    Hello!

    This is my first post here. I have tried to call the HMRC helpline but never got through to anyone so I hope someone can help me out here.

    I have a permanent, full time job but I do some casual freelance work as a proof reader so I registered as self employed for that. Last financial year I only earned £425 from my freelance work.

    This is the second time I'm trying to fill in my self assessment online and my question is: do I mention my full time job? When I did, I got an estimate to pay over one thousand pounds in account even though all the tax pertaining to my full time position is dealt with by the company that employs me. When I omitted my full time job, it said I had no tax to pay, which can't be right either. Is there some box I have to tick?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Joana

    You need to put your income from employment in Box 1 and tax deducted in Box 2 on the Employment pages. That way the correct tax will be calculated.
