Life as a Freelancer: Managing your Finances as a Freelancer

When you’re in business, it’s vital to stay on top of your finances and keep your books in order, but this can often be very confusing and stressful especially when you only have yourself to rely on. This workshop will walk you through taxation and self-assessment and also look at setting rates and getting paid.


It’s no secret that the UK’s army of freelancers, contractors and self-employed professionals is growing as the nature of work changes. The number of self-employed people is increasing year-on-year in the UK. The platform PeoplePerHour recently predicted that half of the UK's workforce will be freelancing by 2020 and UAL has seen a marked increase in the number of graduates (across all disciplines) identifying as self-employed.


LCFs Student Enterprise team works with LCF students and alumni to start and grow their businesses whilst at college and beyond graduation. The team is supporting this years Graduate Futures Week by programming a day of events inspired by the theme The Art of Freelancing.


This session will be delivered by Tom Purvis, Economic and Political  Adviser for IPSE, The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed.
