    Hi there 

    It all depends how much it is and if it takes you over the threshold 

    Could your son not pay the debt direct to company to save it going into your account ?

    As janer suggests, it it will take your capital over £6000 it will avoid any confusion if your son can pay the company concerned directly withoutthe money passing through your account.

    If you will never have more than £6000 in the bank then it doesn’t affect your IS anyway.
