Self-Employed Tax Bootcamp

A 60 minute video course with cheatsheets and calculators for you to keep to give you clarity on what you need to do, how and when on the tax side of things in your online business or side hustle


You’ve always been given a payslip with everything worked out for you but now you’ve decided to become self-employed it’s up to you to work out what you need to tell the tax man. 

The HMRC website isn’t much help and even though you know you should probably let them know you have paying customers, you can’t quite figure out how to do that.

Wouldn’t it be great if you knew exactly what you needed to do, when and how?

You Don't Actually Want to Hire an Accountant

You don’t need the extra cost. Plus it would be nice to learn how to handle taxes yourself so you know how much to set aside for the tax man each time you get paid and gain the confidence to DIY your tax return.


🤷🏽‍♀️ You’ve been googling self-employment tax, but this has only thrown up more confusion

📖 You’d like to get up to speed on the rules that affect you quickly so you can get back to the areas of the business that generate income

😩 The thought of tax just makes your stomach churn

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone who knows their tax stuff would explain to you, in simple terms:

💷 How to anticipate how much money you’ll owe the tax-man

🧾 The types of tax you’ll need to pay HMRC

📆 Which tax dates you need to put in your diary

Well, that’s where I come in.

👋🏽 I’m Anita and I’ve put together this 60-minute training course on UK self-employment taxes to help put you in control of the money in your business.

In my 10 years + as a Chartered Accountant I’ve worked alongside small business owners filling in tax forms, preparing accounts and dealing with HMRC.

But one of the most important aspects of my job was to answer questions from business owners to help them understand what they need to pay HMRC, when and why.

I’ve taken all those tax questions, unjumbled them and put them into a short course to help other sole traders and side hustlers understand the key tax terms and concepts that affect them.

Self-employment taxes explained with short simple pre-recorded videos.

Helping you to overcome that overwhelmed feeling when it comes to tax so you can focus on what you do best, building your business.
