    I have a website earning some £30-50 daily from adsence. I think I should pay if I earn more than £10000. I'm just curious I have had a few adsence checks already without a problem. Do you pay tax?

    £10k is your yearly allowance, so no; you don't need to pay taxes until you reach this limit. However, you should declare it :)

    So even though I don't earn 10k I should still declare it?

    Yes, it's better to play it straight with the tax man, sign up online to self assessment. Fill in the form once a year.

    Although you don't pay tax on the first £10,000 or so, whatever you declare may impact any state benefits you might be receiving.

    I would declare the income starting from now if I were you.

    you need to register as self employed for tax purposes ASAP after you become self employed. There is currently a three month deadline to register otherwise you could be liable for a penalty from HMRC.
