My client is the sole director/shareholder of her company, but she has employees. The company sells goods.
She is on jury service and has been asked to fill in a claim form. it states:
For jurors who are company directors, ...."I certify that I normally earn £ gross per dayand that I have lost/will lose that amount each day."
As she has employees who will cover for her, in terms of processing orders while she is away, whilst I have no doubt she will come back to an admin nightmare on her return, I suspect there may be little or no drop in turnover, so can we claim anything? Or should we just put in a claim for her daily salary (which is quite low) and then not pay her from the company for these days?
Obviously don't want to claim if it is not allowed but the wording is very vague.
