Making the Switch to Self Employed

Let HMRC know that you are going self-employed

When registering for self employment there is no longer a need to send letters here and there or find multiple copies of important ID to post, you can let HMRC know that you’re going self employed online here. We’d also recommend that you watch HMRC’s free training video to get the best possible guide

Choose a Business Name

Every business owner has had the joy and headache of selecting a business name. It’s crucial that you use Companies House to check if your chosen business name is available. Once you’ve decided you can look into the availability of domain names for your new business website and begin planning your stationary needs etc.

Set-Up your Business Bank Account

Keeping clear and transparent accounts when trading is a must for any business. Blue Box Accountants come across many businesses who haven’t kept a great record of incoming and outgoings and in the end, they end up paying more in tax etc. If you set-up a limited business then setting up a business bank account is a must however, we’d advise sole traders to set-up a business bank account also to keep everything organised and clear for your annual tax return.

Finally, Account for Everything – Hire an Accountant!

It’s important to hire a bookkeeper or accountant to help you account for all of your businesses incomings and outgoings. As a micro-entity or a sole trader most of your time is going to be going on your specialty and your business so the extra stress of bookkeeping is one to avoid.

At Blue Box Accountants we have specialist packages  to suit businesses of all sizes but love to help new businesses and sole traders. By working with Warrington’s friendliest accountants you’ll find accountancy services ranging from just £39 per month that may cover all of your bookkeeping needs.
