    Maternity - Husband adding me on to his business to do his Accounts

    Maternity - Husband adding me on to his business to do his Accounts 9th Aug 18 at 9:59 AM

    I am going on Maternity in a month. I will be getting 6 weeks full pay and then 33 weeks SMP pay. So roughly about 7K that year.

    My husband thought that I could do his accounts for the year as he is self-employed and he would pay me 200 a month and this would also reduce his tax for the year.
    Is he able to do this or will it affect my SMP?

    Thank you.

    Yes it would, but also your current employer might not like it.

    I cant imagine that 2400 will have that much of an impact on tax.
