Do I need to register as a micro entrepreneur?

· Viewed 485 times

I have retired to France,  and lived here since July 2018. Our joint income is under the annual allowance.  Last year I did some freelance work for some of my old clients.  My questions are - do I need to register as a micro entrepreneur? Can I add this income (about £5k) to my income declaration and not set up a micro entrepreneur? We are still under the annual joint allowance even with these fees added in. If I do set up as a ME and pay social taxes - in theory this is go towards my pension, health cover etc which I am already benefiting from.  So I need some clear guidance as to the best way forward please.  Don’t want to defraud anyone but likewise don’t want the hassle of setting up a company for such a small amount if it it is not necessary.
