Anyone own a business on here? The site we are working on is closed so looking like I will have to apply for government help. Anyone done it yet?

The loan scheme launched yesterday, the grants for paying 80% of wages etc come in at end of April but back dated to mid-March (links at the bottom of this press release):

Whole things fucked

My wife works for the police so is going into the office. She said that the whole building was full yesterday, which is never the case, and there were no provisions for distancing. Everyone is sat at a desk that is less than a metre apart, let alone two.

I am concerned because if her colleagues are re-assigned and then have to go out on patrol, they will be coming into more contact with people and then coming back to the office, before going home. As she is a civilian she won't be re-assigned so at least there is a slight silver lining.

This is my concern. Apparently because im asthmatic (although controlled) I fall into the 'risk' category so I dont want her catching it off some cretin who couldn't bear not to go out and then bring it home. Nightmare

Yeah they have raised it with superiors but I think the ruling was made for the vast majority of the public and then essential workers may not necessarily have been considered.

If I think when I went to into the Coop/Post Office yesterday and the staff were handling cash, pens, bank cards, not to mention the stuff you fucking bought in the first place!

If you are talking about the retention scheme then they are ‘working night and day’ to get the portal working.

I own a business, am the director but pay myself min wage and then the rest in divs.
So annoyingly I’ll only be able to claim 80% of min wage. And that’s if they allow directors to be classed as furloughed staff.

Yeah apparently wont be available until end of April, also sceptical with regards to what hoops you have to jump through to get staff's salaries 80% paid, not holding my breath, but hope they actually deliver.

Who’d have thought that paying yourself divs rather than a salary might prove a hinderance when seeking help from the tax payer

Lol.
I pay corporation tax (20%) income tax (20%) NI (9%) and dividend tax (7%)

I think I pay my fair share of tax mate.

Seemingly deliberately minimising national insurance contributions, the very aspect of the welfare system designed to support the sick and unemployed.

The lack of self awareness Laughing out loud
