Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Have a Sim who is a Freelancer, take a gig via cellphone or computer. 2. Speak with Client via computer 3. Create Object. 4. Send for clients approval 5. Wait for "send your finished work to client" to complete. 6. Then it sits there forever more.
What happens when the bug occurs? It completes after I send the item to the Client, but I don't get paid, the job doesn't go away and cannot move forward to the next one. Just sits there as completed
What do you expect to see? After I send the finished work my expectation would be to get Paid. Then have the Gig disappear so I can choose a new one. With the Gig Stuck I cannot go on vacation as it claims I am in the middle of a job. The only work around is to cancel the Gig. Once the gig is cancelled you loose the money you were owed and performance for taking a Gig and then cancelling it
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

I do have Mods but removed every single mod and tried again and it is still the same outcome - The Gig will complete but I will not get paid
I have ensure that all jobs have been done on time, that all items have been submitted as seen in the screen shot
I have dumped jobs and tried other ones,. This happens for both Candles and fabricated items

I'm having the exact same issue! Didn't have this problem before, I had a sim doing freelance art and it worked fine, but now I have a freelance writer and it won't let me have her do work. I can chat with the client, I can write the book, I can approve the book. The tasks come up as done in the work tab. I get a notification saying "Approved! This is exactly what we're looking for. Keep up the great work Vee." But I never get payed for it and not even the deadline ends the gig. And then I cancel the gig and it brings down her work performance! Very frustrating.
I am having the same issue! I have all packs, except Bantuu and gigs won't complete! They used to work just fine, but it's been a few months since I've played. Getting frustrated.
EA Is aware of the issue and are working on it. I'd just use the mod that fixes it as a temporary fix until it's officially fixed.
I would just let the Sims work for themselves until Freelancing gets fixed. My writers normally earn 5,000 to 10,000 per day in royalties by the time they reach skill level 10. My artists are selling their paintings for several hundred to several thousand by level 10. I'm not sure how much Sims make as Freelancers but I suspect it's usually less money for more effort.
I see this issue has existed for a while, however it's only occured for me over the past few days. Specifically since I downloaded "the Sims 4 get together pack". I'm not sure if this feedback holds any real relevance to the issue but it is certainly a real coincidence if not.
Figured I'd just drop this info here in case it's of any help.
I'm having the same problem it's my first time playing freelance photography career and I get a gig follow all the steps and nothing happens. The due date passes and I don't get paid. It just stays put like I'm trying to complete the task.
I have same issue occurred after finishing writer work as freelancer.
Message notice about finished in the pop up screen, but no payment and actual work did not completed.
Only cancel the work is possible even though my sim completed work.
