Someone i know is hoping to be booked as a singer in pubs/ clubs, at weddings etc. Would she be considered self employed and need to pay tax on earnings? Would she need to register herself as a company? Thanks.

She wouldn't have to register as a company, she can be self employed just like a joiner or plumber etc, if she earns money then she will have to pay tax and stamp, like any other self employed worker. I would imagine whoever uses her services would want receipts off her so they can show where their money has gone.

I now that Brom Legion uses and agency of sorts who send different acts every week, maybe more steady work going down that route.

Hope all goes well, oh and tell her to receipts for all equipment as these things can be claimed back at the end of tax year, so can travel i.e. petrol etc, would recommend she gets some proper advice though.

Anything she pays out for ie mics, amps etc is tax deducatable.

Has she considered contacting caravan parks that have their own club houses?

If she needs help doing her tax on the entertainment circuit she should contact the local Liverpool specialists. Apply to:

Mr Kenneth Dodd

Your friend is effectively becoming what is classed as a "Sole Trader" and yes, she will need to pay tax on any profits. It really isn't that difficult and she shouldn't be put off by this.

I recommend she contacts the revenue for advice on becoming self employed (even if it is only part time) - they do an excellent 2 day course which explains everything about what you can claim etc and how to complete a tax return - and it is completely free smile

Perhaps a first step would be to take a look at http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/selfemployed/tmastarting-up-in-business.shtml
