Written evidence submitted by Beth Gibbons

 

I am writing to back the call for Government to move the March PAYE filing deadline to April 5th when many Directors of small Ltd Companies had their annual RTI filed by their acting agent / accountant, to allow Furlough eligibility (but also to allow us to backdate our Furlough claim for the full period March-Oct) as we have been left out of the system through no fault of our own.

 

To date I have been excluded from both the SEISS because the Government see me as employee, even though I am a one-man band (sole director sole employee of my own under £50k Ltd company). Like many my work has dried up and I have been left to fall through the system despite being a UK taxpayer having worked for myself for the last 15 years.
