Personally I do not use Skrill as not only do I enjoy \"risk-free matched betting\" but I am also self employed. As such I need to be able to prove my income & expenditure for all my current accounts each tax year... So despite the extra work this entails I instead create a betting portfolio to track where my money is going and my anticipated Vs. actual profit. The portfolio also takes into account the 2-5 days where my funds will be tied up in heading back to my bank\'s building society, which I do not find a problem due to it being part of the plan.

Like I say, though this takes extra time as I have to keep documented my bets and cash flow I don\'t have to disclose a further current account (Skrill) to pass my tax for the year, so in a way it also keeps things simpler. Besides, who can argue with having clearly laid out books as a record for the future being beneficial? I would do this even if I did use Skrill! :) So I believe there is no need to rush to the creation of a Skrill account, particularly if you are still only placing \"free bets\" for sig-up rewards.

Don\'t get me wrong though sometimes I do wish I had Skrill... Lets say I was betting on horse races for example in various markets throughout the course of a day I would probably need it - thankfully I just stick to a few matches a week for now so it is perfectly fine without.

Hope this is useful to some one, Emily ~

Hi emily, Why do you have to prove your betting transactions? Betting income is tax free and is not required on tax returns.
