Do you have to receive a payslip for cash in hand from an employer?
If they are paying cash in hand do they have to pay tax and national insurance on your behalf.
Would it be better to go self employed and declare your wage that way?
When you go self employed would you then have to give your employers a weekly/ monthly invoice for your services?
Is it against the law to pay someone cash in hand and not declare it with HMRC and if so is there a penalty?
If as an employee you declare your wage without a payslip is this acceptable?
How do you declare the amount you earn if it differs from week to week?
In simple terms - do you just contact the tax office telling them the amount you have earnt for the week and they then send a demand for tax/national insurance etc...
How can they be sure the amount you are disclosing is correct without a pay slip?
So it is a guesstimate of earnings and having declared the amount you think you will earn How do you then pay tax - do they work it out on a monthly rate and you set up a direct debit?
If you have been out of the system not working or claiming do you have to account for the lost years?
