Hi, I am new to this so please bear with me!

 

I am claiming HB and rent from a family member on a commercial basis. This is all ok with the local council. My landlord/family member is self employed and employees my husband for a few hours a week and will be able to give me a few hours a week from mid December. All goes through payroll and all above board. I did see that you can't claim if your landlord is a company and you work for them but if you can prove all above board then it's ok. Is being self employed different from being a company?? I don't want to do anything wrong. My husband pays tax and NI on his earnings. When I completed form HB1 it didn't mention this.

 

Thanks for any advice you can give me.

I don't know the answer to this, off hand. I'll try and check the regs later when I have time and come back to you on it.

not sure what help you want....

 

you have asked whether being self employed is different from being a company, there are various differences between the 2

 

if you are employed by your landlord (either a person or a company), there will be situations where you could be eligible for HB, and others were you might not be

 

a lot will depend upon the specific facts and background

 

my advice would just explain situation to LA, if they determine you are eligible, all good

 

if they decide you are not eligible, then appeal
