Dear all,



Here is a question for those of you freelancing in the UK.



I will be completing my first self-assessment in this country and I am not familiar with the amounts you usually have to pay for income tax.



My question is basically how much money (what percentage) of my earnings should I be keeping aside for income taxes?



I understand this varies and expenditure has to be taken into account, but a rough percentage figure would do, as I have heard different things (about 20%, 25%, etc)



I would greatly appreciate any help.



Kind regards.

rough % from a non expert Apr 5, 2003

I believe 25% is the very rough estimate that people tend to talk about, to include income tax and national insurance (which is really a tax). The income tax element would be less.

Tax and fiscal experts please correct me...



Looking since - I think there\'s a better answer to this than mine in \"Being Independent\" (in answer to the same question)!
