    I did my first paid editor job for an animator 7 months ago, I ve been asked for an Invoice and as I did not have a VAT number I simply wrote my name, bank details etc. Now He he would like to send me jobs every two months, and he needs an invoice for each. I though it's good to start registering as a sole trader and call HMRS to get a VAT number. I do not plan to earn a lot from these jobs atm as I am still studying, but I was also thinking later to sell sounds and stock images online so I may well register sooner than later. But then shall I charge this person VAT him being a a resident of Canary Island (he told me I should not include any VAT on the invoices because he is exempt by taxes?) but then will i still not be liable to pay for that VAT amount I should charge him?? And will registering for VAT as a sole trader will be convenient for me even If I earn let's say from min 300 to 3000£ max this year ? Do I have to pay 2,50 £ every week even if I do two jobs and then stop? and pay the VAT even on just 300-400£ I earn? I will also need to buy a new mac soon and break my heart and the piggy savings bank... will I be able to claim the VAT back from Apple even if I did not make enough in the same year?

  • Tax Rebate Help (England)?

    Best answer: PAYE will automatically adjust. It already calculates your total tax for the year (11K tax free, and tax on the rest) - and averages out over the year, so you don't suddenly get a big bill when you go past 11K of tax free earnings, so when your earnings drop each month to 14K/12 (not 30K/12) they will... show more
    Best answer: PAYE will automatically adjust.

    It already calculates your total tax for the year (11K tax free, and tax on the rest) - and averages out over the year, so you don't suddenly get a big bill when you go past 11K of tax free earnings,

    so when your earnings drop each month to 14K/12 (not 30K/12)
    they will re-calculation your total earnings assuming the last 2 months are 14K/12
    recalculate your tax due on the total....
    Then look at how much you paid (in total) already...
    and how much you still need to pay - and that will be averaged over the next 2 months.

    So expect tax to be lower than it will be next year...
    as you will be 'in credit' a bit.... but not enough to generate a refund.
    If there were to be a refund, it would come in your pay packet most likely anyway.

    Rough quick calculation
    you were paying about 320 a month in tax
    you will normally pay about £50.00 a month in future (and the next 2 months)

    Night work sometimes pay extra but not all Companies do, so it's not the same as Australia.

    If you study here you will only be allowed to work 20 hours a week, that is if you can find a job.

    Best answer: You’ll usually have to pay Council Tax if you’re 18 or over and own or rent a home.

    A full Council Tax bill is based on at least 2 adults living in a home. Spouses and partners who live together are jointly responsible for paying the bill.

    You’ll get 25% off your bill if you count as an adult for Council Tax and either:

    you live on your own
    no-one else in your home counts as an adult

    You’ll usually get a 50% discount if no-one living in your home, including you, counts as an adult.

    You won’t have to pay any Council Tax if everyone in your home, including you, is a full-time student.



    These people are not counted as adults for Council Tax:
    children under 18
    people on some apprentice schemes
    18 and 19-year-olds in full-time education
    full-time college and university students
    young people under 25 who get funding from the Skills Funding Agency or Young People’s Learning Agency
    student nurses
    foreign language assistants registered with the British Council
    people with a severe mental impairment
    live-in carers who look after someone who isn’t their partner, spouse, or child under 18
