    You didn't mention if you had the contacts and a steady supply of work lined up?
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    if ur just looking to sub then i would not get too excited about having a business.. its not that grand. if your good and turn up every day then you will be fine. should be looking to do units in 2 days to a good standard or team up with a mate and go day bashing. the jobs more about not offing ur self and getting depressed if u can avoid that and eat up the meters u will have a reasonable living.

    If you are on about starting a business, taking on lots of work and subbing it out or, god forbid, actually employing people, fcuk that! All the good tapers will be too busy to help you, or want the same or more than what you will be getting. You'll get chancers that come along and completely fcuk jobs up for you and make you look a proper cnut. The larger the company you work for, the longer they will keep you waiting for your money. Do what Thomas said. You've only got yourself to worry about then, and as long as your work is good, and you are reliable, you should be able to stay in work. The days will go quicker and be more enjoyable if you have a workmate of the same ability and mind set as yourself.

    I could never work for some1! Been to long since I did!
    Employing people is a pain in the ass that's for sure with Paye,national insurance and now we got this pension crap coming in
    Then there's the vat to do and ur books which u will need an accountant for which is not cheap either!
    Ok I am employed as it's a LTD company but it's my company so I do what I like!
    We used to have about 12 of us but I left that business to go with me and my worker and that's a lot less hassle.
    Good luck with whatever u decide(Me I say go for it)
