Uber Eats Delivery Driver - Taxes?

9 replies 139 views
So I currently work as an Uber Eats delivery driver in my free time but i’m not quite sure what would happen in regards to paying taxes etc. I work a full time job which I am taxed on, but when I googled ‘Self Assessment’ taxes, it was unclear how I would do this if I was also employed?

    You’ll fill in your two different employments on your self-assessment form, and will be taxed as though all the wage was from one job; you don’t get an additional tax-free allowance on a second one.

    I’m already being taxed on my full time job so i’m not sure why I would also include this on my self assessment form?

    You have to declare all income on your sa form even if already taxed.

    If you look at the forms you'll see that there is a question which asks you if you are employed, and requires you to declare your income from employment. Sio you will fill in the normal SA100 plus a supplemental SA102 form, where you fill in information taken from your P60.
    I assume that it makes it easier to ensure that all of your information is combined so you don't either get taxed twice on the same income, or claim the same allowances twice. 

    All posts are my personal opinion, not formal advice Always get proper, professional advice (particularly about anything legal!)

    Because all earnings need to be included. I’ve only one job, on PAYE, yet have to fill in a self-assessment each year where I list it.

    You’ll need to submit your return for tear-ending April 2021 no later than January 2022, and would normally pay the tax that you owe at the same time.

    Just to elaborate on this, I actually only started doing deliveries after the 5th April so I have nothing to declare for the FY end April 21.
