Have you got the entrepreneurial itch? Studies show that since 2011, more and more Scots are opting into self-employment. With a strong increase in new businesses and sole traders, you need to know how to be a cut above the rest.
Self-employment can be a difficult challenge, forfeiting benefits that most take for granted: Sick pay, holiday entitlement and a company pension. However, with lower taxable rates, single tier pension options, alongside managing your own work load there are definite benefits to the decision.
Are you newly self-employed? Don’t forget to:
• Contact the HRMC and let them know about any changes.
• Keep accurate financial records to ease self-assessment – that way you’ll be able to spend more time running your business, and less time number crunching!
• Ensure your personal and business accounts are separate for ease of access to each.
