Working freelance as a writer you may specialise in Stories, Poetry, Music, or even more recently internet blogging. However it may be that you make your money as a writer, it is important that you are able to generate enough repeat business to survive in what has now become an incredibly competitive marketplace.

Making the money is only the first stage of the process, you will also need to ensure that you are working as tax efficiently as possible to ensure that you are taking away from the business the maximum amount of money that you are entitled to.

There are many benefits in going freelance as a writer, benefits such as:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Working on various different projects at the same time
  • Being able to make your own decisions and inputting your own creative flair
  • Take home a much higher percentage of your wage than your counterparts because of your ability to claim expenses for tax relief

As a business owner you will be able to submit expenses for tax relief which allows you to take home a much larger percentage of your pay than an employee operating on a PAYE basis. Expenses which could include petrol costs, advertising expenses, professional courses / memberships, accountancy fees, etc.
