    ROI salary declaration to UK 23rd Jun 19 at 9:53 PM
    Hi all, are there any people out there that know if it is the law to declare a Euro salary to the UK government through Self Assessment.

    It would appear that its suggested that you should, annually through self assessment, but is it law???

    Kind regards

    Hi, resident in N.I., but working cross the border in ROI and paying all the normal tax there.

    Only have a small UK income from a house let so was declaring that through the UK self assessment.

    The reason I ask is that some UK benefits are means tested which I could be entitled to, if I were not declaring my small ROI income.

    When ur on the breadline, every small benefit counts.

    Well, since you own and rent out a house, you’re probably not on the breadline.

    Sounds like a simple case of tax evasion.
    It’s a lot easier to get caught than it used to be, following the invention of the computer.
    How do you get access to your income? Presumably you have a southern bank account. You need pounds from time to time? Use an ATM in Northern Ireland or GB and you declare yourself as having a bank account outside the UK which you have not told the inland revenue about. Why has this apparently poor man a southern account? Pretty clear.

    Is your car worth more than a couple of hundred? How did you pay for it, the insurance, the tax? There’ll be an obvious paper trail from your southern bank account if that’s how you did it.

    If you stick rigidly to cash you might get away with it a bit longer, using your euro in Newry or Keady or similar, but remember you’ll be unable to buy anything any way valuable such as a house or car worth more than a few thousand without triggering anti money laundering limits. Unexplained wealth is enough to set off an investigation, since it usually means criminality of some level, as indeed it does in this case.

    A lot of ways to get caught ripping off the system. The old cliche - you need to be good if you’re going to be bad. Own up and suck it up.
