That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Me too, even though i appreciate the work they do.

I just think there must be a better way of showing our appreciation

My Mrs is front line NHS and seems to find it all a bit embarrassing.

If you live in an apartment block I sorta get it.

But not across a British street

I guess the thinking is, if a business is tgat new that you have never paid a penny of tax then you can’t really expect the HMRC to come in 

So would they consider if you had a job and paid taxes?

I've been freelance 2.5 years, dunno what im due, so hoping @Biggish Dave has me covered, which I'm sure he has

The big grey area is what happens to dividends in the income reckoning. I watched a webinar today from our training provider, the tax expert is trying to get clarification from the government as to the best way forward. Rest assured I’ll be searching for answers because it affects me too

So you’re self employed then? Sole trader ?

"I didn't pay myself in dividends to pay a lower rate of income tax, I did it because Chris Custard made me."

Aye alreet. 

You have to pay corporation tax mate,  19% on any profit and Income tax pal just like employed and self employex people. You get a tax free dividend of 2k a year, which works out at about £600 more in your pocket, but you have to either be a basic accountant or pay someone to do your accounts. It's not a tax dodge.

That was unexpected. Popped my head out to see if this "Clap for Carers" thing would actually happen, and it did.

I went out and had a clap with the missus (she's NHS as well so said ta). Felt like shouting "Come on!" After it though like you would at the match 😂

It was a very solidarity feeling

Had the same feeling. Very uplifting. We should do this more often. Fireworks going off now too.

To be fair I know it's not as advantageous as it used to be. Dont you avoid the NI though as well?

This virus is certainly nailing a few folk

No fucker begging now outside Morrisons, Co-op, train station, every set of lights near the centre, etc

No unruly folk outside the Balmoral at 10am

Street crime is down 

Tax dodging self employed being torn a new one

No gangs of kids on street corners

Prostitution is fucked

Rivers etc being cleaned

And Jol gets an extra 12 months to save up his £100  😉💣

 

Well played Boris.......✌💪🇬🇧

Wonder if beggars and traffic light monitors are going to get an 80% furlough. :unknw:

The advantage of dividends isn’t huge. Yes you avoid NI but over and above £2k you pay tax at 7.5% whereas an employed person pays NI at 12%

A company director though doesn’t get sick pay, holiday pay etc and generally has to  take more risks than employees

Right - I'm just going to say that I find this applauding health workers thing a bit cringey.

In retrospect - I'm a wanker. It was actually a lovely touch. Didn't think anyone would really do it apart from on telly!

I’d completely missed this. No idea it was going on. Got hauled outside by Mrs and step-daughter and was bemused by the sound. Fair play to all. Amazing sound of the clapping

Well I thought my neighbours would see me as a dick clapping on my own, but was pleasantly surprised.  I love my neighbours now, clapping and waving to each other has done us all a bloody world of good.  I think there’s only me my in my little road working through this, most are OAP’s, but that was uplifting.  Breightmet made noise, fireworks the lot 🙂

I can understand it might feel a bit odd, but for folk looking in at you guys, it's not easy to say thanks.

Perhaps not a traditionally British thing to do.

Completely forgot about it though, as we were watching what I think is the last episode of waking the dead! :)

Wondered why fireworks went off as the program was finishing.
