I was a permanent employee at a company for the first 6 months of the tax year. I have gone freelance for the remainder of the tax year and the foreseeable future. I am receiving a salary in effect as the companies I freelance for deduct 25% tax on my earnings and pay me a monthly lump sum (salary) and they provide IRP5s. Does this mean I won't have to register as a provisional tax payer and also at 25% tax could I apply for a tax directive?

If you are receiving an IRP5 then no you will not need to become a provisional taxpayer. You can apply for a directive to change that percentage if it is appropriate.
