How do you work out how much you owe?
It’s tricky when you are self-employed, isn’t it? You know that you will have to settle up a tax bill at some point, once you have completed your Self Assessment tax return for that tax year. But how can you tell how much money to put aside so that you will be able to pay HMRC for your income tax and National Insurance?
Luckily, HMRC provide a handy online calculator to help you budget for your Self Assessment tax bill. All you need to do is enter your estimated weekly or monthly profit and it will give you an estimate of how much income tax, Class 2 and Class 4 National Insurance you will need to pay.
The online calculator assumes that the only income you have is your self-employment income and it also assumes that you have the standard personal tax allowance. It also can’t account for any previous unpaid tax that you also owe HMRC so you will have to take that into account when deciding how much you will need to budget for.
