To be honest, I’m not a fan of the Universal Basic Income. That is a whole other conversation (which we really should have as it is interesting) but to get back to your point about self employed having minimal profits for tax purposes, yes, that is the case for most and I think that was why Rishi Sunak made those thinly-veiled threats about increasing the amount of tax that the self-employed will pay later on, not mentioning the various benefits they don’t get.

Freelancers will get money in June and in the meantime they are allowed to work if they can get it, and they can also sign on to Universal Credit if they qualify.
