    The funny thing is that most contractors were ready to tough it out as usual until they realised that someone else was getting something

    Utterly laughable and really quite pathetic to suggest that the gov’t should offer handouts for dividends not received.
    Perhaps they could just bailout our companies.

    Agreed. If anyone manages to get 80% of £700 or whatever it'll be a bonus.

    125,000 people who understand nothing and are likely to screw things up for everyone else.

    Mind you IPSE didn’t understand the issues either so it’s not surprising

    I get the argument. And at the moment, I don't need the money and would rather it go to those that do. I'll take the mortgage holiday and consider that a bump.

    It's not like I was hoping to get any clients in March anyway.

    There will be times when we don't win, just as with sick pay. You must take the rough with the smooth.

    If you disagree: Petition . Small Ltd Company Directors to get Government support like the Employed and Self Employed . Change.org

    This scheme is to cover workers renumeration for their work not shareholders and investors profits, these two roles are normally totally separate unless you have a PSC.

    You dont want to tell me do you that when the taxman comes you declare some of the money as shareholders profit - a reward for investing in profitable a company - because the tax is less on it, but when you need taxpayers help you want to suddenly think of the same money as your renumeration for the work.

    If this money is a wage it goes to wage expenses in your accounting system and paid out as wage. It cannot be dividend from profits when you tax it, but wage expense when you need to claim against it - your accounting records clearly tells you what this money is, there is no way around it.

    Sorry, but government doesnt have money to cover all the investment gains, if they would cover your dividend income, they should cover everyone elses past dividend income and capital gains from stocks on the stock exchange.

    Nice spot and certainly answers many of the questions. Still doesn't help those that are asking what help there is but have been on the bench for awhile.
