Income less than 1k: do I need to register?

    I'm new to this forum but couldn't find an answer to this, so here we go:

    I'm a UK national living in Turkey. I've started doing small freelance jobs, and occasionally need to invoice clients for payment into UK PayPal. My work is minimal: I can't see my annual income going above GBP 1k for the moment.

    If the work is less than 1k annually, do I still need to register as a sole trader in the UK and do tax self assessment to be legit?

    I see it's been a while, but I wanted to chime in. As per the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) guidelines, you may not need to register as a sole trader and do a tax self-assessment if your income is below the threshold of £1,000 annually. However, it's always better to be safe and check with HMRC or a qualified accountant to ensure you are following the correct procedures.

    I would advise you to work on the Internet because that is where there is a chance to receive a passive income: having done the work once, from then on you can receive payment automatically, doing almost nothing for it.

    Agree. I’ve been working remotely on the internet, and when somebody asks me what I do for a living, I can’t answer accurately, so I just say ‘as freelancer.

    This year I moved house and started living alone in another town. I don't know anyone here, but I started searching for part time jobs near me. Also, I found a good method to earn money because it allows you to work from anywhere and earn money. It's a good method because you have a guide that explains to you what is better to do. Also, you have to register on the platform. You can collaborate with other freelancers. Also, your guide will always explain to you how to do your job better.
