Invoice templates for the fashion industry

Written by WhitneyWhitney, 14 November 2016 in Freelance

A friend of mine recently told me that in her boutique clothing store, everything is done by hand. Each piece of clothing is sewn individually, with the labels attached by hand and they even add their logos to the bags themselves.

While this is certainly a selling point for the clothes, the sales process doesn’t also need to be done by hand. Yet she wants to stress the unique identity of her business and is concerned that online invoicing won’t allow her the creative expression.

Written 10 October 2013 in Freelance

The self-assessment paper returns date is looming: it's at the end of this month to be precise. You do have some extra time to do your assessment online (until 31st of January), but why not do it now so you don't carry any burdens over into the New Year?

You've probably already paid a considerable amount of money (possibly out of your own pocket) to get your business started. So, I thought I'd put together a list of business-related expenses that you can include in your self-assessment form to offset against your turnover and pay lower tax as a result.

Head start for your new business

Written 15 August 2013 in Freelance General

I'm a strong believer in that you should convert your passion into your profession. It's the greatest feeling of waking up in the morning and knowing that you're going to be doing something you truly like for the whole day.

The best way to start is to look into your hobbies and think if you could turn them into business. You could be into photography, interior design, translation or even fashion blogging - there's always a way to turn these into a full-time profession.

I know a good few students that were tired of searching the overcrowded and over-demanding job market and have set up on their own and also helped out their fellow students by taking them on board. Nowadays, entrepreneurs have become new rockstars. Whether you’re in for fame, extra income or testing out your business prowess, there are some legalities you should know about.

This time I'll tell you about types of businesses that you can register.
