Side Gig

[saɪd ɡɪɡ]



A Side Gig or side hustle, is a part-time job done alongside standard employment. It is a way to make extra income, or can just be a passion project.

More detail:

A Side Gig is a part-time job or business that individuals do alongside their regular employment. This may be done to supplement their income or just as a passion project.

Their flexibility has made them increasingly popular in the recent years. Some of the most popular Side Gigs include tutoring, food delivery services, selling products on e-commerce sites etc.

Income from Side Gigs is untaxed. Everybody is entitled to a tax-free allowance of £1000 but any income over that must be declared to HMRC. This is done by filing a Self Assessment.

At Earnr, we specialise at making that process easy and efficient so you can spend more time doing what you do best.
