Organisation for the self employed

Posted on July 31, 2015 at 8:57 am

Unfortunately one of the main reasons people tend to leave self-employment is due to lack of organisation. This may be that they are not very good at managing their time, forget to write down appointments for get too easily distracted and are not disciplined enough to use their “work time” productively.

Organisation is the key to ensure that your self-employment has the best chance of working. You will have to keep detailed records of all your accounts and make sure that you have receipts at the ready should you need to show them for a tax investigation.

Not only do you need to organise your accounts but you need to ensure that you have fully understood a project that you need to undertake and have taken down clear and concise notes from the client. If you do not do this, you will find yourself wasting time and possibly having to go back to the client to ask them again.
