When I register with HMRC as self employed (sole trader), what do I need to put in as my start date? I'm a bit confused. The day I purchased my business insurance? The day I created my Facebook business page, or the date I considered myself actually starting to trade/using the page as an advertisment? Or do I choose the day I consider myself to have started my business? Thank you.

I should also point out that I havent actually had any customers yet or earned any money. I have just started in the last few days putting things together by buying business insurance and making a facebook page etc. Thanks.

You will choose the day you consider yourself to have started.

Thank you.
