Starting your own business – HMRC e-Learning


What does it do?

The guide is in four sections to help you:

  • Choose a structure for your business
  • Tell HMRC about your self-employment
  • Keep your business records and claim expenses
  • Send HMRC your tax returns and payments
What will the benefits be for me?
We're going to tell you how to:

• Get to grips with the taxes for your business
• Let HMRC know you're self-employed
• keep records and claim expenses
• Plan for your tax returns and payments

We'll tell you what you need to know and do to get your tax right first time, every time.
How do I access the service?

Most new businesses can use a simple one-step online registration process and set up an online HMRC account at the same time.

You can also appoint someone to register and deal with HMRC for you. This could be an accountant, a relative or a friend. You’ll still be legally responsible for your own tax.
