SEISS

SEISS grant

Didn't find your answer?

Very first question on the return form is. Have you worked for a business or an agency in the last year?

As a self employed bricklayer I work for a few different business’s and agencies. I work for them all as self employed so i ticked the yes. 

I meet al criteria but have been told cause I clicked yes to the first question I’m classed as employed. 

This is leaving me not eligible for the claim. I can’t get furloughed cause I don’t have an employer and I can’t get a bounce back loan cause HMRC are telling the banks I’m employed.

Iv gone from a self employed bricklayer to a employee with no employer.

Why are you adding new content which is almost the same as the post you have already made? But still not actually asked a Q?

https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/any-answers/seiss-eligibility

This is an Accountants forum for Accountants, so those of us who are not self employed havent seen the questions, but surely there is a question after that 1st one that asks other questions which will lead to HMRC understanding that you were s/e. Sounds like you have fudged up the application.

The only difference between this and the other post is that this one is less clear. The return form you're talking about is the self assessment tax return, not the SEISS application. I'm surprised the tax returns haven't been rejected as the information in the employment section couldn't be matched to payroll data submitted under RTI.

My question is why has it taken this claim to fined out my returns have been going through as employed instead of self employed for 4 years. The figures I have put in should raise questions that it not from an employee?

Are you sure that is what you did? Where did you put your expenses and CIS suffered as these are on the self employment pages?

And did HMRC repay the CIS deducted from your invoices? Or are you actually an employee and you get a payslip and received a P60 at the end of the year?

I have heard that agency work and being eligible for furlough has been a problem.

I haven’t had a p60 in years. Once I clicked yes for the first question it just asked me to put in all company’s I had worked for. What I got paid etc.

They are self employed and put their gross income, expenses and CIS deducted in the self-employment section. You have missed out on claiming expenses and on an NI record for those years which will affect you eligibility for state pension. But you have probably saved a lot in NI too.

Also you don’t put the amount you got paid but the gross amount you invoice. Really surprised like others that this hasn’t been picked up.

The dangers of diy!

It does state very clearly on the tax return which is the employment section and which is the self employment section.

Having lots of jobs wouldn't flag anything. I have one client who has lots of employed jobs and is also SE.

But something should have flagged up re the CIS of you didn't fill anything in for SE.

Get an Accountant to sort it.
