I am as salon owner as well with renters. I didn’t charge them while we were shut down either But I did not receive any grants other than the $1000 EIDL. I was denied everything else. How were you able to receive grant money?Hi I’m a salon owner and I’ve not charged my girls rent, I think it’s morally wrong given I have grants to pay the rent. X
I would love to know how other owners are receiving grants large enough to pay their rent! Any information would be appreciated! All I got was $1000 EIDL beca I have independent contractor/renters.I don't rent to anyone at the mo, but most owners I know have charged throughout lockdowns. Some have offered payment plans, to spread late payments over a longer period, etc, but on the whole, their renters have received s/e grants, etc and although the owners have also recieved grants, they have had to pay rent, utilities, etc.
I also heard some councils will not pay grants to s/e if they cannot prove they have been paying rent.
It's also had some discussion on another site, as there's been rumours from hmrc that if your not charging rent, as an owner, then the person may be classed as an employee, so owners could potentially end up being liable for hols, etc.
A very complicated situation from all sides! I'm kinda glad it's not a decision I'm having to make at the mo.
I think you guys have a different system in the US. We are UK based. Each country in the UK has it's own framework, so get slightly different amounts of grants. Personally, although I received some grant money, it was certainly not what I would normally have earned and because we've been closed/restricted so often over the last year, it certainly has not covered my outgoings. However, I'm still grateful to have recieved anything.I would love to know how other owners are receiving grants large enough to pay their rent! Any information would be appreciated!
