My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today

Self-employed income has to be reported to HM Revenue and Customs (formerly Inland Revenue). She can report her income on a self assessment basis by submitting a tax return by 31 October after the end of each financial year. HMRC will calculate whether any income tax is due.

You should note that if your wife earns less than £2,500 per annum she will not have to do a tax return but she still has to notify HMRC of her work.

Happy to discuss further if needed.
