During the afternoon session, you will receive practical guidance on how to register as self-employed or as a limited company and to fill out a tax return.

  • The stage at which HMRC needs to be notified
  • Whether it is better to engage a tax agent or not

  • Expenses particular to yoga teachers such as ongoing training, travel in the UK and abroad, workshops run by teachers, the use of home for work, and yoga clothing
  • Expenses incurred prior to becoming self-employed
  • Expenses paid in cash
  • Income received in cash

In addition, we will look at how best to keep good accounting records using a sample scenario on Excel.
