  1. I hire MEWP's when required. Its costs me nothing as the cost for the hire is included within the quotation. Why get in debt when you can hire for free??
  2. I would be interested to know the best method to safely remove it?
  3. Costing for quotations can be tricky from time to time especially if your starting out, though I do not understand the half a day costing, that doesn't work for me as at all. If my guys were told they were only getting half a days pay there would be an uprising & I wouldn't have any staff!! All very well if theres two or more decent paying smaller jobs in one day or you employ staff full-time maybe??
  4. Its a big pond out there, starting fishing! Why on earth would any employer make do with a liability? At one time I didn't do much networking within the industry (I just got lazy) and for a couple of years I had the same old problem children. I then changed my ways and now have a great group of guys to call as and when required. Going to work is a pleasure and working with professionals helps!
  5. Yes me too. This is the slowest year I have had in the last 5 for reasons unknown to me. Never mind, it gives me more time to do home improvements!!
  6. So I was finishing my days tree surgery around 6pm and driving to my tip site in my village when I passed another tree surgeon on the high street (well out of area according to the signage) with a very full transit load of chip and likely at least half a load again of waste on the side of the road. Feeling sorry for them I turned around, went back and offered my tip site to them, told them to follow me which they did. They tipped and left without even a thank you! Will think twice next time!!!
  7. Thanks all, I have contacted my new accountant so hopefully put this matter to bed.
  8. Hi All, I am just about to change accountants and today at a meeting with my new accountant I was asked me if I make CIS deductions. I don't and never have. I am a limited company that provides tree surgery to residential customers. I have zero employees, just use subcontractors. Could anyone steer me in the right direction in terms of the rules etc? Thanks.
  9. Yes I do & thats a pain! One day I will find a decent large log store that will last me a while. Always looking but never seem to see one that would be big enough or suitable.
  10. I always have 5 years or so of firewood at my place (don't sell any). I have a old house so normally have the two log burners on from late August -May. Love burning wood!!
