Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
You can set up a self employed, the procedure is here:
Once so registered HMRC will send you a self assessment tax return form for completion at the conclusion of each tax year [5 April]. If you complete this and send it in before 31 October HMRC will tell you how much Income Tax (IT) and National Insurance (NI) is due and how to pay.
All you have to do then is to maintain books of account to enable you to determine your net income.
It is the third heading in which gives you a link [Registering as Self Employed].
From what you say so far yes.
Well, that is what you will have to do at the conclusion of each tax year.
There is no requirement to trade through a company, that just makes it more complicated. If you do not have a National Insurance (NI) number you will have to get one from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), a long laborious process.
you should register as self employed as soon as possible.
Thank you for your support.
