  • Restarting self assessment because of different venture

    Hi, I originally registered for self assessment when I was doing some self employed work as an actress. I informed HMRC a few years ago when I stopped as I didn't want to unnecessarily fill out self assessment tax forms and I was then a PAYE employee. I am now looking to set up my own business as a sole trader so will need to restart self assessment. Do I need to inform anyone of this, or do I just request the self assessment forms when the time comes, as I am still registered? My business name will be different, does that matter, and is it relevant when it's just sole trader and so not registered with Companies House? Thanks
