I知 still unsure wether to claim the second grant. 😁

I知 about 」600 down in lost income with contracts on pause etc, but over all I知 up and have replaced it with more work.

I知 holding off in case I have to isolate too. The Covid numbers are going a bit crazy In my area.

Read a really good article by the money saving expert team, Martin says  粗ven if your profits are up, if you would have earned more without covid, then you can legitimately claim.

I haven稚 claimed yet, but think I may well do depending on how the next two weeks go.

Not at all mate, for example:

My profits are similar to last year, however I had a large softwash job contract cancelled in April for a big housing association. This would have bumped my profit up significantly. As it is, I致e lost out purely due to Covid. Therefore I can legitimately claim as I致e lost that extra profit.

There are many instances like this.

At the end of the day, the reason people find this grant help so controversial, is because it痴 a blanket payment. You may have lost 」3000 of work, but get a 」7000 grant. That痴 not your problem, that痴 up to the government. They chose to give a blanket amount that may very well mean you are better off.

It痴 a very individual case, I genuinely lost work, so can claim with a clear conscience.

It really is a case of knowing if you致e lost any work or not, as apposed to 僧y profit is the same.

My profits are good, but would have been even better had it not been for the lockdown and pandemic.

It痴 also not fair that the people who haven稚 claimed are going to be helping paying it back in higher Tax increases,swings in roundabouts the increase in furlough is down to keeping unemployment figures down.

I think its utterly ridiculous there are people who 'rent' subsidised housing when they could easily afford to pay the market rate.  8)

It痴 not ridiculous Daz, if the government are willingly offering you a grant for any business loss, then take it.

If you weren稚 affected, that痴 fine mate.

You keep forgetting over and over again, that some of us were genuinely affected. I was over 」1000 down for three months in April/June/July.

So it would utterly ridiculous not to take a grant that痴 been out there to cover that loss.

It痴 not about profit, it痴 about loss of regular jobs/contracts.

You have to remember a lot of us are supporting a family, a mortgage and much more. So a loss of 」1000 is a lot. A heck of a lot. Despite the fact my profits are still good, they would have been a lot lot better without this pandemic.
