Dear All,

I am currently working full-time and hence get my salary monthly via my employers standard PAYE System. I have recently been offered EVENING contracting work for few hours everyday for a private company. What is the best way for this? Shall i go with an umbrella company to sort out this extra payment? Is this possible at all? Will there be any intervention from my current employer?? Under normal circumstances, i do not want to make my current employer aware of this extra/evening work. Please advise.

You'll want to take a look at your contract of employment. Most employers do NOT look favourably on employees who moonlight even in jobs unrelated to their daytime work. If they find out you've been doing work similar to what you do during the day they're going to get VERY annoyed.

If you're going direct, then they can pay you direct and you just declare it on your tax return.

If you're going through an agency, then you'll need an umbrella or Ltd.

Doesn't this count as self-employment though? If it is you have to register with HMRC and fork out for Class 2 contributions (about a tenner a month). You also have to fill in a separate tax form for self-employment, which is not too difficult (providing you get less than 15 grand a year).

If it's only a few hours a night, you might just declare it as income on your tax return.

I used to do that before I started up a company.

But isn't the company now legally liable for the deduction of tax unless you can prove you are self-employed or working via a Ltd Co.?

A while back I took on someone to do a day's consultancy, all seemed fine until he invoiced - he was employed elsewhere - and my client deducted tax and I can remembering investigating and finding out that they were right (at the time at least).
