- Consultancy/ training fees received
- Payments received for providing entertainment or organising parties
- Buying and selling goods for profit at car boots or market stalls
- Income from hairdressing, gardening, taxi driving or fitness training
- Profits from making and selling craft items
If you believe you have additional income to declare a notification form must be completed and submitted to HMRC then you have four months to complete a disclosure form and pay the tax you owe. Penalties of up to 100% may be imposed on those targeted by HMRC however individuals makings a voluntary disclosure as part of the Second Incomes campaign will be able to take advantage of either 0%, 10% or 20% penalties.
