Self-employment and freelancing

Self-employment is when an individual: 
  • works for themselves instead of (or alongside) working for an employer that pays a salary or a wage through the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) PAYE online service
  • is responsible for paying their own taxes and national insurance contributions.
