No political discussion in this topic. That is complaining about a country, a politician, a party and/or its voters, etc

The 5% who are ineligible are those who get their income from different revenue sources (I think) and earn on average over £200k. I wouldn't be surprised in PL footballers fall into this category - ie on the payroll at the club but also have their own Ltd company for image rights, endorsements etc. 

 

I think those who make more than £50k profit will just get the same as those who earn £50k. ie that's the max payout of £2500 per month or whatever it is. Similar to companies being given £2500 per employee to cover wages.

 

I might be wrong but it seems fair enough to me. I guess it means if you're well paid (either as an employee or self employed) and can't work, you'll still get £2500 a month to live on in the short term plus option of mortgage holiday etc.

 

Just means everyone gets something apart from that 5% 

 

I could well be making all this up though :thumbup:

Ah, ok 

 

What if you are working but earning less than the average per month of your last three years ? 
 

Bear in mind that I’m taking your representations as gospel 😉

Good point.

 

I didn't see it but I got the gist on the news.

 

What if you sell online (like me) and sales drop off a cliff (me again)?  

 

Do you qualify?  Surely you can't continue to limp along and also claim it.  Should I mothball the business?  I dunno. 

 

Very confused.  More than normal.

Then I think you get exactly what your average is (ie you don't profit from this!)

 

Similarly as en employee the gov give up to £2500 per employee but if you earn £1500 a month you'd still get that.

 

I think!

Well 80% of it ........ and I read somewhere that the employer would receive your pension contribution and employers NI as part of the 80% so this 80% once paye, both NI’s and pension have been deducted may look a lot less generous that some employees are expecting. BUT the idea is that this encourages business’ not to make you redundant rather than re imbursing you for the majority of your wages

View the BBC News online site report of the statement made. Towards the bottom of the item it says..

 

'The scheme does not cover people who only became self-employed very recently - the chancellor said they would have to look to the benefits system for support.'

How recent is that? Weeks, months, year?

Presumably if I earn 2500 or more before the virus but only 1500 now I would get 1000 ?

I can’t say for certain but I’m not sure you qualify if you’re still earning?

he did say right at the start "self employed who are affected by the corona virus".

 

So yeah, if you're still earning your usual wedge, or close to it, then you don't need government help - I think

Just to reiterate... anyone on here who works for the NHS, works in anything to do with the education, is a social worker, part of the army, any emergency service or ANY other form of work that is currently making sacrifices to save lives/make ours better... thank you.

Not for a second am I putting myself in the above jobs

im a sales representative for a small packaging company,I’ve been taken off the road and am working in the factory instead of telling lies all day.Bloody hell its hard graft with 3 of us in the factory,one my lad who is at college,instead of 5 and obviously Me and him are amateurs,im doing 18/19000 steps a day and I hurt all over.

We do loads for the medical industry and it’s gone barmy.

Today I’ve had emails virtually begging us to stay open of which we will ,saying how much they need us and one from national defence saying similar and to copy and keep copies if we are pulled over by the Police to say we are part of a critical supply chain.

There was me thinking it was just Cardboard and stratocell foam.Never thought such an uninteresting industry can suddenly be looked upon with such importance.

We are putting these industries to the front in production.

Strange times indeed.
