Advice on self assessment


J

Julian

You can tell that it's close to self assessment deadline, the phone lines to
the Inland Revenue help line have overloaded and the BT recorded
announcment keeps telling me to try again later. Maybe some helpful
person here can help.....

I'm filling in my personal self assessment form. It's mostly straightforward
but last year a did a little bit of work reviewing some web sites and
earned the princely sum of £87. This wasn't cash in hand so there is
an invoice and corresponding payment. My question is, is there any
sort of dispensation for such low sums or do I really have to fill in the
self-employed section of the self assessment form, invent a company
name, arbitrary accounting periods, and all the other junk? Is there any
way I can fit this into the main section of my return somewhere?

Of course. Simply tick the Yes box to question 13, put "£87" into box
13.3, and put a brief note "13.3 - casual earnings" into box 23.5.

If it is going to become more regular you could go for the first page of
the self employment section, down the bottom of the page there is an
option for business with a turnover of less than 15k, that is where I
put my organ playing fees - about fifteen hundred quid this time round.
