Hi everyone,
I am a qualified translator and I am studying a Master's in Marketing Management. I am 25 years old and I have long experience in the labour marked, however not as an independent money maker yet. My question is rather simple but I can't seem to find the answer around here.
I am not yet registered as a freelancer in Spain even though I have delivered several major translations for companies--I was on payroll-- and now I would like get started working on a full basis as a freelance translator, but I am living in England and will go to Australia for about 3 months really soon ( my husband is a businessman who relocates quite often). So, my question(s) being:
1. Should I register in Spain for 'Autonomos' in 'Hacienda' and 'Seguridad Social' and then transfer to the English Tax Council?
2 Or, instead, should I apply for freelance status in the UK?
3.Can tax advisors in the Uk provide suitabe answers for such questions?


If any of you could advice me further on this matter, it would be great. Thank you very much
