Self-employed workers and other micro business owners face hidden mental and physical health risks, according to research from cloud accountancy software provider FreeAgent.

The award-winning UK software company surveyed nearly 600 freelancers and small business owners and found that 73% thought that the pressures of the job had put their health under strain.

Almost four-in-ten said that freelancing affected their mental and physical health, while one-in-ten said it affected their physical health only and a quarter said it affected their mental health only.
