He has only been working since Tues. There are 3 other barbers in the shop and they all apparently have their own clients so he just gets the odd one or two customers that aren't fussy who cuts their hair. Aslo each hair cut ranges between £4 and £8 and then after that he also has to give the owner of the shop half of the money he earns.
Thanks for the clarification. Now I understand why the earnings are low.Your husband should register as a self-employed individual and he can do that on the HMRC website here.Assuming you and your husband are living together, both your incomes will affect your family entitlement to tax credits and you will need to disclose both incomes in your annual review form for 2013/14. As your husband has only just started the barber shop job, your current level of tax credits will be based on your income for the 2012/13 tax year which ended on 5 April 2013. You should call the tax credit helpline to update your circumstances as soon as possible so as to avoid being paid too much in tax credit which you will only have to repay later. At his current level of income, he may be entitled to working tax credit which he clearly wasn't when he wasn't working.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
Hi I don't believe my husband will be entitled to tax credits as he is in UK on a spouse visa. He has been in UK for 1 year only and has 1 more befopre he can apply for residency. Will the tax office inform immigration that he is now working as self employed?
