Housing Benefit For Owners (Directors) Of Small Private Companies

One of our most asked about areas of Housing Benefit has been how to calculate income and capital for claimants who work for a company in which they own a significant shareholding – namely people who have set up their own ‘limited company’ that is often just a small business enterprise run from home. This Workshop looks in detail specifically at the issues involved when assessing or advising on housing benefit claims from people who set up their small business and become ‘company directors’.
