    It IS legal to work cash in hand.

    I was cash in hand as a nanny. It meant I took care of my taxes rather than the families I worked for having to deal with it all.

    But I agree with FL that this amount is so negligible the tax office wouldn't even bother. It's $30 for 4 hours a week.

    That depends on whether you are declaring it. From my experience most people do not declare cash in hand. Infact I have never heard the term 'cash in hand' be used by someone who is declaring that income. Failure to declare income when claiming welfare is fraud.

    OP: are you planning on declaring your work and income gained from assisting the family friend?

    I think you are wildly overreacting.

    Technically OP is not employed by this man so will be actually receiving a gift for helping out , monetary gifts don't need to be taxed or effect centrelink so It's not going to be a problem

    Thanks so much for the patronising comment. Yes I am a grown adult and clearly the term "pocket money" was used to explain the tiny amount of cash I was paid helping a family friend out. As per my previous comments (and the whole point of this thread) I was looking for a quick fix to get me out of some serious financial trouble. I have two children (one of whom has been in and out if hospital, which is where some of these unexpected bills have arisen) I work the only two days I can. At the time I wrote the thread I needed some help to get me through a rough patch (which I have previously explained). This is not a long term concern and as I have previously stated, we will actually have money left over each month.
    Please don't be concerned about me "looking over my shoulder", as I stated, this situation is a personal agreement between myself and a family friend. It is not an ongoing contract, it has so far happened once. Obviously if I could earn any extra cash I would. I am a working mum with two young children and I'm not long from coming off mat leave. My DH is working 5 days and works some Saturdays (NOT cash in hand).

    This thread has been reopened with some lovely advice. Things in my personal situation, in large part, to some great advice I received on here, have improved.

    Anyway, if you care to read over the thread again, most of your questions have already been explained.

    Sheesh!

    You have to be kidding me!

    I cleaned house for a mate when I first started working to help save for a trip, he paid me $50 a week. It never even occurred to me to declare it nor was I looking over my shoulder.

    This has to be one of the biggest over reactions I've seen on BH.

    Good on you OP

    Sorry - I am 100% serious when I say I have NEVER heard the term 'cash in hand' be used by someone intending to pay tax. And from the OP's response, I think my interpretation is spot on with this particular scenario.
