We can support you throughout the process of registering for self employment.

Do you really know what it means to be self-employed?

Self-employed means owning your own business rather than working and being paid by an employer. Being self-employed allows you to be independent in your job and chose your own work and hours. It also means you are not paid a regular salary by a business and are responsible for your own work.

There are many benefits to being self-employed including having flexible work hours and choosing your own schedule. It allows more variety in your schedule as you are not on a set routine and are your own boss. 

Being self employed also comes with challenges including registering as self employed with HMRC, arranging paying your taxes and registering for VAT if necessary. urHome understand it can be complicated and timely working out the necessary documents and details. We offer self employment advice and support to help you easily become self employed and ensure you are adhering to the government rules and regulations.
