Find the right accountancy solution for your requirements

This more flexible arrangement means that, to a certain extent, you can choose when, where and for how long you work – and subsequently, how much holiday you can take! You are also free from internal politics and can often find yourself in situations where you are learning new things and gaining valuable experience of different pharmacy environments while you work. There is also the obvious benefit of increasing your take home pay. In fact our freelancer take home pay calculator shows you how much you can expect to take home as a freelancer.

But the decision to become a locum brings with it a whole range of other questions, as it is very different from being employed as a pharmacist, and there are many other factors to consider.

Many freelance pharmacists start off doing a little freelance work in their spare time whilst still holding onto a full time job. 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.

Having made the decision to give it a go, whether full or part time and whether to set up as a sole trader or limited company, you’re going to need a wide range of tax and accountancy advice and support in the early days when setting up as a freelancer.
