Sorry for the English topic, but my Dutch level is not that high to make it understandable.
So I have a ZZP for few years in Netherlands and recently I got some offers from few clients in a non-SEPA country. Thus, the bank transfers are quite expensive (20+ euros).
I've done some research, and I found out that TransferWise is a good solution for me. The problem is that my clients are quite old, thus they do not have any idea how to use this kind of platform.
So my questions are:
1. If a friend of mine from their city collects the money (cash) from them, then transfers them to my business account in Netherlands is all right?
(the strange thing is that the invoice will be written on the name of the client, but the payment will be received from another person)
2. If I will receive the money by bank transfer, should I give a receipt (kwitantie) besides the invoice? Basically the client gives cash to my friend, but I will receive the money in my bank account, which is a bit confusing to me.
I want to do it legally, so I do not want to accept these offers until everything is clear to me.
