  1. In 2013 I started claiming HB, both myself and my husband are self employed. We had only just set the business up in 2012 following him being made redundant and me having a baby. For the first 3 tax years the business made a loss (2010, 2013, 2014). In January 2017 they wanted to reassess us again , I made up the books (I was doing this anyway for the Jan 31st deadline) and found we had made a small profit, which was reduced by the tax losses brought forward. I then also made up the next lot of accounts when the new tax year started in April.
  2. Hi all, I wrote a book last year and it was picked up by a publisher and was published in February of this year 2014 and has been doing pretty well, it is available worldwide. I run a Facebook page which went crazy popular and it has now got over 100,000 likes. It currently has about 125,000 likes. I was approached by a publisher to write a book on the subject of Wicca which I did. I have been on benefits since being made redundant last March 2013. When my book was published I had a case worker who I saw regularly to help me get back into work and I asked her about the book and wha
  3. I work or should I say did work for a private ambulance service that deducted damages to an ambulance that occurred 6 months ago on hospital grounds and when i was not with the vehicle itself. I invoiced my monthly pay and when received they deducted 379.08 from the total but did not tell me why. The next day i received an invoice for the damages to the vehicle. ~ Can they just deduct wages without my knowledge ?? ~ Can i claim the money back and how ?? I get married in 60 days and the owner said with a smerk "dont spend to much on a solicitor will you as you will need that for
  4. Advice desperately needed as on Friday my husbands employer has stated that he is no longer going to pay him the rate he has been paid for the past year and is dropping it down to just 50.00 per day . He works as a part time garage door fitter and has a contract with his employer to work two days a week . He started 4 years ago and has had pay rises since then and the pay for the last year has been 80,00 per day. The rest of the week my husband was employed on on a self employed basis and would submit an invoice for any repairs and extra fitting that be may be booked for on other da
  5. Hello, Well the annual SLC hell arrived - deferment. I sent everything off in good time, recorded delivery, email, fax and also telephoned as every year they deny receipt so thought this year would be extra careful. I'm self employed and like many people at the moment, I on paper made a small loss overall in the previous tax year. I thought at least I don't have to pay the SLC. But no. They have rejected the application to defer on the basis that "the law states you need a minimum of XX per week to live on" and stating they will not defer my loans! I've communicated in writ
  6. Hi folks. Can anyone help and also maybe put this in the right place? My ex bought a business 2-years ago as a going concern and the price agreed of £19,000 was 'lock stock and barrel'. The business was VAT registered, my ex was not. She's just received a letter from the previous owner's solicitor stating that, he has had to pay VAT on the sale and because of that they are claiming £2,829 inc interest from her. Should she pay this? Are they right to claim it? Many thanks, Stu
  7. Hi I am a contractor and I work self employed. I travel around the country visiting various work sites which usually means I have to stay in accommodation for that week. I worked mainly in Swansea for just under a year, travelling from my home address which is also my buisness address at weekends. The tax man is not allowing my mileage claim from my home address to the work site in Swansea then returning to my home address, staying in temporary accomodation through the week. He is saying that the travel fom my home address and work site then back again are personal miles. I am disputing th
  8. Hi All I'm self-employed and have been for 4 years, my husband and I put in a claim for Housing Benefit & Council Tax Benefit in January this year as work for me was slowing down and the company my husband was one of the directors of had gone into administration. As work was slow I decided to do a Diploma course to make good of the extra time I had, this course cost £1500 and was to take 10-15 weeks part-time at home mostly. The Council have now had 5 S/E forms and done numerous checks on my husband and I, we are and have been for some time living on nothing more than our Tax/Child
