Self Employment and Sole Trading

Self employment is the act of generating one's income directly from customers, clients or other organizations as opposed to being an employee of a business or person.

Generally, tax authorities will view a person as self employed if the person chooses to be recognized as such, or is generating income that that person is required under legislation to file a tax return.
