If she doesn't get used to the boredom now, how's she going to cope with the next 40-odd years?
When I was training, the books were kept in pigeonholes along a wall. A sellotape ball and a points system was all me and my fellow trainee needed for a Friday afternoon....

Was there actually "no tax due" or was there a liability covered by CIS deductions? I suspect he would also need to show that he hadn't received any penalty notifications in the whole 4-year period, as otherwise he could hardly say he thought everything was OK. Worth a try though, nothing ventured...

Having been a "home visitor" in the early years, it's taken a long time to get those people to come to the office, so I'd reiterate the comments about getting new prospects to come to you if simply to avoid making a rod for your own back. I now only visit a few large clients and those where they'd have difficulty coming to me (elderly and a few non-drivers), and try to make appointments for when I'm on my way to or from the office.

Sorry, but why don't they simply pay by Direct Debit? Instructions in back of payslip book, simples...

Surely the purpose of the subbie paying for the use of the Company car whilst carrying out work for the main Contractor is precisely to differentiate from the employee-employer relationship they are trying to avoid?
The Contractor is leasing the car to the subbie, so the subbie's costs are treated exactly as if he was leasing it from elsewhere.
How the insurance cover is arranged, and whether sub-leasing is in breach of the lease terms, are separate matters!

Managed to cancel IRIS by not renewing, but 12-month notice for AE is costing me more than Brightpay for the year! History on IRIS unavailable once subs expire.
A really good move IMHO, and as I've said to various salesmen from IRIS since (they keep ringing), I just cannot see how their business model will survive at their prices except by inertia of existing client base.

Does the £130 include taxi services, telephone, cleaning up after mates have been round etc etc? If not, explain that the sums include back rent for the past 18 years.

Thanks, but I've just switched software..
I've just moved from IRIS to Brightpay, and there isn't a "not eligible" button to press, so presumably the "eligible" EPS from IRIS still stands? I can't untick from software I can no longer use, if you follow! I may of course have missed something in Brightpay, as it's new to me.

How silly of me to miss this! Now just remind me, what were you actually asking, or have you only just remembered this simple solution yourself?

SA and CIS
I suspect that if they drop out of SA they'd also need to ring CIS helpline to re-register as subbies if they recommence, otherwise they'll suffer 30% tax. No idea why this is necessary, as surely SA registration alone should be enough, but it ain't!
