I hope you enjoy reading the latest issue of IPSE Magazine. We report back on our recent policy survey, which received a record-breaking level of feedback, and hear from one of our members about what the changes to the travel and subsistence claims process would mean for his business.
We also speak to Julie Deane OBE, who started her award-winning business, The Cambridge Satchel Company, with just £600, and who is now heading the Government’s independent review of self-employment.
You can also read about our fantastic finalists for the IPSE Freelancer of the Year Awards. All of our final 15 are profiled and showcase the breadth and scope of being a successful freelancer. But that’s not all. This edition includes what you need to know about the soon-to-be-appointed Small Business Commissioner, who will be tasked with tackling the UK’s poor payment culture, and a report from our best Women in Freelancing Network (WFN) event yet.
All of this makes for a jam-packed issue.
I hope you enjoy the read.
