Hi, so I'm currently full-time employed earning £30K, but since Nov 2023 - March 2024 I have been doing some freelance work for another company (same type of work but not the same employer). I looked at the total earnings for that freelance work and it came down to £747 in total in those 4 months. I know that the limit is £1000 but I was wondering if that's including my current full-time job or if that doesn't factor into it anyhow. I did the online eligibility quiz with the notion that it's separate and it's currently saying I don't need to do a self-assessment but just figured I should ask in case I should be thinking about my full-time earnings too. (They are of course automatically taxed.)

Hi Haximus,
The £1000 limit is for the self employment income only. 
Thank you.

So does that mean I need to do a self assessment? My regular wages are automatically taxed.

Hi Haximus,
If your self employed income is less than £1000 and you do not meet any other Self Assessment criteria then you do not need to submit a Self Assessment tax return.
You can check if you meet criteria at Check if you need to send a Self Assessment tax return 
Thank you.
