Hi, I am looking at taking out a membership with an organisation that is highly relevant to the freelance work I do and signing up for one of its training courses. Is it possible to put these down as expenses and, if so, would they come under 'other allowable business expenses'?
Thanks for your reply. I actually called HMRC yesterday and was told to tick B. However, given what you have said, I should have ticked:
A- This is my first job since last 6 April and I have not been receiving taxable Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, taxable Incapacity Benefit, State Pension or Occupational Pension.
Please advise which is correct, A or B.
I am finishing a freelance role in December and starting a part time PAYE role around the same time. I hope to undertake more freelance work alongside the PAYE role, but have nothing lined up as yet so the PAYE role may be my only job for a while. I also receive income from a rental property. My question is, for the PAYE payroll form's employment status question, do I tick:
B- This is now my only job but since 6 April I have had another job, or received taxable Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance or taxable Incapacity Benefit, I do not receive a State Pension or Occupational Pension ...; OR
C- As well as my new job, I have another job or receive a State Pension or Occupational Pension. This is your second job and form or form of income...
I am aware that I will need to include the PAYE income on next year's tax return.
Thank you in advance.
