    Hi all,

    I am bit concerned about cash in hand job ,how it works , I moved to UK last year and struggling to find job here and after 7 month I found 3 months temp job and still hunting for job here. Recently I joined job to people I know and it is for 12 hours a week and paid in cash. My concern is I registered with one consultancy and still temporary contract with them is going on and I have taken other job which is paid in cash. I dont know at this point what I have to do ,I cant terminate my contract with consultancy who provide me with 3 months job and waiting thinking that they may provide me other job and I dont want to say this to people who gave me 12 hours a week job which is paid in cash.If I take cash in hand how I can proceed .

    Thank you

    Are you saying you can't work both jobs at the same time?

    Cash in hand is often beneficial as it means you won't be taxed, although at 12 hours a week you wouldn't be taxed anyway.

    It depends on how much they're earning, they may still be obliged to pay National Insurance. I might be wrong but I think it's legal for your employer to pay you in cash as long as they don't avoid their obligations under PAYE. If the job is actually cash-in-hand it means that your earnings are undeclared so you don't pay tax, which is illegal.
