Thank you for your question.You need to register with HMRC for self assessment as self employed. This would enable you to file a tax return with your unique tax reference number.If you already file a self assessment tax return, then you need to register as self employed.More information on this can be found herehttps://www.gov.uk/register-for-self-assessment/self-employed I hope this is helpful and answers your question.If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

Hello and thank you for your help.
The monies earned are not taxable as they are regarded as 'winnings' so I could work self employed and not pay tax, is that correct?
How would I pay National Insurance contributions?
Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your reply.Winnings on stock market are taxable... if this is what you do for living then it is taxable to income tax as income from trade and if you do it casually, then gains are chargeable to capital gains tax.You would pay tax and NI through filing self assessment tax returns. I hope this is helpful.
