My husband and I have separated after being married for 25

Customer Question

My husband and I have separated after being married for 25 years. I am on the books with our business. If I come off the books so that I can go on the books with my other employer, will that affect my claim on the business, should our separation lead to divorce?

Hi
Thank you for your question.
I will do my best to assist but I need some further information first.

Hi
Do you actually want to come off the books of your husband's business - or is he insisting on it?
Claire
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He's not insisting. I am on his books for £7200 and do not pay tax. My other employer pays me £470 per month. I am not sure if I have to come off of the companies books or whether I will still be in a non-taxable band. If I can be on both and not pay tax, then that would be the ideal situation for me.

Hi
Out of interest do you actually receive the £7,200?
