I think a crossover culture will work best such as two days office three at home. My work is far more efficient at home. I don't miss the commute, office politics or the standard office wear. I don't agree that it creates a 24/7 culture I'd rather start at seven and finish at three but accept this isn't always practical for clients.
Working from home gives greater flexibility and means my life is not being determined by trying to avoid traffic jams in the daily commute, so I can gain an extra 8 hours week from not having to do this. The downside is that unfortunately I don't think my employer will agree with me!

Harsh view point that if you earn £60k that you should have savings to see you through. If you earn £60k as self-employed and are the sole earner in your family you get nothing. Whereas a husband and wife both earning £30k each per annum as employees could get furloughed and receive 80% of their earnings. Both households have same level of income but one will receive £48,000 in government support and one nothing. Hardly fair.

Great article, Accountants are human beings to. We all suffer from the stresses of running our own businesses at times. It's good to know that it doesn't just affect you especially when you run a business by yourself.
