    I've seen that those going self employed have to fill out a weekly working hours sheet, and that you have to go in and review your situation after the first 10 weeks, and then after 26 weeks. Anyone know If this is correct?

    Well as I'm going to be self employed I won't have payslips to send in, only proof of payments into a bank and my invoices. I hope thats suffice.

    If you're working from home will they try and screw you for business rates, or doesn't it work that way for individuals?

    Default Re: esa and return to work credit

    I want to work at home too due to my mobility problems, but I was worried about the council trying to pin business rates on me. I've seen a few horror stories on the net that worried me.

    I'd be using an old bedroom too, (the upper floors of my house are in bad state of repair and only really fit for storage anyway) so I was thinking of putting up a table in there.

    I wonder If that would be okay with them?

    sadone my council just required me to fill a form in with what i would be doing, what hours i would be working, what i would have stored in the room for work use.

    I then got a visit from my housing officer and he asked me two questions, then said he was waiting for the planning deptment and the roads deptment to get back to him, but didnt think there was any problems.

    Business rates is payable if you use a room dedicated to work only, so as mine is a bedroom im fine.

    Best thing to do is check on your council website and see what info you can find out as all councils are different.

    Thanks for that. I have a feeling as It's a room full of my old clutter/movie collections that they may think It's already looking like an art room. I may just stay low until I can figure out how much I'd need to work away from home and how much at home.

    Why did they need to talk to planning and road? It's not like you were asking to build an extension or something.

    no problem, if you can referred to the shaw trust by the jobcentre they have a business advice bit, and once you have done your buisness plan you get a 500 grant and support for over 2yrears in total .

    I've read up on the rules and as I was self employed before I claimed esa and I'm intending to go back to what I originally did for 20 years but at a vastly reduced hours that I don't need to present a business plan. I hope thats still correct.
