    er not that i an expert but yes when starting out it is hit and miss until you have enough base work to keep you going...something i am just about at after two years...

    its easy to do online...providing you can remember your passwords...login..unique tax payer number ..and you just enter amount earnt over the year and they just tell you what you have to pay...and also they give you time to pay if you ask.
    hours in or out of work dont really matter....its income that counts..and of course dont forget the expenses...dinner at the local to get business etc...oh better not try that one...:cool:

    hey i a numpty if i can do it so can anyone....

    The HMRC website is where you want to go. Register & keep details (particularly the ID number) in a secure place.
    You do just pay tax annually, because of your regular job I think you'll paying 20% on your window cleaning income minus expenses.

    you will have to pay about £3 a week - that's class 2 NIC regardless how much u earn - and at the end of the year fill in your tax return - also there is a section on that form where u can input your employment status and how much you earn .

    Let say you got £4000 from your ladder job and £7000 as an employee =£11000 - £9940 (personal allowance) so u pay Class 4 NIC for £1060 I think

    on the P60 form there is a reference number which needs to copied on the tax return - and I think once you put that information the software knows the tax has been paid from your other job - if you ask an accountant they can definitely help
