    Tough to hear, mate. I'm sure you've thought of it - but could you get a man cave at the bottom of the garden? Mine took a weekend to go up and it's been worth it's weight in gold - absolute sanctuary. Pretty sure that there will be companies still selling and supplying them...

    I reckon that there will be huge incentives for people and companies to pay into pension funds which will top up the coffers (not coughers).

    Get him to email his company, saying that he feels unwell and is considering self isolating...making sure he gets a written response from them of what he should do. I reckon there will be a fair few unfair dismissal tribunals once this is all over!

    I think one of the up sides (?) is that it will hit every country. Everyone is going to be fvcked...so there will be a level(ish) playing field. There is going to be a major recalibration of lots of things in the coming months and years

    I'm a bit disappointed he didn't name check me, tbh...

    Still not entirely clear on what people in our position are able to claim. Like you, I pay myself £719 a month..so my self assessment only shows that. How do they work out what dividends have been paid?
  7. Just watched this, as you mentioned it above... What an amazing story - the guy is relentless! Really well made - highly recommend

    Genuine, non political question (would appreciate non abusive, apolitical input, please)... There are quite a few people who have strong views on the governments handling of this crisis. Where do you think we stand in relation to other countries? Are there places that have handled it better/worse? Is it fair to compare different countries responses to how we have dealt with it, due to differences in age, density of population (yeah, you know what I mean)! and differing healthcare systems? Or are there too many variables to draw comparisons?

    Nightmare, isn't it. There has to be something on dividends as well, or even what has been declared for Corporation Tax... I think they'll look around and see what other countries are doing.

    Just tell them you make £300k a year and try and live of 80% of that...we'll back you up! Seriously though, I was listening to the radio earlier and someone said exactly this - they've just started up and don't have any accounts to show. You're not alone. I get annoyed with people saying 'the government should do this or that' - there are so may variables that it's a nightmare to try and get everyone covered. Fingers crossed that the magic money tree man, Sunak, that no-one had hear of a month ago, comes through with the goods.

    I think they are heading down the same route as Norway with this. Which I believe is an average of last 3 years declared income. Will be different for sole traders and individuals that are also trading as limited companies.

    Mate - I have no idea if the below is of any help, but we made a definite decision to structure the first week or so. Otherwise it would be too tricky to get the kids into doing anything other than sitting in front of a fvcking screen all day (which is what I want to do)! This is for the 12 year old, with work sent from school or with stuff that we have found for them. The 6 year old follows suit but with a bit of a change to the subjects and more arty type stuff and story writing. Wife has also subscribed to Muzzy (?) language lessons for the younger one. We’ve kind of stuck to it (this is our second week) and it’s worked a lot better than expected. The Joe Wicks thing now starts the day perfectly, and we’ve binned a couple of the lessons to go out for a walk or play in the garden. But the kids know that there is a structure there. We also allow flexibility and swaps to encourage, say, extra guitar over RS, geography, etc. From an outside point of view, it might look a bit over the top, but for our kids this was definitely the way to go. I’m sure you know what would work best for yours. Nobody has killed anyone here yet, which I’m taking as a positive. 👍 (And no, I don’t know why washing hands is only on there once a day)!!

    Nope. Do you honestly think that the Govt could draw a plan of all businesses, offshoots, niche business, multi discipline sites, b2b's, etc? Impossible.
