I work for a small company run by the owner of the business, with his wife and recently his son as Directors. The wife has no input into the business and in the 6yrs I've worked here I've never seen her. The son (aged 34) works along side me. Well I say work, he rocks into the office anywhere between 10.30-11am. Frequently leaves early and has double the amount of holidays as anyone else. Not that I mind him not being here as he does nothing when he's in. Now to the crux of the matter, the son's wife also draws a wage from here of approximately £400 a month. Not a lot I grant you, but it does place her below her tax threshold. She does not work, at all, ever. She occasionally takes her kids to school, mostly her mum or the bosses son does, she does minimal house work and she cannot cook anything other than pasta. Their 3 kids aged between 7 and 4 either eat pasta or whatever take away crap (McDonalds, Pizza Hut, whatever) she buys. The bosses son does what little cooking is done in the house on weekends. She spends her day in the gym. A few years ago she was quite tidy, but now she looks skeletol, no tits and very haggard (she's 35). The bosses son drives a Mercedes something or other (big car - with a 5.5litre engine, I think), which is not a company car (daddy bought his car), so no company car tax. However, all his car bills, including fuel is paid for by the company. He does approximately 500 miles a week back and for work, and running around on the weekend. He puts a mileage claim in every week for trips to Newcastle, Manchester, and other places up north (we're based in S.Wales) to cover his and his wifes fuel bill (thats right, the company pays for her fuel as well). The company also pays his home telephone bill (I think they claim the sons wife works from home), and we also pay for overnight trips to London (they stay in the Dorchester) to see shows which are claimed under company entertainment. All mobile phone's for the son & son's wife are paid for by the company as well. Almost forgot, the son's wife has a student loan that she doesn't pay back and differs every year, because she's below the earnings threshold. Although there is an income of approximately £40k going into the house just on wages alone, plus all the freebies they get. Now I freely admit I'm bitter to hell about the son and wife getting pretty much everything for free, when we haven't had a pay rise for 3yrs. But is any of the above illegal? As no tax is being paid on any of the freebies he receives from the company.
