There are 2 common misconceptions that come with employing staff for your business: 1) A self-employed person can’t employ staff and 2) it’s really difficult to set up.
Well today’s blog is going to dispel these misconceptions because both of those notions are untrue! As long as you are registered with the HMRC as self-employed then you are a ‘business’ which can employ staff, and secondly it’s a very simple process to register your business to actually employ staff – so here goes.
To register your business to employ staff you simply need to visit this link, fill in all your business details and register – https://www.gov.uk/register-employer – that’s it! Honestly it’s that simple!
Once the HMRC have assessed and approved your application then you will be sent out your PAYE Reference Number which you will use for all future dealings with employment and the HMRC.
So there you have it, one simple step to start employing staff.
