Hi geeks
Hoping for some help.
I am coming up to finishing my maternity and on a mural arrangement will not be going back to my old salon.
So I want to know how I go about being self employed becoming a mobile hairdresser?
I am a complete newbie and would appreciate the help

1. Your tax requirements and how to keep records (don't register until you are up and running as you have 3 months from your start date to do so) https://www.gov.uk/set-up-sole-trader
2. Set up your record keeping for the above, so either paper based (an A4 folder is fine) or in a spreadsheet.
3. Write out what you need to do your actual work, so all equipment needed, how you will clean it, how you will get to clients, how you will advertise, insurance needed, assessment of how much everything this will cost and what you will charge, etc.
4. Check your local council website to see if you need to be registered. Probably not if you're mobile but always check first.


It really doesn't take too long, a day at most.
