Getting out of the business.

107 posts in this topic

Following on from another thread I wondered how easy it is for girls to get out of this business into a "normal" job.

One of my passengers was telling me that she just landed a job with RBS (the bank) but they were concerned that she had a four month gap on her CV. She had nothing to hide but had to convince them that she was simply a "housewife" for those four months.

Interesting topic, Jimmy - at least for nosy punters like myself who always want to know everything about the girls' lives.

The wise virgins have a second job or train for something else, I suppose. The feckless ones just live day by day. Not that that's a criticism: I'm sure the Vicar will be ready to remind us of a text that says, 'Consider the lilies'.

I think it is easier for us "mature" ladies with kids as we can easily have been housewives or mothers at home for a long time. Probably a little more difficult if you are younger and have no kids.

Though in the past I used to work for a company for a couple of years which went bankrupt and had that on my cv. There is no way they can ever check it up and nobody ever did.

I see your point but surely this would only apply to ladies who pay no tax on their "escorting activities".

Most ladies on here insist that they pay tax and this would show up when you start your new job and revert to PAYE.

How thoroughly your new employer would check would probably depend on the type of job you are taking up.

I don't think that would show up to a new employer as, unlike someone who had been an employee, you would have no P45 to give them showing Earnings To Date for the tax year, and a tax code.

Would it show up or would you simply go straight onto PAYE as a usual employee?Then sort it out on your tax return at the end of the year?

I know coming off PAYE was easy, I simply had to put down the amounts I'd earned and the PAYE tax from my last employment - then how much I earned from self-employed. All worked out at the end of the year. I presumed it would be much the same - straight onto PAYE again, and a return at the end of the year to tie everything up.

I don't think the problem is getting a normal job, I think that most girls struggle with the normal job once they have it.

Someone once wrote on here about two brothers, one earning 350 per week and enjoying it going out in pubs and clubs and the other working every hour with more money than he knew what to do with but not really having the time to enjoy it. Well anyone that can afford to go clubbing and live on 350 per week is doing well but most people find 'normal' a little difficult after having a cash rich job with the perks of no VAT or Tax.

I guess that is why so many write they are retiring to join the 'normal' world and then they are back two weeks later.

Gaps in CV's is becoming a problem as the unemployed increases but there is always the old 'travel' excuse. I personally have seen an influx of girls joining the game not trying to get out. I would think finding a job that matches your current income would be more of a problem.

Before you shout me down I declare every penny not that it makes a blind bit of difference I just hope it shortens the sentence when they come a knocking. We are trying our hardest to invest in our legitimate businesses to allow us an easier passage back to normality.

I am no tax expert but how would your new employer know how much tax to stop unless they had a tax code. ???

What they generally do I think is put you onto emergency tax code until they work one out. Since you've been self-employed you will still have a return to fill in at the end of the year when any tax owing would be balanced out - so I suspect you just go onto the most appropriate rate for your earnings at the time, then sort it out at year end.

Just looked this up on Businesslink. In lieu of P45 you fill in a P46 which requires details of past work history. Wonder if there is a way to get around that, or just say you worked from home using one of the skills you list on your CV!

Yes, as Strawberry said if you do not have a P45 you normally fill out a P46 and will pay emergency tax for a short while whilst the tax office works out your paye code.. This of course will be based on your previous earnings but as it is the tax office working it out, the company will not know. This is quite normal practice as many people seem to lose their P45 with their tax codes on.

I used to work for the Inland Rev when I left Uni. The P46 that get sent in by employers that are submitted and if there are no details on we checked them against the computer T.I index. If we could not find any details we would write to the employee asking about their previous pay and tax history. After 30 days we would send another letter and if no reply pretty much nothing would get done about it. They do not have the time or resources to do extensive investigation unless there is a case for fraud but generally that would not even be looked at. You would put them on an emergency code at first and then another code would be allocated.

I declare my earnings as an Aromatherapist.. If I was to go back into the real world, I would say that I have done this alongside bringing up my children.

Does making statements like that really create more business for the girl?

Sorry you lost me here. I guess girls retiring and telling everyone they are creates them more business but as for me writing it I can't see how it affects them.

I have worked with hundreds of girls that do not see this as long term but they flit in and out of the job as it is always there and is always going to provide instant cash.

I meant statement like that made by girls who say they are retiring but in fact hope that saying so will generate more business for them. Are punters really that stupid?

I think everybody knew what you meant, Mike. (especially DivineMK). They just did not wanted to answer such an elementary "Jimmyredcrabbish" kind of questions, and its better way to pretend that they misunderstood you. :D

Really? I will be damned. Thanks.

Still a bit confused though. Elementary in what sense? In the sense that everyone knows the intention of the girls who say so or that punters being stupid is common knowledge. I know I am being dumb but do bear with me after all I am a punter.

To bloody obvious. Of course many girls claim that they retiring to get "last shot" from the business and then never do retire. Some do say it, and then truly disappear. (in fact, its more of the latter then a former).

But of course guys more snigger about the former situ, hence its in theirs memories.

Surely if they were popular in the first place then they don't have to use desperate measures. If punters don't wants to see them then how would saying I am leaving the business going to create work for them? I really am dumb, aren't I?
