Why on earth would you do this? You give her, say, £20 to do your ironing- you are £20 worse off. She receives £20 and pays tax (possibly NIC on this). Have you thought of an advantage?
I imagine it is to give wife a self employed status and therefore be able to pay reduced NI rates to gain extra years for short years in gaining her state pension. Can she not do other family members ironing? I don't think she can do yours or any family member living at same address.
Is this question somehow different from the OP's recent thread?https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6165277/could-my-wife-provide-us-services-on-a-self-employed-basis-and-put-all-her-earnings-into-a-pension#latestAsk a question, don't get the answer I want so ask the same question again.I can't see how paying your wife for "services" in the home would be determined as anything other than GAAR.OP's wife can, of course, set up an ironing business and earn revenue from outside the family unit. That does not apply to all of the "services" that the OP may hope to gain from within his wife the family unit.
