    Yes, I direct my clients to pay tuition fees into my current account and raise an invoice for each lesson as well as keeping all receipts for deductible items. For each tax year I also maintain a spreadsheet listing the names of each student and the fees invoiced for each month, plus the amounts of any agency commission. It makes the self-assessment return a lot easier.

    When I rung HMRC in September and told them they said they would send me a self-assessment form. I dont think I have my tax reference number yet. My earnings are in a separate account and I have invoices as proof.

    @bramblesarah they send the self assessment forms after the tax year end. So you will receive it after 5th April 2020, usually around May or June. You're registered with them, therefore you could claim compensation, IF the government sets up a compensation scheme for the self employed. They still haven't done so yet.:(

    It's much easier to register online, get the UTR number allocated and then you can login and file your self-assessment return online.
