My mates pop-up toilet roll shop he opened a few months ago is turning out to be an absolute gold mine.

I've recently had to self-furlough (I run a limited company of which I am the only employee). Still waiting to hear whether I'd be eligible for the 80% wage payments as PAYE, or whether I'd be classed as self-employed.

Given the lack of further information with regards to furloughing, and several government sources now stating furloughed employees are entitled to UP TO 80%, I do wonder whether businesses that don't apply for financial help during this period will be eligible for the full 80% grant to pay for their furloughed staff, or just some, or even none of it, as a way of deciding who really needed it.
