If that's what you think of Boris, and I don't blame you if it is, then presumably you will do what you think is best i.e. use your common sense.
I suspect this is where the Government is going. They'd like people to be sensible but they dare not say that in so many words.
Money shouldn't come into the equation when it comes to public safety, but inevitably it will. I'd be interested to see what the instructions are from over the borders if the devolved Governments had to fund their own furlough schemes.
It's very difficult. I'm glad I don't have to make any decisions.

Didn't Boris say that folk are ENCOURAGED to go to work rather than must?
Didn't he also say that the advice is being modified and that the Government HOPES that it will be followed?
Encouraged is very different from must and hopes doesn't seem to be an instruction.
I'm not saying that I agree with the Government but surely it is not unclear? I suspect the "guidance" won't be clear though!

There's been no chargeable disposal, so there's no chargeable gain on which to pay corporation tax.

I'm certainly not looking to enter into an argument with you as I do agree in principle with your view that we humans tend to regard ourselves as superior to animals (despite the fact that we are animals ourselves), but have you ever swatted a fly or killed a wasp?

With apologies if I'm probably missing the point but doesn't the wording preclude relief for repairs to furniture if W&T is being claimed?
Can my client, who is claiming W&T (prior to 6 April 2016), not claim for e.g. recovering of a sofa, a cooker element, a washing machine repair a broken table leg etc. etc.?

So the legislation starts on 6 April 2016, the guidance (which is required by the legislation) is incomplete, and people can go to prison for non-compliance.
It just gets worse and worse.

More or less than employees?
I wouldn't want to upset any employees who are paid less. I especially wouldn't pay a rate greater than that paid to the employee who is going to review the sub-contractor's work.
(Bit of an historical sore point for me.)

Thanks for your comment "bernard michael".
It seems that I need assistance with how to perform a search of this site as when I searched for "Does a director need to complete a tax return" I found nothing of use. Could you help me out please?
But actually I was looking for a statutory reference. I assume from your post that there isn't one.

Steve Kesby often provides accurate and useful posts.
Having considered your own query I think you did come to the correct conclusion with the Director assessable in 13/14. I wonder how many others wouldn't have made the RTI submission "today"? I wouldn't have.
For mine, s686 was the clincher. I was trying to argue that the date of physical payment (4 May), being after the official pay date, was the important date as far as the timing of the RTI submission was concerned, but s686 means that I was incorrect. The RTI submission was triggered on 27 April, assuming that I was correct in considering that date to be the date of entitlement.
As guided by other respondents, I'm introducing a cut-off date and changing the calculation date to the date the staff are physically paid. The RTI submission will be before that date.
Thanks again to everybody.
