In the office again.
I`ll provide my own, thanks ADMIN. ;) :D :x :x:x

"You`re welcome. We know how hard it can be, to set up on your own. We`ve seen some of the pitfalls, and having a wife & forum member, who is also a book keeper, is a definite advantage. More info on the business page coming up over the weekend, including tax, banking, and advertising. (the three biggies, with respect to your money!!!)

The two main areas I can not get into are employment laws, and VAT. We`re a partnership, but no employees ( other than occasional casual!) ; and I don`t plan on being VAT reg`d anytime soon

hi there, quick question:

Can you be self employed and not be an approved electrician. I am not sure what happens about test certifcates etc if your just an electrician????

its got nothing to do with if you are self employed.

the reason i ask is because when i sigh test sheets just now, they then get signed by my supervisor and basically i want to start part time self employment but wasnt sure if i would need someone else to sign the test certificates.

Didn't work for me a while back but the one on the menu bar does so I just used that and put it down to a site redesign and an old post.

the page is not opening for me
Hello a1pacino, I think you may need to click the link on the second line of the blue menu bar at the top of the forum, "Bushiness Page", not the link from Admins first post?
