Find the right accountancy solution for your requirements

Becoming a freelance photographer is quite straightforward, and probably easier than for many other types of freelancer. The key difference in how you set up your business will be whether you want to invest in your own studio to do commissioned work, or whether you are just aiming to sell the shots that you take. In which case, all you really need is a website and lots of good contacts!

The other thing to consider is whether you want to take the plunge and give up full time employment, or whether you want to try freelancing on the side in the early days, until you are more sure of the business opportunity. If you’re doing this, or thinking of doing this, it’s probably a good idea to have a chat with an accountant as there may be tax implications you should be considering, and maybe also allowances you aren’t taking advantage of.

There are numerous benefits to freelancing, for example the freedom and flexibility to work for as many different types of client as you like, as well as the obvious benefit of increasing your take home pay. Our freelancer take home pay calculator shows you how much you can expect to take home as a freelancer.
