Prior to HMRC’s investigation into eBay and Amazon traders they were investigating plumbers.
One such plumber who evaded £88,000 of tax has recently been sentenced to four months in jail, suespended for 12 months as detailed in this post on AccountingWeb.
I mention it just to stress the seriousness of this sort of fraud. With eBay traders it’s easy to start off trading as a tax free hobby and slowly have it morph into a professional trade over time.
