I agree with Mark that any earnings earn on top should be declared; working cash in hand undeclared is a moral and ethical issue (oh, and it can be illegal!). What you earn before paying tax will be on your payslip/P45 etc. That figure is usually reached if in full time employment.
I enquired about this subject recently and had some professional advice from a local company. The 'direct.gov' website is very useful if you haven't tried it yet.
If this is on ones own time, dose the boss need to know? is it any of the bosses bizzness? Yes the government need to know for tax and all that, But i don't see why one should let the boss know all your bizzzzzzz. one may tell out of curticy, yes but one may never know when or if the boss could be or turn into a royal stroppy so & so
