I have a client at the end of his tether and I fear he is falling into depression. He has had no work for nearly a year but not for want of trying. He is struggling financially and has had no help from the benefits office.
He was previously contracted under CIS and paying class 2 NI and all other taxes as they fell due.
I have very little (read none except that which I've read from the internet!) experience of benefits and how to qualify for them.
Have any of your clients had experience of this? Any advice would be very welcome.
