PAYE funded by personal cash



New Member
Hi guys, myself and my wife are starting a business after my wife’s redundancy. I’ll be a director as will my wife. but my wife will be the one working and trying to win new accounts for the business as I have a full time job.

My question is

Can I find the business using my personal cash and my wife take PAYE (under income tax and NI thresholds) so we can still access free child care support from government

As we both need to be employed and earning

Is this all above board?
