I am a permanent UK resident. I earn circa £35k a year from a UK organisation, before tax and any other deductions.
I have recently started doing a 'side-hustle', that is freelance and me producing blogs/articles for a company based out in the US. I am paid in dollars, which I then transfer into GBP upon receipt. This work compromises me of researching and drafting content to be used on an American website which generates ad revenue for my sole customer. I am paid a flat fee and receive no other earnings from this content. I expect my earnings to be no more than £1000 for this, and future, tax years.
My questions are:
Is this income classed as foreign income?
If this is classed as foreign income, am I permitted to use the £1000 traders allowance and exempt myself for registering for self-assessment?
Do I need to register myself as a business/ register for tax purposes in any way?
How should I proceed?
