On asking me to call a ceilidh...|
You do have to do all that (well, I don't know about registering as a sole trader - I didn't, I just registered as self-employed, is that what you meant?) but it's not all that horrific to do. Mostly. About two days of paperwork pain, I think. I did get caught out by the NI thing, but I have recently smugly sent them my profit and loss pages from 2010-2012, which show a consistent loss, so ha.
FWIW, the limit on not paying extra NI is about £5000 from your self-employment.
