If you run your business working for yourself as a contractor or freelancer you are self-employed. This brings challenges and with it responsibilities. Making the right decisions at the right time can be crucial for your business. That’s why understanding the implications of your decisions is very important.

Here we also explain the rules on working with sales agents/reps, on demand workers like couriers and we give you template contracts for when you are transacting with other businesses like yours. We also discuss topics such as competition law, pricing and price fixing and how that may affect your business.

From contracts, planning and delivering on a project to complaints and chasing debt, in this section you’ll find guidance and documents to help you understand the key legal issues when you are self-employed.
