Quote:The rules suggest that in order to claim the employee must have stopped working completely - not many directors I know can do this. Surely even putting in the claim is doing some work (as is instructing your accountant to put in a claim), therefore I doubt many directors can claim.
What about a director that works 2 hours per day as director and 5 hours per day based on Contract of Employment. No payment for director duties. RTI done for 5 hours/day, taking all hours and monthly salary, the 5 hours is above minimum wage requirements. Now all work for 5 hours/day gone.
I think this setup should qualify for 80% from HMRC
