I am extremely worried in advance of the Chancellor's announcement today that I could be one of the many who will fall through the cracks of the mechanism they will use (last 3 years returns).
I started my new business in September last year and have until recently lived on my savings which recently ran out - the minimal money that has came into the business so far has purely been to cover costs and the nature of my business means that I will have no opportunity to earn any money over the coming weeks and months.
Does anyone have any thoughts - really concerned I will actually have no way of getting enough money to live over the next few months !!!!

    Until it is announced nobody will know. In the meantime could you not take a job at a supermarket or similar to keep you going until you can restart your business or claim any other benefits?
