If you are earning money through any means other than PAYE then you must complete a self-assessment tax return each year to declare that income and calculate the amount of tax you owe.
Directors and shareholders extracting dividends, property and goods traders and the self-employed are all subject to self-assessment and must complete their annual personal tax return detailing income from all sources in each tax year within 9 months of the tax year ending.
Failure to comply with self-assessment regulations can result in stressful penalties.
