I am filling out a Self-Assessment Tax Return for the first time and a little confused on the below: Question: How many self-employed businesses did you have? I am a Freelance Actor and Video Editor, working for a video editing company as a freelancer while also looking for Acting work through an agent. Would this count as 1 business or 2? I am a sole trader in both of these instances as I do not own or run any companies and my income comes from work I find myself in the above professions. Furthermore, regarding the 'Business Name' question. Would I just put my name?

This would be 2 so separate accounts for income and expenses need to be kept. The business name will be under your own name for both unless you use a different name for your acting.

Thank you.
