Does anyone have any expert advice on going self employed. Literally anything, hoping to know as much as possible so there's no nasty surprises when I do begin on my own

Thanks guys. Leah xx

I have had my own business for 2 years now, social media has been a big one for me, posting deals in local selling pages helps too, i started mobile, then from home and now I have a shop and staff, started with £30 in my pocket! X

It's hard graft.
You'll have to notify the HMRC, change you car insurance to business IF you're going mobile , liability insurance , keep EVERY receipt business related, even work clothing, petrol (but only if mobile, can't claim petrol for a static location) stock - the lot

Get an accounts book, they're only a few quid, write all your incomings and outgoings

Flyers and business cards at the ready and go door posting

Good luck

Yes you can for those Tori, yes.
But not driving from home to a salon and back again.
If mobile, you can claim from the minute to drive from your house to a clients house and every house you visit.
