I don't think it is that hard and fast as you may genuinely have different travel policies for different employees. It would be wise however to mix up credit. In many small businesses the spouse is also part of the business on either a part time or full time basis and thus may the 2nd travelling employee.
You do need two employees, although the definition of employees is not given. In the real world this is quite wide, and small companies are usually familiar with interpreting rules widely. You will need to declare these people during application as one will be the administrator and one the authoriser of the account. Not both of these have to travel. Once your company is up and running BA may well check that flights are being taken by more than one person. As far as I can see this is the only time they could check easily the OB company is not being used as a front for an individual. But the BA rules of who can earn are very wide and include consultants and contractors working on company business. So I would concentrate your efforts on ensuring more than one employee, consultant or contractor is travelling on the account.
Dont you have a cat you could "employ" ?
I used to own a shop and lived in the same building, the cats used to come down during the day to "work" with me and were well known in the town, when I asked the tax chap about tax implications of my "advertising cats" he said that I couldnt claim anything for them as I had personal use of them out of hours!!
The same tax man that said "just total up the years takings dear, while I pop outside for a cigar"
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page
If BA can have cabin crew called Pucci Galore I see no reason why On Business cannot have members called Pussy Galore. The concept of tax efficient cats is beyond me though, my dear, so I'm off outside for a cigar.
I was about to sign up to On Business today but was disappointed to see that my business has to have at least two travelling employees to be eligible.
Does anybody know why this is the case? Many thanks in advance!
I guess it is to stop everyone "double dipping" Avios and points. I opened an On Business account for my mother-in-law's property business, but then they insisted on a corporate e-mail address for the company, which I didn't have. They don't seem to be toooooo strict about employees - my 18 month old son has travelled with her whilst she has gone to look at properties overseas and points have been credited for him.
