Self-employed & Maternity Allowance
I'm self employed with an online business and looking to apply for maternity allowance.
How does this work for my business as from what I have read, I am not allowed to be working while claiming.
However, I can work for 10 days which are 'keeping in touch' days. This is of course pretty irrelevant for my business as I am my own boss.
Am I supposed to just close my business for the period I am claiming?
