It is really very simple, you just put your small self employment income in the relevant boxes on a Supplementary Page SA103.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
No travelling expenses are not taxable save for regular residence to place of work where a consistency test is appropriate.
Normal allowable expenses wholly and exclusively used in relattion to your self employment can be deducted from your takings. These include [source: Gov UK web site]:
If you do the journey on a regular basis like every day it becomes residence to place of duty and not allowable against income for tax purposes.
The best way to deal with the use of the car is to award yourself 45p a mile from your self employment income. This rate is calculated to cover both running and capital costs. It is probably not worth claiming for one room in your home for office use.
Correct, just your interpreting fee needs to be declared.
Possibly, if the sum consumed is small. Personally, I would claim for every penny I expended!
IT's 45 per mile for car usage, just keep a mileage record.
Extract telephone call usage from your phone bill.
Use a proportion of your computer capital cost. Say you paid 1K for it and use it for 6 days then 6/365 = 1.64% of 1K is the relevant cost to set agianst income.
Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
No, for tax purposes you will ignore it and merely declare your fees net of motor mileage.
As far as the computer is concerned not at all. I was given the laptop I use for JA activities! As I said it probably isn't worth claiming the office type expenses.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
Thank you for your support.
