    Budge up the bench please. Project canned due to lack of finance. So an interesting furlough chat with accountants tomorrow. 80% of £750 - is it really worth the effort?....

    On the bright side, once you find a new client, they’ll be much more OK with WFH than most of them used to be

    Sad to hear but at least there is sunshine!

    Many people are getting by with less than that so yes.

    Don't forget that whilst furloughed you can't look for a new contract as you are not allowed to do any revenue generating activity for the company.

    Looking doesn't generate revenue. It's actually a cost to the business.

    Once you've won the work it becomes revenue generating.
