So, am I to understand that you will be working freelance? Sub-contract style? Zero hours contract stuff?
If the 'pipe fitting' is part of the construction industry
(HMRC have a list of trades/job descriptions, that they classify as 'construction related')
Then a whole different set of rules and regulations apply.
However, you will find that much greater responsibility is loaded on tne 'main contractor' in construction related business, much less on the sub contractors - so you may find that doing your own tax return is simply a matter of filling in an online form.
It really does depend on the exact definition of your job, and your employment status.
