I wonder if the Living Allowance is the old Disability Living Allowance and the new employee is using old terminology rather than its replacement, that is, PIP - Personal Independence Payment. If he/she is entitled to PIP, then it goes directly from the government to the person's bank account, tax free.

If you are looking for information on legislation.gov.uk, use ‘Advanced Search \keywords in content ‘and it should bring up what you need.
If you are looking for a section of an Act, e.g. S169Q, then leave out the ‘S’ and just use ‘169Q’ or use ‘Section 169Q’.

24 hours on, I'm struggling to get rid of the image nicely provided by DJKL of "engineers with oily bits"!

Well, it looks as though it is getting fewer month by month - in June last year it appears to have been 15 or 16!

Where would we be without a bit of categorisation?!
Looking at the OP’s list, there could be overlap; e.g an ambitious client who is a ‘Typical OMB.’
Following on from that, I think a distinction has to be made between different clients in terms of their attitudes and efficiency, and so on, in dealing with accounting issues arising, and their businesses in terms of complexities.
As a rough guide (and I have just picked the following categories out of the air), clients might be competent, passable, or incompetent. Businesses might be straightforward, complicated or highly complex.
It is then a case of matching client and business: e.g. competent client and complicated business; incompetent client and straightforward business; or, night-mare scenario, incompetent client and highly complex business.

This is the list of business savings accounts that I refer others to (and then they can decide!):
As regards investments, this old thread is worth reading:

Apart from the addition of a regulation number (679), yes, it does seem that the wording is the same.
The pdf you have is the first reading.
The information note attached to the second reading says:
“Since the European Parliament has approved the Council's position at first reading, the act in question is deemed to have been adopted in the wording which corresponds to the Council's position at first reading …”
6th April 2016 (pdf in your first post) first reading (EU Council)
11th – 14th April 2016 second reading (as above) (EU Parliament)
27th April 2016 signed by the President of the Council and the President of the EU Parliament. (the document link I gave in my first post).
I’m not surprised it was giving you a headache! People who have lost track of the real world seem to design government websites where nothing can be found easily!
