The Freelancer’s Guide to Self Assessment

Freelancer's Guide to Self Assessment.

If you are an employee you pay tax and National insurance automatically via Pay as You Earn (PAYE). However, if you’re a freelancer or self employed you probably aren’t part of a PAYE scheme, so each year you’ll have to fill out a self assessment form either in paper form or online.

Self assessment is commonly met with tuts, groans, winces and every other form of “nope” you can imagine. But here at KashFlow, we’re greeting it with open arms – because we’ve got accounting software that makes the whole process quick and painless.

So whether this is your first Self-Assessment, or you’re sick to death of doing the same old thing every year, read on for a complete guide to everything you need to be doing, and when.

The Freelancer’s Guide to Self Assessment is full of useful info to help you fill in your tax return properly and get it filed with HM Revenue & Customs on time so you avoid penalties.
