Self-employed being left behind?
When your tap drips, your lights trip or your garden fencing blows over, you call your local tradesman to help out.
Often working from home, so unable to qualify for the business grant, and taking drawings rather than PAYE wages, have they fallen through the gap? Taking drawings doesn't mean they don't pay tax, it means they have a tax bill to pay twice a year or at the end of the year, rather than paying each month.
This could be because work doesn't flow evenly, and don't forget that the self employed don't earn if they are sick and don't get holiday pay. Many of these one man businesses have annual sales below the VAT threshold, to save you 20% added to your bill. It is time for the government to announce a series of measures for this group?
Are you self employed and work from home? What does March & April look like for you?
