In the tax year 16/17 I moved from my family home and leaving my business, on the promise I could convert the garage and work from the garden. This property was owned by my partner's parents.
They made me wait 8 months. Making my business expenses into 17/18.
After being open 1 year, my partner of 8 years ends our relationship with no warning. I lost my home and business in 20 seconds. No compensation was given. Another tax year write off.
I moved back home to try and restart my business. I had to take 3 months off as I got very ill from the stress.
The next year (tax year 19/20) I had the horrible call to say my grandfather was dying and my car died on the way to the hospital, so another tax year write off due to buying a new car. (2nd hand of course)
Just as I was about to get myself looking good on paper in April 2020 the world stops for everyone, but for me, this is the 3rd time I've lost my business from things out of my control.
All I have ever wanted is to have a home I can work from. I have the potential to earn well. I just need the location to do so.
I am always adding to my treatment menu and (as I'm the wrong side of 30) with life experience I have the ability to work with any challenge.
