Universal credit then?

Yep. Been filling out forms for days.
All I need now is to do my last 12 months books, in the next few days.
Which will be interesting...

Roughy, have you got a local Facebook job page?, around here the supermarkets are advertising for delivery drivers, warehouse staff, admitidly it ain't a fortune, but with a bit of overtime you'd get somewhere around £500/week top of your ticket, not to be sneezed when things are as shit as they are.

I'm hoping that UC is a fallback.
Going to try and keep working at milling in the yard. Got a tree job Saturday in a woodland to look at.
If I can do 2-4 days a week I'll survive.
Otherwise yes its minimum wage whatever.

I thought the plan for self-employed was to sit and wait HMRC to call if you qualify for a monthly 80% grant based on the average 3 year profit you submitted through your self-assessment. I am hoping I get a call at the end of April. Will see.

That's my understanding as well
