Hi all, I've recently gone self-employed/freelance, and while getting myself together over the last month with designing a portfolio, stationery, making contacts etc. I haven't actually had any work yet. I've been called up for Jury Service next month and am unsure where I stand in regards to expenses. I can claim up to Â£X amount but I'd need an accountant to validate my average earnings. This is tricky as I don't have an accountant and I haven't had any work yet as I've just started out, so cannot prove my earnings. Now, I don't want to 'screw the system' or anything, but there is a possibility I could get work, or I may not. The expenses I could claim would be a significant amount to me. Has anyone had this problem before, or any advice? Thanks very much!
