I really enjoyed issue 30’s article on selling photos, but in every article I’ve read on this theme, nobody ever says what needs to be done about the tax man! How selling one photo will affect a person’s tax status? Miroslaw Hendzlik, London
As you’re in the UK, the best thing to do is contact the Inland Revenue (www.hmrc.gov.uk) before selling a photo and they can give you specific advice on how it will affect you. Readers outside the UK, contact your own country’s tax authorities for advice.
