My client's mother needs a carer. Rather than pay for carers to come in, my client has given up her job and moved in with Mum to look after her. Mother has agreed to pay her.
How would you do this? Should Mum set up a paye scheme (seems a bit expensive and ott for the family).
Or could mother just make gifts to the daughter each month which happen to be similar to the salary she has given up? (IHT is not an issue). Siblings are all happy with the arrangement and would not challenge any such payments.
How have others dealt with this?
