Being self-employed is very different to traditional employment, with its own wide array of advantages and disadvantages – one commonly sighted drawback of being your own boss is having to deal with all of your admin and finances. In a recent survey, we carried out 37% of people worried about whether they’d be able to pay their bills working as self-employed and 22% worried about the sheer admin needed.
On the plus side, self-employed drivers can typically pay slightly less tax than employed drivers and get flexibility over their work, choosing a work-life balance that suits their individual circumstances.
We’ve worked with over 50,000 self-employed drivers, with the Wise platform helping to save time and stress whilst also maximising their take-home pay each week.
At Wise, we partner with Securitax, a company that specialises in helping self-employed individuals with their accounting and all things tax. Securitax does all the administrative work and has a team of accountants who can help you increase your income whilst making sure all of your HMRC-related affairs are in order.
How does Wise Work?
Wise provides two essential services to our drivers, both of which are optional. However, the overwhelming majority of self-employed drivers choose a product as it can help them save time, money and stress.
