Self-Employment Support Services

Self-employment support is the most popular service requested. We assist self-employed people with their HMRC responsibilities. We prepare Self Assessment Returns, submit returns, and assist clients to pay their bills online for NIC (National Insurance Contributions - Class 2 & Class 4) and tax. We also offer advice, advocacy, and technical support services to assist people to maintain their self-employment.

We assist hairdressers, barbers, dog groomers, cleaners, plumbers, electricians, taxi drivers and others working in a variety of trades to maintain their self-employment.

We assist people on Working Benefits, like Working Tax Credits, Universal Credit, Housing Benefit, Carers Allowance and other working benefits, to complete additional forms linked to their self-employment.

We prepare and submit SA Returns for people working in the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). We help people identify their allowable expenses and complete a return.

Along with self-employment support services our package offers taxi drivers support with their online licensing responsibilities. We assist taxi drivers with Taxi Driver’s License (TDL), Taxi Vehicle License (TVL) and Taxi Operator License (TOL). This can be a separate service if SA Returns are completed elsewhere.

We have a bespoke training course to assist people to become taxi drivers. Clients receive materials and support to pass the taxi theory test. Taxi driving lessons prepare clients for the taxi driving test. Then clients are assisted with online processes.

We also deliver Taxi Driver Periodic Training (TDPT) commonly called Taxi CPC. We deliver classroom based and online training. We are accredited and audited by JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training).

Our office is in The Rath Mor Centre (upstairs) which has been our home for over 20 years and we continue to operate from there. We have helped over 500 people to access self-employment through projects aimed at developing and sustaining local jobs. We use a holistic approach that offers advice, help, support, and technical assistance to develop and sustain self-employment, social economy enterprises and local services.
