Tax nightmare or piece of p***? I just got a one day a week contract with a national organisation, but I will be in receipt of a salary from them. I am self employed as well. What do I do, is it a tax nightmare or am i unecessarily nervy because Im new to all this?

    When you get your tax return, call them and ask for the employment pages as well as the self-employment pages. They've changed the form this year to a short form and I haven't seen how this affects the employment pages.

    In the past I've always given an employer my unique tax reference number to stop them taxing me. Some will claim it's not policy to do that, but if they want to they can get around it.

    The tax return will be a doddle cos you'll fill in a part for PAYE and this'll be taken into account for your calculation.
