      This is now in the Coronavirus Assistance forum.

      Which is in Professional...

      At this time PC's advice on how to claim will be highly valuable to many who come here.

      If I see anyone mocking him about this at this time, they will incur my wrath.

      Please PC, if you could post a new thread regarding this I will sticky it. It's a frightening prospect for many at the moment.

        I'm dreading contacting my friends at exClientCo to check in on them as pretty much all of them have bleak prospects at the moment.

          It's not those who are furloughed who have a problem - it's those made redundant.

            Yep - I don't think Heathrow's 3rd runway is going to be an issue in the near future..

                  Might just be better linking to guides such as these.

                  Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) – overview for contractors

                  And noting paragraphs like this one...

                  Do limited company funds have a bearing on a claim for JSA?
                  It’s important to remember that your limited company’s business assets will be considered ‘capital’ and added to your personal assets and capital when you are means tested for your JSA claim. Unless the combined funds and capital held both in the business and personally fall below £16,000, you will not be able to claim JSA.

                  In addition, if you regularly receive dividends in large sums from your limited company, these and any cash in the business will be considered part of your savings limit of £16,000.

                  Because of this, Jobcentre Plus will want to see detailed company accounts and financial records, and may wish to access your accountant when carrying out eligibility assessments. Should you be operating as a sole trader or in a partnership, business assets will not be considered as part of your savings or capital.
                  It's going to be interesting how you prove to some drone in a job centre that the money you've got stashed for your taxes isn't capital........

                    They paused the mothballing of two terminals and just scaled them back. I think the logistics of moving the remaining airlines was too great at the moment but I reckon its still a possibility.

                    I'm waiting to hear that they've gone down to one runway... We joked in the office at the beginning of March about becoming Britain's second busiest single runway airport
