Tax confusion!

Hi everyone!

I buy and resell computer hardware online, and make some decent money out of it (shame the GPU market is so screwed, used to make some decent money out of it ): ). Anyway, I'm starting to make a few thousand a month from selling parts from home on top of my actual job, and was wondering if I need to pay income tax on revenue from sales? I've been looking into the tax I pay on my incomes and found I am almost at the higher tax rate - if I included revenue from selling hardware it would be well into the higher tax boundary, according to this online calculator Could anyone give me some pointers/advice about this? Many thanks in advance :)

Welcome to the forum Jared, I've moved your topic to this section where I think it's better suited.

I don't have much expertise on tax although I'd think if you were drawing a profit from your trading then technically you should be registered as a sole trader and completing a tax return. If no-one else here is able to give you tax advice, I'd strongly recommend MoneySavingExpert as they have a forum section specifically on tax and are usually quite helpful: ... y.php?f=22

And yes, RIP to the GPU market :(
