Telling HMRC when you become self employed

HMRC has published an improved version of Form CWF1 to be used when a person becomes self employed (see www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/cwf1.pdf).

 
In November 1999 Lord Grabiner was appointed by the Chancellor to conduct an investigation into the formal, or hidden, economy and to recommend how to move economic activity out of the hidden economy. Among his recommendations were that more assistance should be given to the newly self-employed at the outset to avoid trouble later on with the revenue departments (and perhaps other regulatory bodies) and that, to facilitate this, there should be an effective requirement to notify the Inland Revenue on or soon after the start of business.
 
One of the outcomes of the Grabiner report was that the existing From CWF1, which was used to make a written application to pay Class 2 National Insurance contributions was replaced by a simpler form. That form has now been improved.
