  1. Ticking time bomb is spot on. HMRC have already challenged various sectors of the economy, and their "self employed" assertions, including the TV/film industry, agency workers, plumbers and other areas of the construction industry. Their examinations are not likely to stop any time soon so keep it in mind. Stay safe.
  2. Thought you might. Well, you are now aware of what HMRC has in their minds so you are at least forewarned. Good luck with it all. Just make sure you keep some sort of spreadsheet etc for your income and expenses. It's your call how simple or complex your records are. Remember the object of this - you are signing a Tax Return that you can substantiate is as accurate as it can be to "the best of your knowledge and belief".
  3. I see. You appear to be under the associate agreement but everyone here knows that HMRC are reviewing ALL situations where someone claims to be "self employed". Dental practices are part of this review and HMRC have been actively looking into dental agreements for at least the last two years. You must be very, very cautious about the agreement between you and the practice principal.

The manner in which you and the principal wo
  4. bitemarx - one thing that worries me about this is your statement that the person/organisation hiring you has demanded that you work as self employed. You are either self employed or employed. Fact. it's not a "choice". If the manner in which you work indicates that you are employed then that is what you are.

You ought to seek proper professional advice from a chartered tax advisor (CTA). Not someone who tells you to "come back later". What tax advisor

  6. Not December. It's 31st October if you file on paper. No. You would be wise to get some professional advice to set you on the right track even if you do things yourself later on. Maybe.

  7. You simply start work and keep records of the income and expenses of your new self employment. You are required to tell the taxman that you have started. This will tell you what to do ..... http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/selfemployed/register-selfemp.htm At the end of each tax year (5th April) you will be required to file a Tax Return giving details of your income, expenses and self employment profits and any other tax related income & gains.
