Its a non-government amendment, NOT law, and unlikely to be law.

Rebecca, he said in Parliament this morning that they are consulting with various bodies, do you know who? I assume whoever it is will also ask for clarification for Directors as mine are all furloughing themselves.

So none of these Directors will be answering emails from you or claiming any support payments, paying suppliers, chasing customers, trying to find some business, checking the business bank.....etc etc??

I did not say that I had advised them, say they were one man bands or whether or not they would be working. By the time they complete the form at the end of April we will know the answer, I have not advised either way except to say similar things to you.

(Don’t treat me like an idiot by the way, I have sent one to check with their lawyer and the other does their own payroll, but they have completely closed.)

I don’t know, we can’t discount it fully. Sorry a bit sensitive as I replied to one to say I hope they will still sign the accounts. I guess they have other things to worry about.

This will hinge on the word 'working'

Lawyers will have a field day later; think IR35 and 'mutuality', 'control' etc etc

I think they will end up letting them apply for universal credit. However, this will cause a problem if they have a partner who is working.

They already can apply for UC, there seems to be quite some confusion over this with clients, a few have asked me how they now claim for UC so they can get £94 a week! - answer the same way you always have done !
I think there will be something more, but I am sure we can all understand the complexities of quantifying how much they should be paid.
