Hi there, currently employed doing the above, for those of you self employed,

do you get the client to order and supply their own hair, and do a fitting service only..

just wondering the approach I can take if going self employed route

Hi, you can get all the info re: Starting up on (. Gov website) you only need to worry about VAT if your expected turnover is over £85,000!. Set up can be as Sole Trader if on your own and complete Self Assessment each year. Hth.

My daughter does a consultation and colour match, her client pays for the hair, my daughter orders it from her supplier (Beauty Works) and then charges for the fitting on the day

so does she take full amount, I presume your daughter orders it on her card?

just I know people will want me to order hair as will get discount, but then technically that will put me over vat threshold which I want to avoid as I would soon reach my turnover just trying to find best option, seems like being employed is soo much easier
