Guidance for freelancers and consultants who are getting back to business following COVID-19 restrictions
This guide is intended for freelancers who are looking to safely start working again following the easing of Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions or lockdowns.
For further advice on getting back to business for different sectors, or coronavirus FAQs, visit our Coronavirus information hub.
Self-employed workers were put under immense stresses throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with many workers on a reduced income, with no employer support, self-isolating incentives not covering expenses, and limited government support.
Now that lockdown measures are easing, freelancers and consultants can get back to business with clients to secure their income and enjoy the work they do.
To help you get back to business as safely as possible, we have prepared articles and guidance on a range of topics that we think you will find useful as you start your recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Details of how to register for the Business Toolkit are included in a MyWave Connect welcome email you should have received shortly after buying your insurance from Premierline. If you haven’t registered yet, we need to resend your Business Toolkit welcome email. Simply email us with your business name and postcode, and we will send you a copy of the email.
The Business Toolkit provides you with content specific to the industry you work in to give you guidance on how to run your business on topics such as legislation, compliance, human resources, risk management and safety.
