I am currently living in Portugal and goin to move to the UK (Scotland) tomorrow. My boyfriend found a job there, so his company will be taking care of most of the needed paperwork, but I will have to work as a freelancer.
In order to set up as a sole trader it seems that I have to follow the instructions I found here https://www.gov.uk/set-up-sole-trader, but I find myself with some doubts. A lot of the information I find online is for people outside the EU and need Visas.
I will need a national insurance number right? Where should I go to request one as a new UK resident?
It seems that when applying for a Biometric Residence Permit, a national insurance number would be assigned to me, but as a EU citizen can I apply for a Biometric Residence Permit?
If I cannot obtain a Biometric Residence Permit, what type of UK identification can I get?
