The Benefits of Freelancing

People usually turn to freelancing because of all the benefits self-employment has over full-time employment:

  • You get to do something you love doing, and something which you are really good at.
  • You get the freedom that comes with being your own boss.
  • You get to work with the businesses and individuals you want to work with, and when you want to work.
  • You get more take-home pay.

Freelancing comes at a cost – Accounting

There are a few downsides to self-employment. The biggest one being accounting. When you work full-time for an employer, you don’t have to worry about paying tax, because it is automatically sorted out for you in the form of PAYE.

Accounting – doing it yourself

As a freelancer, you have to keep extensive financial records, which then form the basis of your Self-Assessment Tax Return, which you have to send after the end of each tax year (5th April).
