Hi! I'm new here so my apologies if this isn't the right place to be posting (@mods, feel free to move if i will get more responses elsewhere :) )

I've been betting on football matches recently and it's only just occurred to me that I don't pay tax (salary) - would the money from bets put me into taxable income territory? I haven't researched much into betting so don't know any of the complex bits yet so could use some help.

Thanks :)

Yep that's the beauty of it, betting in the UK is tax free.

Sorry to jump on this one but just to clarify - as it's tax-free do I need to include it on my tax return at all or can I just omit it entirely?
