View Full Version : Can I register yet?

Just been on the HMRC site to see about registering as self-employed but I'm not sure when to do it. Its says that you can't register until you've actually started workin as self-employed.

However although I haven't started minding and don't start until the middle of August I have accepted a deposit for 1 of my mindees and have recorded this in my accounts. I will also get another deposit tonight and once again will put this through the books.

Should I register now, because I've accepted payment, albeit a deposit or should I wait until August? If I wait until August do I put my start date as when I accepted the deposit or the actual day I started minding?

It's all so confusing and I thought I was a reasonably intelligent person:laughing:

I read somewhere you need to register within 3 months of becoming self employed.

if in doubt ring them they are nice apparently :p

Within 3 months of starting to be self employed is the only answer i have I'm afraid.

I would contact them ...
