I work freelance in television. Since August of last year I have experienced such a slow down that I had to make a claim for Universal Credit in November. However the amount of money I receive is leaving me penniless to the point where I had to turn to a food bank last week and I believe if the rent is not paid by the end of this month I will be homeless. The reason for the small amount I receive from Universal Credit is HMRC is telling the DWP that I receive a wage of £833 per month from my limited company which I'm not.
I contacted HMRC and they advised me to tell my accountant to send an IYA form. My accountant, who's fee I have been unable to pay due to lack of work, has not replied to my emails. Without the IYA form I am going to be left destitute. I emailed and had no reply. I understand the fee must be paid but if I don't have a home to look for work from how will I clear my debts?
Thanks and sorry for taking up your time.
