View Full Version : Freelance web based programming work

10-11-2005, 06:25 PM
I currently work as a programmer for a medium sized company, and what I would like to do is start taking on freelance work on the side. Initially I intend to just test the water but I'm unsure about how to go about this.

Would this be as simple as registering as a sole trader and as self employed?

How would I tackle tax? Would I just stop paying by PAYE entirely for my employment, and then include my wage in with any earnings from my own projects? then submit a tax return at the end of the year?

There seems like there's loads to take into account just in order to take on extra small projects out of work. Im confused.
