Since around February 2016, my limited company has been mine and my wife’s only form of work. We are the only two directors and I work for the company full time and my wife works 16 hours a week. We’ve never had employment contracts as we don’t want to have to pay ourselves minimum wage. My ‘wage’ of £500 per month goes straight into a directors loan account until the company gets to a point where it can pay me and my wife doesn’t currently receive a wage. We’ve now had a letter from tax credits saying that they have no record of us either of us working for the company and have asked us to prove it basically, with wage slips, etc. The problem is, my wife doesn’t get wage slips because she doesn’t get paid and I’ve never bothered with a wage slip as never needed one. I was just wondering if anyone else has been challenged by tax credits and successfully argued your case? Any help/advice would be hugely appreciated.
