I am on child tax credit and working tax credit. Do I declare Avon commission to inland revenue?

Hi Kia and welcome to the forum.

I really don't know how it goes with your benefits. Maybe the Citizen's Advice Bureau can help advise you? I can't find anything about it on Google.

I used to work in payroll though and completed MANY forms for the DSS for my casual employees and it was a nightmare. I imagine this will be even worse to do with Avon, especially as we all buy products for ourselves.

Sorry I can't tell you more.

I'm on both as well, I don't make anything more than about 40, I have read on the website if its not over 75 regularly then i don't suspect its an issue.

however, avon is my only 'job' and my OH earns the real money.

i found this off the "moneysavingexpert":

"Assuming that her total taxable income is less than 5,225 then yes (note: Jobseeker's allowance is taxable income and so counts towards this, too).

If the expected earnings from this self-employment is less than 4,635 then she won't have to pay NI either (but she'll have to fill out a small earnings exemption form to get a cert, and it may have implications in terms of NI contributions)."

YES - it does affect benefits!!

If you are in receipt of JSA or IS from the DWP you MUST tell them about the income. IF you declare the income to them, and you are still entitled to Income Support or Income-based JSA (not contributions-based JSA) then you will not need to declare the income again to the local authority - see below) as these are classed as 'passported benefits'. (**please feel free to ask me if you need further info!!)

IF you are in receipt of Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Benefit you must also declare this income to your local authority where they will treat the income as 'income from self-employment'.

and yes of course you must tell the Inland Revenue as all income is taxable.

(& as I work in my 'real job' as a Benefit Assessor I can tell you that lots of reps are correctly declaring this income)

I work full time to, if you ring the self employed phoneline they are very helpful. You need to register as self employed then you will complete a tax form they tell you when it needs to be in by. You only pay tax on your profit so keep records of all your costs like brochures bags ink etc etc.

Then you don't pay any tax!!!!!!!!!!

Which is why it makes sense to keep all receipts for EVERYTHING that is in anyway related to your avon work, in order to keep your tax bill as low as possible!
