-pad, vehicle, etc.) I can sell to companies on my own for myself. I will be compensated by a contract stating payment for completed sales to be paid by a percentage of sales based on margin. I may also have the opportunity to collect an upfront fee and a monthly fee regardless of a sale. These fees would be a charge to help me offset my expenses. I'm not sure how to structure them - xx dollars for a minimum 20 hour week, showing I performed some type of outreach, or just a fee for my time and services with no set expectations.
Any thoughts on if this should be an independent contractor or statutory employee? Any thoughts on how to set fees?
