All good, though, but that'll no doubt be the last of the handouts.

...So problem now is the £2/hour shifts :cry:

To be fair, I have had a couple of reasonable shifts, but most of the pubs, restaurants and hotels here still shut. On the plus side, cab numbers still well down on pre-Covid.

As well as some part-time/semi-retired drivers giving up, some have been doing Deliveroo and Amazon work during lockdown, so while some will no doubt be back, I suspect others won't be.

Suspect it'll take at least another year until we find out what the new norm actually looks like :-|

simples your turnover figures this year and last :roll:

Don't want to go through all this again, but would advise against a career change to audit or tax compliance etc :-s

But if all HMRC wanted was the stuff you would normally record or submit to them anyway, why would they specifically ask claimants to "keep a record of evidence of how your business has been adversely affected"? [-(

I suspect it's aimed at less obvious cases like tradesmen and people who worked from home anyway, and not at more self-evident claimants like taxi drivers. But you never know 8-[


In the original guidance it did say that you had to record any payments in your accounts.

The SEISS grant payments? Yes, they have to be recorded because they're part of taxable income.

But my point was about turnover and expenditure that would normally would be recorded anyway, so I don't understand your point.
