I am taking on a second job on a temporary basis for about 5 weeks. I will be paid for this work at the end of the 5 weeks. What action do I need to take with the HMRC to inform them of this additional income for tax purposes. thank you

Hi carol,

If this is reported as an employment then you will not need to take any action.

Thank you.

Hello, Not sure how to post a thread on here so hope someone can help with this. Tried contacting HMRC several times but it's almost impossible to get through. Posting on behalf of someone; Need some clarification on a second job please. First job is full time employment paying all the relevant taxes. Second job is ad-hoc so it's not regular work and is working as an audio typist from home as and when. It pays very little money but would be classed as self employed - we think My understanding is there is no tax to pay on this second job as it's not regular work and you can barely make £100 after 6 months. Is this right ? How much can I earn on the second job before paying taxes ? Also do we take out expenses such as heating and electricity ? Tried looking for answers online and there's mixed answers can someone please clarify ?

Hi, I just started a second job. I want this job to be my main job and my personal allowance to be transferred to it. I want my initial job to be my second job. How do I go about this ?

@hmrc I've looked at the trading allowance do I still need to declare my second job to yourselves ?? I don't make anything near 1k in my second job

You will not need to declare it.

Thank you.
