Hello, I am looking to start up my own business as a self employed sole trader. I was wondering which step I need to take first. Do I register with HMRC (self employed/sole trader) and wait for registration to come back, and then get my business insurance, set up website/social media, look for clients etc? Or, do I get my business insurance first, set up my website/social media etc, start looking for clients and then register with HMRC when I start working and earning money? Does it matter to HMRC which order i do things in? Thank you.

Hi
You may want to register first as you may be asked for your unique reference for insurance etc.
Thankyou.
Regards.
