Self-employed is a form of sole entrepreneurship in Great Britain, which can be established by everyone. The person is required to register online at HM Revenue & Customs and apply to the Department of Labour and Pensions for a social security number (in the case of the construction industry, you also need to obtain a temporary and later permanent CIS-4 card – Constructions Industry Scheme). The basic feature of this type of company is that you are liable for its debts with your own assets.
Settlement of tax and self-employed
Self-employed settlement is actually only an annual tax settlement that is tax return. Self-employed persons in the UK pay taxes in the Self-Assessment system which allows you to complete a Tax Return both online and in a traditional paper form. Thanks to this, it is possible to determine how much income tax and insurance premiums are payable. To register with this system, you must have an insurance number, provide all personal and company details, and a 10-digit UTR number (Unique Taxpayer Reference number). The employed person is subject to personal income tax and is obliged to keep separate financial documentation.
This form of running your own business is very popular in the UK, because it is by far the easiest way to have your own company in the UK, and to make your tax settlements.
