“No worries Rebecca, I completely understand (my little one starts nursery at the end of the month - my gosh they know how to charge!) and it sounds like you have a good plan in place.
Yes, childcare is not cheap! My childminder is like my son's second mother though, I am lucky to have her. My daughter didn't start nursery until she was 3 so it was funded. I hope it goes well for your little one <3
Thanks Simon, I appreciate the input. I very nearly signed up with a web designer who trains you to do your own but I just don't have time at the moment! I will budget some money for it next year, I am still on the first page of Google for Proofreader in Coventry without a website, so it is not a desperate situation. It will be my first full tax year working increased hours and really pushing things next year so I hope to look into it more then, and the following year I will have even more time. Currently paying for childcare for my son so I have to prioritise the work not the actual business. If that makes sense.
“You should take the opportunity, you will learn more about your skills, it will also help you to increase confidence and mind level. Self-employed is more secure.
More secure than what? It is usually less secure than a standard employed job with set hours and wage. Especially if you contract is zero hours or you have no contract at all.
Basically if you are self employed you will be responsible for paying your own tax and national insurance. You need to register with HMRC as Andy says. You will have to keep track of all your income and expenses so you can complete a tax return at the end of each tax year. Depending on who is offering the work it may or may not have any guaranteed hours so be careful if you are swapping from a full-time job into one with an unreliable income. Basically, you won't get holiday pay, sick pay, pension etc so you need to make sure you are being paid a more lucrative rate than if you were in an employed position doing the same work. It is not all doom and gloom and I work for myself so am self employed and I love it, it is flexible, my income is mine to keep and I can do things my way, it does depend on your situation though and it is often very hard work.
“ Oh my god I'm turning into a leftie ”
Finally, I am grinding you down....hahaha
Disgraceful!! And I'm glad they were fined too. I go for the lesser known brand phones and use Android. You don't need an overly expensive phone to have a decent one these days!
Good! I'm glad people are showing solidarity and walking out. I remember being subject so some dreadful treatment as a waitress by my managers in several workplaces when I was only very young. It's just depressing that it all still goes on. I really hope things continue to change in the right direction.
For once you and I totally agree Steve!
Welcome to the forum. I do some part time cat sitting and it's a relaxing job to do, animals are not bad clients to have!
Thank you for your reply, business is building slowly, however always open to new challenges.
Slow and steady wins the race, controlled growth is much better in the long run.
Hello and welcome to the forum. It's a cool name, but you should be careful that you're spelling it correctly or it will undermine your branding.
