Do I need to be self-employed?

As MyShowcase Stylist you are an independent agent; the owner of a business.

In the UK, the tax regulations stipulate self-employed registration by everyone who starts their own business. This should be done within 3 months of the start date, and a £100 penalty can be applied for failure to do so.

Registering yourself as self-employed is really easy, just go to the HMRC website ( If you have any questions call them for advice during business hours on 0845 915 915 - they are really helpful and friendly.
