In March 2015 I embarked on my freelancing career. I have been working for numerous companies of which some pay tax and some don't. I also have a business where I get a percentage of profit share. Am I correct in saying that I need to register to become a provisional tax payer and when do I file my first submission?

Yes, since you are self-employed and earning income which is not taxed, you should be registered as a provisional taxpayer.

Please note, the first provisional tax payment for the 2015/2016 tax year is due 31 August. Please see further details at the link below.
