Reply To: Self Employed Income or Capital in Property


I think I am of another view, and not disagreeing with anything everyone has said in relation to “running a business” and how you treat this as employment.

My view would be that this is an investment (But was capital over £16K 14 years ago?)and if that is the case then the issue is more about that as capital unless some disregard applies and I don’t see that?

I can’t imagine anyone would agree that a claimant with say a £1 million today and had it invested in a “buy to let” business should have the capital disregarded. Is this not like investing in a bond? You wouldn’t ignore the bond as capital.
