    You only need to pay tax on earnings if your annual income is more than £12,570. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hey there @beeser and welcome to the community!

    Just wanted to stop in and say hi, I can see you're already getting some help with your query. Though I will add, you should always be paying taxes where needed, even if the money is cash in hand.

    If it's actually 'cash' then no one would know unless you're putting it in a bank account or the employer is declaring it.

    Once it's in an account, HMRC & DWP etc will be able too see that electronically for years to come.  It probably won't trigger any immediate action, but could cause issues in future if you're ever investigated or asked to send bank statements.
