This is a Big Problem with UC, It was Never built or Designed to work with self-employment.

A Tory TRAP, After Years of this Conservative Goverment promoting self-employment as a way into Work, Along comes UC and Sinks the whole Idea.
Do Not be Fooled, Now under the UC Nightmare NEVER Even Consider going down the self-employment Road, Unless you have funds to cover you for the first Year or Two.

As in the link the results are Devastating.

While these planks are happy to set the current taper at 63% tax on benefits as an "incentive :whistle: " noone in their right mind would do a business plan built around that looney tune tax system invented to penalise the unemployed from the off :evil: .

The DWP's analogy of helping people get back into work is light years away from mine.

Like how long do they think a business will take to actually make a profit,the start up costs,transportation costs business insurances, planks.
:whistle: :evil:
