I'm a casual babysitter and the 23/24 tax year I went slightly over the £1k trading allowance so I have to do a self assessment. The UK Gov website defines babysitting as a casual service (under trading allowance) but when registering for the self assessment, this is not an option; therefore, do I need to register as self-employed? Thanks!

Hi,

As you're earning over the trading allowance, you would need to register for Self Employment to declare this income.

You can do so here.

Check how to register for Self Assessment
