I joined to get some knowledge of how the industry works and what is needed to carry out domestic non-notifiable work.

just enough work to have a few extra beers or maybe a better season ticket.

The problem "to get a few extra beers".. is ALWAYS a good objective in my opinion....

Legal requirements about what is needed to do "Non-notifiable" work....
Simple answer "NOTHING"..
As... DIY electrical work is legally permitted in England..

As long as your potential customers are happy...
Then just crack on and get as much work as you can!!

But please make sure you are doing relevant tests and issuing appropriate, (Minor Works), certificates for the work you are doing!!

Do you have access to calibrated test instruments?

Split from "introduce yourself"

Hi, Thanks for such a swift response. Yeah I’ve got all the tools and test instruments - MFT, Voltage indicator etc. The MFT needs calibration though.
Sole trader or Limited Company - what’s your thoughts?
 
I would say you still want PL insurance, unless you want to foot the bill if you damage something in a customers house while working,

And register with hmrc as self employed.
