hi roxanne one of the first things to get is liability insurance this is to cover yourself more than anything when i started self employed i went to salon gold there phone number is 020 8655 0444 and i think i paid about 80 for the year your could try other places but thats the one i used.
you also need to register self employed with the inland revenue the best way is to right a letter and wait for there response.
for your accounts thats up to you keep all recipts that you spend on things towards the business when i started i used a simplex d account book and i filled that in every day and that helped with ma tax return at the end of the financial year you can either do your tax return yourself or get an accountant but they can be expensive and it all depends on how much money you make.
it isnt that easy to begin with but once you get used to it and you build up a clientel it will b worth it i started out just over 2 years ago but have stoped now but to have my baby but its good cause its something you can go back to and i have good clients

if you want any other advise give me a message and i will try and help if i can hope all goes well

hi, you dont have topay national insurace - but i do its about 10 a month. you need public liability insurance also about 10 a month . you need to register as self employed tax wont be a problem unless you earn more than 5000 , then i think its 10% until you hit 10,000 . just keep a record of what goes in and out try visiting business link website its really good and they have free courses .

My advice would be to get a website.

There are lots of companies that can help.

If you live in the Midlands, I would recommend http://www.essentialmarketer.com.
