  • Universal credit and sole trader

    During the last tax year I received Universal credit whilst finding a job. After six months I gained a contract which required me to become a sole trader. So the universal credit stopped and I signed on with HMGC as a sole trader. During the universal credit period I only had minimum temp work. I now need to complete the tax form and my question is:- is there a tax liability on the universal credit and for the six months was the National Insutrance covered?
