Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Providing that between you you work over 24 hours a week and one of you over 16 of these then you can apply for working tax credits. The self-employed worker must be aiming to make a profit. You cannot get working tax credits if you live in an universal credit area in which case you must apply for Universal Credit. This latter benefit has a very poor reputation and endless delays in payments.

I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.

Hi thank you but the question was I am a director of a Limited by Guarantee company and cannot afford to take a salary. My husband works 16 hours employees and 16 hours self employed so we qualify for WTC I am working 16 hours alongside my non profit but am struggling with my foot as I have a disability and would like to give this up can I still get the disability elements if WTC as an unpaid director

You have to work 16 hours a week as disabled to be entitled to the benefit.

thank you I know this but would my work as a director count even though I am unpaid currently or should I hold on to my existing business please?

A director is an employee per se so your work in that capacity would count.

Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
