Who should use this calculator?

This calculator is for Etsy sellers. Whether you are a full-time Etsy seller, or you run a store on the side, this calculator will help you crunch the numbers and estimate how much tax you owe.

How will I be taxed as an Etsy seller?

There are two types of tax you might need to pay on the money you make as an Etsy seller. These are:

  • Income tax
  • National Insurance

Income Tax for Etsy sellers

If you make more than £1,000 selling goods on Etsy, you’ll likely income pay tax on it. This depends on the tax band you’re currently paying into.
If your total income is above the tax-free allowance, you’ll need to pay a percentage of your profits to the UK government.

The income tax bands for 2022 to 2023 are:

  • Tax free allowance: 0% of earnings (You earned between £0 - £12,570)
  • Basic rate: 20% of earnings (You earned between £12,571 - £50,270)
  • Higher rate: 40% of earnings (You earned between £50,271- £150,000)
  • Additional rate: 45% of earnings over £150,000

National insurance for Etsy sellers

You will also pay National Insurance Contributions (NICs) if you earn over a certain amount on Etsy. Depending on your profit, you might need to pay Class 2 and Class 4 National Insurance.

For Class 2, your tax is based on the number of weeks you’ve worked on your Etsy business.

  • For Class 2, you pay £3.05 a week if you earned more than £6,725 in profits

Class 4 is calculated in the same way as income tax. You pay the following on your profits:

  • Nothing on your first £11,909
  • 10.25% on any profit earned between £9,568 and £50,270
  • 3.25% on any profit earned above £50,270

Do keep in mind that the below numbers are based on the 2022/2023 tax year.

Do I need to submit a tax return as an Etsy seller?

If you earn more than £1,000 selling goods on Etsy, you’ll need to submit a tax return. This doesn’t necessarily mean you also need to pay tax. You can use the calculator to figure this out.
