I published one e-book on Amazon a few years back, completely unrelated to my employment. Royalties from the ebook sales are sparse, grossing around between £20 and £30 per year. Still I've been diligently summing them and reporting on my Self Assessment returns under "Other UK Income". But now I've realized that perhaps this income qualifies for the Trading Allowance. Could you please confirm whether e-book sales do or not quality for the Trading Allowance? Thanks.

No. It is the actual writing of the book that counts as the trade.

Thank you.

I see. Thank you for clarifying this subtle difference!
