Freelancers from Pakistan are the virtual expatriates earning valuable foreign exchange for the country and deserve to be supported and nurtured to achieve their true potential. Pakistan is ranked 3rd in the world in terms of number of freelancers registered on popular online freelance markets. However, the number of freelancers earning decent livelihood by freelancing is low. Many factors contribute to not being able to capitalize on your skills/expertise. For instance, your profile on the freelance market may not be properly reflecting your skills/expertise, or you may be bidding for the wrong projects that do not match your skill set, or your proposals do not focus on the customer's needs and highlight your suitability for the job at hand.
It is important that freelancers report their foreign earnings as exports by informing their bank/agent the type/code of their earning. The six codes assigned by the State Bank of Pakistan for IT exports and their description is available at http://pseb.org.pk/pseb-programs/facilitaion-registration/reporting-of-it-exports
