    "Hi all,

    I am bit concerned about paid in cash ,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.

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 .

    Many people have more than one paid job, especially if they are employed part time, on short contracts or on zero hours contracts. If you have signed a contract with the consultancy you should check that it doesn't prohibit you from working another job. Otherwise, unless there is a conflict of interest between them and you can manage your time you don't really have to do anything. A conflict would be working for a business competitor or working for both a supplier and their customer. Keep in mind that if you are paid cash in hand as a self employed worker you should register as self employed and declare these earnings to the tax authorities in an annual tax return. If you are in receipt of any benefits you would also be expected to declare it. There are people who choose to hide cash in hand earnings from the authorities and hope that they are never discovered.
