How do I repay my student loan if I am self-employed?

You can find information about student loans and how you repay them on our dedicated student tax website: Tax Guide for Students. Tax Guide for Students is a non-profit website that was set up by us (the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group) to provide tax information to students and their advisers.

We cover the following topics on the Tax Guide for Students website:

The website of the Student Loans Company also contains lots of useful information.

Pensions and self-employment
