FREELANCERS are feeling more upbeat on the economy and their business, survey data released this morning by the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE) reveals.

IPSE found that 41 per cent of freelancers are confident in their business performance improving in the next 12 months, versus 25 per cent who are not.

“It’s great to see people who work for themselves are confident in their business prospects even as they report their business costs increasing,” said IPSE chief executive Chris Bryce.
