One-off freelance project - tax implications?

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience of being a very occasional freelancer.

    I just did a one off piece of work for an ex-employer and I'm just about to ask them to pay up :D

    If I don't anticipate doing any more freelance work - I'm now working full-time again, which is enough for me - do I need to register as self employed?

    I've read the "Freelancing on the side" article, which was really helpful but didn't quite cover this I think.

    If it really will be just a one off piece of work then you can declare this on your Personal Tax Return as "Other Income".

    If you do anymore then you really ought to register as a self employed freelancer with the Revenue
