High I am a bit worried as I have had a letter through the door saying I have earned more than £20 per week on the permitted work scheme. I had thought it was after expenses as I have started my own self employed business. Needless to say I have not earned anything yet. How do they see it and what are my rights ? I sent them my accounts to show what I have done as they asked. They have told me twice I am earning more than the lower permitted rate. Luckily the money coming into my business did not exceed the higher permitted work threshold any way . I understand everything on permitted work but the expenses part I may have not got right. I have general cost of sales expenses like pots , plants , greenhouse etc. These are allowable expenses to the HMRC (tax people).
Help very worried ?! Might need to go onto working tax credit. Can just about manage 16 hours work at least I hope so.
