    I was just wondering if I need to register as self-employed in order to work legally as a tutor. I would be working between July and September, probably for no more than fifteen hours a week (and I'm being optimistic here). Also, will I need to register for tax (even if I don't have to actually pay any)?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there! Yes, if you do any self-employed work you will need to register as self-employed, and later fill out a tax return, even if you think the amounts you're earning are below the tax threshold.

    If you've not earned enough through the course of your self-employed (and any employed work) over the financial year, you will not be asked to pay anything.

    For more details on all of this, you can take a look at this page:
