Evri is the UK's biggest dedicated parcel delivery company. If you work as a courier for them, you count as Self-employed. As a Self-employed individual, you are legally required to submit a Self Assessment tax return to HMRC if you earn more than £1000 in a tax year.

What do I do as an Evri self-employed courier?

As Evri couriers are classified as Self-employed, HMRC requires you to complete a Self Assessment tax return. To do this, you will need a UTR number. This can be obtained by following this guide.

How much tax do I need to pay?

The tax a Self-employed individual must pay is based on their income minus any Expenses that they claim. They are entitled to the same tax-free Personal Allowance that an Employee receives. They are also entitled to the Trading Allowance which means that the first £1000 of Self-employed income does not have to be declared and no tax is owed on it.

The tax bands for Self-employed individuals are the same as the ones for Employees. For the 2023/24 Tax Year, the tax bands are:

What can I expense as an Evri courier?

One of the perks of being a Evri Self-employed courier is that you’re able to claim back some of your tax on business Expenses. Any Expenses incurred that are wholly and exclusively for your work are tax deductible. This includes some things like:

If you use the same vehicle for your own personal use, you will need to factor this in when claiming any Expenses. For example, if you use your vehicle 60% of the time for personal use, then you would only be able to claim 40% of certain costs like car insurance.
