    Default Governments Wage cover for businesses: Limited Company discussion

    You might have seen the massive news about Government stepping in to support business by paying upto 80% salary OR max of £2500

    Discussion thread about how Limited Company Directors/employees can get help on this.

    I can’t see how they would. If you have no work for that reason, perhaps, but most people pay a small salary only, so it would be peanuts at best. If you think this is license to get 7.5k of free money...

    Pay yourself a salary of £2.5k for a month, and then make a claim because you are out of contract.

    Sit back and watch Netflix.

    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    Most here pay a small salary - Yes indeed 100%

    But most permietractors I know pay themselves between 15K and 30K for some strange reason (herd mentality)

    Because someone told them it makes an ir35 investigation less likely.

    Because if you apply for some forms of credit, they want to know your "guaranteed" income, you know, excluding bonuses and other *non guaranteed* things... like dividends.

    I've never had an issue getting credit.

    I even sorted out a remortgage myself with no difficulty when one of the recommended mortgage advisors on here dropped the ball.

    Indeed. In fact applying for credit as a contractor has nothing to do with a PAYE salary unless you’re lying about your status.
    Day rate and trading history is sufficient.
