    Default Invoicing in times of national mourning

    Things are a bit slow at clientco today so got reading an article about the plans that are in place for when HM shuffles off.
    This suggested people may get 'sent home early' on the day of departure, and offices may close for the day for the funeral.
    Any thoughts on the etiquette for such events? I presume we 'work from home' and invoice as usual?

    Depends on the client; I assume most will treat it as a public holiday similar to Good Friday.

    When Princess Anne first got married back in 1973 it was supposed to be a public holiday, including all schools being closed so the children of the nation could enjoy the happy event, but our school declared that they had a rugby fixture that day and it would be too complicated to rearrange the season, so we had to go to school as normal just so some lunkheads could run around a muddy field for a bit in the afternoon. They said they'd add an extra day on half term several months later. Total scam if you ask me

    Have you asked your accountant?

    I think even accountants will get the day off.

    Etiquette is nothing to do with it. If your client says "there's no work for you today" then you don't work. Unless you have the freedom to work Sundays and evenings as you please in which case you won't probably be accounting for every hour on a daily timesheet anyway.

    Its up to me if I work on the day the Queen dies and I doubt I'll care enough to lose a day of billable work.

    Of course, you have to be WFH as you "work on mission critical stuff" and then, in reality, you do sweet feck all day, because nobody is in

    Straight down the pub, of course.

    If you have shot her, I doubt invoicing will be the biggest of your worries.
    What is the difference between ignorance and indifference? Don't know and don't care.
