Did you know?
Income Tax is only due on taxable income that's above your tax-free allowance (Personal Allowance).
The tax-free allowance is an amount of taxable income you're allowed to earn or receive each year tax-free. The tax-free allowance for 2014-15 is £10,000 (for people born after 5 April 1948).
Income Tax Band
The tax band applies to your income after your tax allowances (and any reliefs) have been taken into account. You're not taxed on all of your income.

How do I pay Income Tax?
1. You are an employee. This is easy and you don’t have to do anything. Your employer will deduct Income Tax directly from your wages throughout the year using PAYE (Pay As You Earn).
2. You are self-employed. You’ll need to register for Self-Assessment as soon as you start your activity and complete a Self-Assessment tax return. You can complete and fill in a paper form or file your return online. With the latter, your tax is worked out automatically as you fill in the form so you'll know what you owe right away.
