What's Taxable Income?

Taxable income is the money you or your organisation makes that is ok to be taxed. For example, if you work as an employee selling ice cream icecream, the money your boss pays you for doing your job is taxable income. That means it’s income that’s taxable… so it’s income that the tax man can get a portion of. What’s an example of income that’s not taxable? If you made biscuits and friends wanted to order customised biscuits but you weren’t operating a business, but rather doing it as a hobby, then it’s likely that income would not be taxable income.
