You will need to register as self-employed with HMRC to make sure you pay the correct Income Tax and National Insurance for your wages. As a sole trader you will have to complete a self-assessment tax return every year after 5th April, which you can do online. You must do this even if you are also employed elsewhere, as this can change how much you are taxed altogether across all of your employment.
What you will pay in Income Tax depends on how much of your income is above your Personal Allowance, and how much of this falls within each tax band. The current 2017/18 tax-free Personal Allowance in the UK is £11,500. This is the amount of income that you can earn a year that you don’t have to pay tax on. Anything you earn over this amount will be taxed, and the tax you pay will depend on how much you earn above your personal allowance.
It is crucial that you register as self-employed and submit details of your income to the government within three months of starting your work. Failure to do this puts you at risk of being audited and paying a fine.
Most tutoring agencies, including Teachers To Your Home Ltd, operate on the basis that all payment is to be managed solely between the tutor and the student. This means that all payment and income records are your own responsibility, and you must therefore keep a detailed record of your earnings for HMRC.
How Do I Complete a Self-Assessment Form?
For a simple and easy self-assessment process, it’s important to have ready all the necessary information you need for your personal circumstances. In becoming a private tutor, you should be keeping records of your income and have all the relevant paperwork up to date to make this process as straightforward as possible.
For your self-assessment form you will need:
You will need to fill in a self-assessment form called SA100, which is available on the HMRC website. There are guidance notes available to help you during the process of filling out the form. There are supplementary pages of the self-assessment form to fill out if you have more than one self-employed job. These will give you the opportunity to declare any earnings from other jobs that you have as a sole trader. This can be filled out by hand and posted, or filled out and submitted online. HMRC can send you the relevant forms for your circumstances and the guidance notes to help you fill them out. They can also be downloaded from their website. If you are completing the form online, you must register and make a login on the HMRC website. You will then receive a password which will grant you access to the online forms. You will receive the password in the post, which can sometimes take a couple of weeks, so it’s a good idea to leave yourself plenty of time.
The deadline for a tax return by post is 31st October. If you complete the forms online, then you have until 31st January. A penalty of £100 can be given if you miss these deadlines.
If you have any problems, please see the HMRC website. You can call the HMRC Self-Assessment helpline on 0845 9000 444.
