Going Solo: Creating your freelance editorial business, 2nd edition

Revised second edition - updated in 2023 to reflect HMRC changes regarding tax years. Going Solo covers the main things you need to know to set up a freelance editorial business anywhere in the world, including: business planning; training, knowhow and reference tools; how to find and work with clients; equipment, ergonomic office setup and IT security; and dealing with criticism and imposter syndrome. It also includes a detailed summary of money, tax and accounting for UK-based businesses, required business records and how to keep them. Non-UK editors will find it a useful starting point for investigating their own country's requirements.
