I am earning around $2000 per month although it is not guaranteed if it is more or less. I am doing a long term JV and split the earnings 50% to my partner in the USA via paypal. I get the money sent on a net45 basis via check and I just cash it in at the local bank branch. I am still a student studying at university what taxes do I have to pay or is there any way of avoiding it? I have now set-up a wire transfer to have the money wired to me does this make any difference? BTW: The check/payment comes from the USA, sunny California so does that technically mean I am earning from outside the UK.
