You need to let HMRC know when you become self-employed. It can be a bit confusing doing it yourself, but we can register for you for just £25. Once registered, HMRC will send you a UTR number, or Unique Taxpayer Registration number, in the post. Sleep easy and leave it with us.
Being self-employed is hard enough. We help make taxes a bit easier. You can sort this yourself for free on HMRC, or you can take advantage of TaxScouts to do it for you.

Did you know that there are a number of things that your TaxScouts accountant can help you expense on your tax return?
Your UTR number is a Unique Taxpayer Reference that you get when you register for Self Assessment.
It consists of 10 digits (sometimes with a letter K at the end) and is issued to you by HMRC.
Check out our guide to getting a UTR.
Most people do not need to file a Self Assessment because they are taxed at source. But there are a few reasons you may need to complete a tax return:
If you’re self-employed, you can get up to £1,000 each tax year as a tax-free allowance. This is called the Trading Allowance.
Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to claim different expenses back on your Self Assessment.
If you’re self-employed you can claim expenses individually (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Trading Allowance.
If you’re a landlord, you can claim certain replacement items, renovations and if you live in the property (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Property Income Allowance.
Other general allowances can be found here for investors, high-earners and other taxpayers.
