    Let's say a 17 year old was working in a pub washing up, clearing tables etc, on weekends for a bit of cash for a few months, like £20 a week. If this individual puts this on their CV / applications for internships etc. and the company looks into it, would the pub get done for not doing taxes/declaring it? Surely there is no problem as it 20pw is well below the tax threshold... Anyone know anything about the law for cash in hand work?

    Nobody will check how you got paid. But make sure you're being paid minimum wage even if it's cash

    Cash in hand work is illegal... Because usually if they're paying cash in hand they're not declaring how much tax they should be paying

    Not always. As you then go on to mention; it depends if the company is declaring and paying tax on it.
