  • registering as a sole trader

    I am trying to register my 16 old son as a sole trader as he is working as a sub contractor in the construction business. I have not been able to do this online as the GOV website just takes me round in circles. It says to register as self employed it then takes you to register for self assessment which then says if you are working in the CIS to register as a sub contractor, to register as a sub contractor you have to be registered as a sole trader, to register as a sole trader you have to register for self assessment, to register for self assessment you have to have a UTR to have a UTR you have to be registered as a sole trader. I am dizzy and still not able to register my son as a sole trader so that he can then register as a sub contractor for the construction industry! Please help!
