Hi, I'm new to this - so Hello to all!

I wonder if you can help me ...

I have been thinking of going Self-Employed for a while now.
I'm happy with my job, the money's not bad and the jobs are okay, I've been at the company since I was 15/16 (I'm only 23 now) and I like nearly all the people I work with lol. However, I've been thinking of doing things for my self for a quite a while.
I'm a competent electrician, I've been running jobs for a while now and am always being asked to help out with family/friends/friends of friends jobs. The only problem with helping them is the fact that I cannot provide them with a certificate (despite being qualified to test) because of the stupid Part P!!

I'd like to hear from anyone that's set themselves up self-employed...

I could do with finding out:
- How much it's going to cost (for insurance, Part P etc)

I'm not looking to cut corners but need to know how much everything will cost so I can start looking towards budgets.
- What equipment i'm going to need i.e test equipment etc.

- How I go about enrolling for the NIC / NAPTA (Which one is better?)
- What the going rate for a self-employed electrician is (I know over heads influence this!)



Thanks for your help guys!

:)
