Women and insurance - The self-employed woman

20 %of self-employed people in Britain are women, so if you come into this category make sure that you read the section on pensions. It is advisable to make your own private arrangements for pensions and, as you will see, there are considerable tax advantages in so doing.

There is another quite separate but equally valid consideration: if you are self-employed you qualify for only the basic state pension on retirement and this is barely enough to live on.

It’s all very easy to organise.
Just ask the Personnel or the Payroll Department at your company and, if they already have a scheme, they will give you the relevant forms.  HM Revenue & Customs’ website has a list of Payroll Giving agencies and explains payroll giving in more detail.
