    As above...anyone brave enough to answer? Then let's add in getting the work in the first place? Then let's add in working for nothing until the job is completed but paying anyone who has worked for you in advance? Then add in sorting out your own NI and Tax and VAT ..H&S advice ..HR advice...demands by clients you need to be accredited to certain bodies in regards to getting that job? Then add in the late payers? Add in the pension contributions for staff ..holiday pay?.. sick pay, maternity pay ? Jobs that go wrong and the cost? All that has to be added into the equation that sums up being self employed

    You should be the first to answer your question.

    I work in finance, I dont really think about what I'm worth, if im happy with my salary and especially the working conditions and colleagues then im good.

    Thats in response to your title, I have no idea what you are talking about in the body your post.

    So what does that answer for you?
