Subject: RE: When is it time to 'call it a day'?
I posted this answer on a different thread, but here it is again:

if you can demonstrate that you've gigged in the past, then can you argue that your instruments are "tools of your trade"? It seems a nonsense for them to make you sell an asset, the proceeds from which will be spent and gone in days, when you could use it to earn at least some income. Would they expect an electrician or plumber to sell their tools?
