Did you know that there are a number of things that your TaxScouts accountant can help you expense on your tax return?
You only pay National Insurance for your:
For anything else, like dividends, savings interest, foreign income, etc., you don’t need to pay National Insurance, only Income Tax.
Of course, if you wish to qualify for or increase your State Pension, you can always make voluntary National Insurance contributions.
Registering for VAT as a self-employed is rare.
You only need to do it if:
The UK tax year for individuals starts April 6th and ends April 5th of the following year. From then, you have until January 31st to complete your online tax return for the previous tax year.
For example: you works as a restaurant waiter in the morning and drive an Uber in the evenings. You will have to file a tax return for your Uber income.
Your UTR number is a Unique Taxpayer Reference that you get when you register for Self Assessment.
It consists of 10 digits (sometimes with a letter K at the end) and is issued to you by HMRC.
Check out our guide to getting a UTR.
If you’re self-employed, you can get up to £1,000 each tax year as a tax-free allowance. This is called the Trading Allowance.
Most people do not need to file a Self Assessment because they are taxed at source. But there are a few reasons you may need to complete a tax return:
Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to claim different expenses back on your Self Assessment.
If you’re self-employed you can claim expenses individually (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Trading Allowance.
If you’re a landlord, you can claim certain replacement items, renovations and if you live in the property (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Property Income Allowance.
Other general allowances can be found here for investors, high-earners and other taxpayers.
