Self employed carer - Use this great app
Posted: Wed Jun 01, 2022 11:13 am
Hi, I am a carer and recently look the leap from being employed to self employed. I wasn't worried about finding the work as there are loads of platforms with an abundance of clients, I was really worried about submitting expenses and filing my accounts. In the end I have used the services of PDL payment solutions. They have been providing a service in other industries but are now offering the app for carers. All I do on a daily basis is record my activities which can be submitted as expenses. They then link these to the HMRC for me on a weekly basis and the expenses reduce my tax and NI contributions. I now take home 90% of my wage each week and I get payslips so I can still get credit for when I'm skint. I don't have any of the worry or headache of keeping a track of all my receipts as they are uploaded and approved via the app. There are loads of expenses which can be submitted from laundry, fuel, food, PPE etc. The difference it has made to me is unbelievable. If you're going to take the leap of faith do it the easy way !!
