Would you like to be your own boss? Would you consider self-employment?

Invest in Renfrewshire can help!

There are currently 8,300 self-employed Renfrewshire residents and we can help you become one of them!


We can support you through vocational qualifications and training, provide advice and guidance on all aspects of self-employment and offer you practical support from day one.

There are plenty of reasons to consider self-employment: you get to ‘be your own boss’ and work more flexibly, and depending on your industry you may be able to command a much higher rate than the salary you’d be able to achieve as an employee. But there are downsides too, and when you’re thinking through being self-employed there are lots to take into account.

If you’re thinking of self-employment, we’ve got some tips for getting started – from weighing up the pros and cons of self-employment, to understanding tax and benefits when you’re self-employed.
