    The £1000 allowable by HMRC is net income, not after expenses etc.
    Gross income, not net income. As you say, before any deduction of expenses:

    The £1000 net income.
    is the £1000 part of income tax or does this sit in another tax bracket?

    if it’s income tax.. the info many have given.. £1000 net does that mean if someone has income and already are tax payers (20/40%/50%). Anything earnt from mystery shopping means will be taxable?

    Anyone done any of the Crypto ATM visits? Presumably the reason for doing these is that you can sell your crypto afterwards. How much are you left with after commission?

    Sorry if this has been asked before but with the shear number of threads and posts it is beyound me to check back ...

    Has anybody done a mystery shopper assignment involving signing up to a charity lottery with an on-street collector?  It's come up as an option and is close to home, but feels a bit dodgy to me - especially as it says 'we will cancel you direct debit for you ...'

    any advice much appreciates as a total newbie to Mystery Shopping

    Hi, sorry only just seen this.

    I do mystery shopping, not done it long, 2 months or so, but done about 20 now.

    There are some that involve creating a DD, however the ones I've seen (but not done) have been banking shops with the intention of seeing how the various branches are using their banking halls and the DD's are advised to be 'pretend' savings ones in your own name, so technically there is no risk though they say you are free to cancel it if you wish later.

    All I would say is if you aren't sure, don't do it. They are good little earners - done 2 in the last 2 days, took me about 2.5 hours all in all and should get £45.00 - but they don't pay enough to warrant you risking any money yourself.

    I currently go through 4 different mystery shop companies and touch wood everything has been fine so far.
