    Who's taking the second SEISS grant?

    I would never tell anyone what to do, all I look at is what is the risk and as far as I can see they will ask for it back. If you're taking the mick and can't prove you've lost money then there might be worse consequences. If you do claim, and I'm wrong I'll come visit you
  6. I remember that winter too. I lived in Kent (near Brands Hatch) and worked in Farnborough Hants. So M26 M25 A3 every day. I remember trying to get home one night on M25, when it was snowing heavily, weaving in and out or artics that were jack-knifing. I was mad thinking back... I was in a Golf GTi mk2 16v that had a Turbo Technics conversion, so pushing 200bhp through front wheels, I can still remember the feelings trying to keep momentum and timing getting past the sliding wagons. I should have just stayed at work and kipped their. I also had a few times where I had to winch the car up the dr

    Who's taking the second SEISS grant?

    I can prove I’m £30 a month down for sure as it’s an office that I clean monthly It used to be £86 a month inside and out. They stopped having the insides cleaned in March so I reduced their bill by £30. They pay in the bank. The others that I’m down by pay cash. I gained a £320 a month in April so my takings are actually up but I’m still £165 down on what I would be if it weren’t for corona. I wouldn’t say I need it as I’m up but I am eligible. Battling with my conscience
  8. Exactly! But some don't listen even when you point it out to them. Nothing has happened in the past 12 years so why should it happen now? If the weather is extremely cold then he doesn't fill his van or go out. His customer base in very much inland where temperatures are colder than on the coast. We are on the North East coast so tend to get away with extremely cold weather as we are influenced by the North Sea (except for 2010/2011.) That same North Sea also influences our summers, so we tend to get colder weather where those west of the A1 have warmer weather. The coldest I have ev

    If you have a doubt why not claim it, as long as you can prove you're losing some money then all they can do is ask for it back. They will have to clarify significant because as far as I'm concerned £20 is significant. One thing for certain if you don't and happens they'll not let you back date it.

    None taken mate. You are 100% correct it's just my opinion. HMRC won't define 'significant' so they can decide later

    All I would say is this 3rd grant has changed from a period point of view as well. So gov have said only claim if you feel you will have made a significant loss over the whole tax year, not just the period Nov to Jan. You have to decide what a significant loss is, but it has to be over the whole year. So if your year end accounts are down on last year, claim it. If they aren't don't.
  13. Yeh you would be on more surer ground than me. Im literally just two little houses down and an estate agent. I didnt get much anyway so will leave it.

    Jubilee clips will do the same thing for a fraction of the price
  15. No disrespect intended, but thats just an opinion. I think hmrc should define "significant". I haven't done my month end yet, but anticipate maybe 20% down which any business prior to the virus would describe as a significant downturn in turnover. I have several big commercial jobs on hold still, the pubs and hotels round here might not reopen with the current restrictions and the shops i do have been closed. I've also had 2 franchisees unable to work due to self isolating. I think 20% is enough to claim, but thats just my opinion...
  16. When softwashing a house with leaded windows we mask up the glass and any electrical items like alarm boxes door locks key safes etc tk prevent the hype affecting them , this should be standard practice by any competent firm offering softwashing what ever method is used , if you dint follow theses principals and there is a problem your insurance won’t pay out .

    I saw my accountant today and asked him if I should claim the grant as I weren’t sure if I should as I’m only down £165 per month plus quite a few shops during the latest lockdown. He said if I’m not sure about claiming then don’t claim. The revenue will be checking claimants thoroughly...... eventually

    I wasn't going to but as all they're bothered about is London I thought sod em. Will claim it and leave it in the bank. If they want it back they'll have to ask nicely. My turnover is higher than last year but, pre Covid, I had a new £10k a year contract in place to start April so without that I'd be down. Still losing £120 a month on not doing 2 pubs and with other Care Home jobs put back, some internal work etc etc I'm down circa £250 a month minimum.
  19. Accounts?? What are they?
  20. Could be a H&S issue if someone slips on any ice that's formed from his 'waste'!

    That's the big question. Maybe look at your losses in relation to what the gov would pay you. i.e. if you have lost 50% of your income and the gov will give you 80% of your income then you would be making a 'profit'. If you have lost 80% or more of your income then the payment would bring you back to normal income. There isn't a definition of 'significant' but be sensible, if you can show losses and you need the money then apply. If you have losses and can get by maybe don't claim. It's up to you really but if HMRC come knocking would you be confident to justify your definition of 's

    I totally agree with you. I have an Nlite one GRP pole I cut down for bungalows but they need to move with the times
  23. It must be. It runs down the road and to the drain at the bottom of the cul de sac. Sad really as the neighbours view it as a waste of precious water. Not only that but it runs down the road past a row of car's front drivers doors, so numerous people get into their cars with wet shoes.
  24. But what is significant? I hate losing any profit and see it all as significant...
  25. Unger trad gear is very good but not been impressed with there wfp stuff very heavy poles and brushes , and not very stiff , but will be interesting to see what the latest incarnation of wfp is like
