What might be relevant is what relationship the clients think they have with the salon and the stylists. Particularly, who do the clients understand to be liable if something goes awry with, say, a colour or perm treatment? Who sets the prices - salon or each stylist on their own?

I agree with other replies. The fact the employer may not be reporting this to HMRC wouldn’t inevitably mean OP is self-employed. From the facts given it's more likely to mean that the employer is not complying with his obligations.
The advice to OP to check is sensible though - at the very least he should reassure himself that HMRC has a record of NI contributions for future benefits/ state pension eligibility.

Claim against what??

I can’t tell from your handle what age or gender you are, so apologies in advance if this reply is completely off target. Higher than usual levels of anxiety are quite common in peri menopause and menopause because of hormonal fluctuations. If that might be applicable to you, it’s worth exploring in case the solution lies in that direction. As I say, sorry if this is totally irrelevant to you.

Definitely a legal question and definitely needs a proper read of the franchise agreement. But I’d hazard a guess that a bank loan might not be considered “income”, on the grounds that “income” in this context probably means earnings which your client owns (as distinct from borrowings which he will be required to pay back).

As you say, if you become an employee within the qualifying period for the shares then you lose your EIS relief. Sections 163 and 167 ITA 2007.

Arguably he hasn’t had 65% of dividends, so his return may not be wrong. He may have had 100% of the company's available funds, but if his shareholding means he's only entitled to 65% of dividends then any amount he's had over and above that can't represent a legal dividend payment to him. The excess may be (legally) theft from you, but that doesn’t make it taxable on him as a dividend.

I believe you'll have to send in an amended return. There isn’t a relief for the property being “uninhabitable”. It’s a question of whether it’s a residential property in the first place. If it’s not suitable for living in then it’s not treated as a residential property and the residential rates don’t apply. So if the original return stated it was a residential property then you'll have to amend the return correcting that error.

Do return. Mark everything ‘estimate’.

Not sure what you mean by “occupation rent” as distinct from any other kind of rent? Surely the definition of rent is a payment for the exclusive right of occupation?
