Business support for childminding
As a childminder, you run your own business and being self-employed means that you have to have formal contracts in place with parents, policies and procedures and keep your books up to date, as well as meet the requirements of Ofsted.
Being self-employed you are responsible for your own Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions. You will need to keep records of income and expenses.
