      I know what you mean....tax is taxing. However if you do it online it is so much easier. Even I managed it.

          It is easy if you know what your doing Find the section for the self employed. You only have to fill out a few pages. If your realy stuck find a locl one day course there free. Or use the help line.

            oh noooooooooo. I have to go through all this and no matter how times I've read about it, its still mind boggling!

            I'm okay on the national insurance stamp, that bit is easy and I am keeping my records up to date but where do I go from here? Do I really have to wait a whole year before I can pay any tax or is there a way I can pay it bit by bit????

              My first thought last year when I got mine was "holy S***!!! I'm never going to manage this!" but guess what? I did manage and it only took a few hours, and I suck at maths!

              I've said this before and I'll say it again. The form isn't as bad as you think it is. I know a lot of you will be feeling a bit stressed over it as it's your first time and it does seem really scary, but once you sit down and go over it slowly it's not that bad. The guide is actually quite helpful and the tax people that you can phone when you are stuck are really good too.

              Remember that if you've made less that £15,000 self employed, you can do the shortened version of the self emplyed form, which will make it even easier. Also, there's plenty of people on here who are happy to help if they can.

                I had another look at it last night and saw there was an actual section for self employed, so I take it thats the only bit I need to fill in?!!?

                If theres a shorter version that would be fab!!I definately havnt made anything like £15,000.

                Thanks guys, I reckon each time i look at it itl get less and less scary, well in theory anyway.

                  I've not received mine yet - But I will be the same! I'm going to have to get my SIL to explain it all to me.

                  I will also have a look at the online one, but knowing my luck I would go to press enter details and my laptop will crash!

                    So there is no way I can pay my taxes in lumps here and there? If so, do they send me a form when the time is right or is that up to me?

                    Also, if I do it myself online, when does this need to be done?

                    Sorry for asking so many questions but I dont want to end up totally . I am trying to find somewhere local to go and talk to somebody in business link but the nearest one to me is in Birmingham.

                      I believe on paper its due the end of October and online is the end of January.All that kind of info is written on the package the form comes in.

                        Hmmm. I wonder why I've not been sent a form for tax, yet I have for national insurance stamp.

                        Will have to investigate that.

                        thanks.

                          When I filled mine out, I'd lost my figures (they're stuck on my old computer) & I couldn't find the printout that I'd done.
                          It must have taken me all of 20mins to fill it out (I was rushing coz I wanted to get it in the post) it was a real slap-dash affair. I put a note of apology, saying I hadn't got a clue how to fill it out plus I'd couldn't access my figures & said basically I think income was roughly X & my outgoings were approx Y & that I knew I'd definitely made a loss ~ I couldn't believe it when they accepted it!!!!!!

                            Wow I bet that really shocked you!

                            Dont the tax dudes hold workshoppy type things you can attend? I've never been to one but I did see a taxman presentation a few weeks ago and I'm sure he mentioned workshops that might be helpful when you're completing things for the first time

                              I received my pack and forms yesterday and was looking at the Self-Employment (Full) forms. I was wondering... how much simpler are the Short ones for small 'simple' businesses? I earn nowhere near the amount to justify doing the full form. I'll definitely do the form online as I'm sure I'll find that easier.
