Are you qualified to accept freelance work w/ tourist's visa

I’m going to the UK for four months, (which my passport allows). Would it be possible for me to look and acquire for freelance work without getting any drama?

Just wondering.

Depends if you can bill it through another entity such as a business in your home country or you can get them to pay cash in hand (to stay off the books). You don’t want to get caught working illegally. Not pretty. If you can get a client to agree to pay to a business (either you or a trusted friend own) with an account outside of the UK you should be OK. I know a friend who did this in the US on and off, just don’t get caught. BTW, you won’t be able to claim the work as your own as you were never working there.
