I help out at my family's takeaway and my family gives me

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I help out at my family's takeaway and my family gives me cash each week. I was just wondering if I have to declare this as income because she would give me cash each week too if I didn't help out (as pocket money), but she gives more cash if I help out more.
Thank you for your help.

I'm not sure, she says she gives me a bit for pocket money.
I didn't at the time bit have started a new job.
I received £90/week before I started a new job but will be receiving £40/week from now

Thank you for your reply.

Based on what you have said that it

- is pocket money given to you by your family

- has continued albeit at a lower figure since you have started a new job

there is a strong case to suggest this is not income chargeable to income tax and that it is not declarable for tax purposes.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask mebefore you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
