Their “Easy” Guide to Self-Employment
When registering as self-employed for the first time, there are some important things you need to do. At Easy Return they are here to help and guide you through the process.
As a professional firm of accountants helping self-employed individuals since 1988 they know what needs to be done and when, to ensure complete peace of mind.
Registering with HMRC
The first and most important step is to advise HMRC that you are self-employed for tax purposes and register with them. If you have ever been self-employed before in any other job you will not need to re-register as your old tax reference number (UTR) still works.
Registering with HMRC can be done in one of two ways:
- Calling HMRC on 0300 200 3504 to register as self-employed
- Apply online by clicking this link
If you are having trouble registering with HMRC then the best option would be to give
Easy Return a call on 0208 452 4286 and ask one of our Tax Advisers to help you.
