Hi, I wondered if anyone can assist, current I work part time and thinking about branching out into self employment from home, making candy trees, party bags, cake pops.

How do I go about it in the first instance. I've looked at hmrc site and my head is battered :surfweb:

How does it effect my income from my employment?

You will have to fill in a tax return to declare any earnings from self-employment and pay tax & NI on that income as well.

Your local chamber of commerce may run a free course for people looking at becoming self employed and they can be quite handy as normally an accountant, banker etc will give a talk on all the different aspects. :)
