Rent out your car – for £3,200 a year

Join in with the UK's growing "sharing economy" and you could end up quids in!

The average British household could make £7,803 each year by renting out their own stuff – such as cars, homes, driveways and spare rooms, reckons easyCar Club.

The company – a peer-to-peer car rental service – says the average British household owns at least one car which is parked, unused, for an average of 2.69 days each week.

Renting the car out for that unused time could yield £3,200 each year.

Meanwhile, more than half of UK households say they have a spare room which could be rented for an average £3,000 for 12 months.

One week to go until the tax year ends ...

You've only got one more week to take advantage of the tax allowance for the current 2013-14 tax year. It ends on 5 April, next Saturday.

To help investors beat the tax-year deadline, Jason Hollands, of Bestinvest, has a series of practical tips.

First, act fast to make your Isa contribution, but don't hurry to select your investments. "A rushed decision on which asset class, market or fund to invest in could backfire," he warns.

Then consider utilising your capital gains tax allowance. "You can crystallise gains from selling assets of up to £10,900 this tax year without having to pay any tax," he points out. "The CGT allowance is often overlooked."

To avoid any problems if you invest at the last minute, invest online. If you do use the post, use the Special Delivery service or a courier to ensure any paperwork beats the tax deadline.
