I am only just registering for a tax number and completing the IT77, but under the section Income Details, it states to declare taxable income. I'm self employed, so I'll be making manual contributions, which to my knowledge is minus expenses. So, my question is, in this section of the form, should I declare my gross income, or only my income after business expenses?

Taxable income is after business expenses so you would declare the net amount.
