    Presumably it’ll have to be backdated?

    do not judge everyone by your own levels of morality. i have always declared my earnings , cash, bacs or cheque. i want to be a fully paid up member of Society. Now i feel like a bit part player.

    I am sure that you didnt mean everyone

    I would imagine it will take a lot of working out. Hopefully it will be backdated.

    I'd have thought so. I was expecting it to take a few weeks to be honest . I’m expecting 80% or last years earnings and I suppose HMRC will have a lot of work on processing the 80% for employees as well as self employed applications that will need to submit bank details for payment all with no extra staff. Hopefully it isn’t May , end of April I could manage End of May I’ll struggle but could defer some payments. At least if we know moneys coming. For people like @blueinsa, new start ups, it will be a bigger worry.

    There is your problem. If only you went to pubs you would know about benefit claiming.

    Probably the most difficult time I've ever experienced as self employed. This too shall pass and hopefully we,ll come through this

    Hope this sorted ASAP, I’m a self employed taxi driver and having to work so I’ve got something coming in, not ideal having folk sat a couple of yards away handing over cash
