    Hello,

    Receintly started dropshipping ,earned about 300£ in two months. This is my extra income because I do have full time work. Since I am uk resident I don't knoe much about the laws when or what taxes you have to pay on your earnings. So few questions.

    1. Paypal asking to confirm my indentity and address. Is it for taxes?
    2. What amount can be extra income and how much I have to earn to pay taxes?

    So for now I just stopped dropshiping due lack of information about tax law in uk.

    Register as self employed, keep accounts. If your job earnings use up your whole tax free allowance then you'll pay your tax bracket rate on all of your self employed profits.

    You need to register as self employed as soon as you start ideally however they're not super strict on that.

    Yes, you register as self employed while working... you can do both.

    I don't know about PayPal. If you want to use their services then you'll need to provide them what they ask for.

    Okay. How does this tax payment work. Should I declare monthly earnings?

    I would hate to advise you incorrectly but yes you should declare all your earnings. The tax office are extremely helpful so I would just give them a call and ask. It is a pain to set these things up but worse if you don't get it all put in place correctly right from the start. Good luck!
