Hello everyone - tech freelance just getting started
« on: September 11, 2012, 02:43:18 PM »
Hi everyone,

It's my first day as a freelance today - eeek! I'm just about to register as self-employed. Is it worth going to one of HMRC's tax classes?

Thanks!

Hi Kate,

Good luck with going freelance. I went to a couple of HMRC sessions after I went freelance a few years back now.

I found them helpful in the main, they certainly took some of the mystery out of self-assessment. So I would say go along if you've got the time. Their free aren't they? So you don't have much to lose.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your reply. They called me to say they do webinars now, which is very exciting and saves having to take time out for travel.

Best,

Kate
