Guidance on Self Employment and Tax
HMRC has developed an e-learning course which guides childminders through everything they need to know about being self-employed, including Self Assessment, Income Tax, National Insurance, business records and expenses. You can work through the course at your own pace and at a time that suits you best. You don't need to do it all in one go, you can dip in and out as often as you like.
