    Tax return

    Hi there, I'm a beginner self-employed person and I'm trying to do the tax return on my own with the aid of an application. I started off in September 2018. Do I need to file a tax return now you think? Many thanks! Rob
  4. Okay, guys, it is nice you are worrying for others but the main topic is how to decrease the expenses of the training and assessment. Please, if you can give some advice, contacts in the subject. Who ever started up a chainsaw and working with it probably have their fears and understand that all individual need underpinning knowledge before chopping can begin. Be safe everyone!
  5. I was thinking the same LANTRA sources what was needed for CS30, CS31, CS38, CS39. I'm pretty sure there are the same books for CS32,34,35 and AFAG, HSE, etc leaflets.
  6. I work at a proper felling site and yes, I wouldn't take the assessment one without theory or practice. I am not mad just wanted to think ahead. It is a fact that trees are bloody heavy and dangerous. I had near misses as well. Thank you for reminding me.
  7. Not nice, is it? Although, I would read and learn the book first. All the feedbacks of real-life accumulates in them so books surely teach some general wisdom. You can learn from other ppl's mistakes.
  8. Hi Big J., Yes, please drop his contact to me unless He is called Terry M. Graeat! Thank you bud! robertt790@gmail.com
  9. No plans yet. Probably, yes. Depends on common interests. Would be great to get the LANTRA books than book the assessment. I might can help with felling site. What do you think?
  10. Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm looking for ppl from Avon and Somerset, Gloucester, Swindon area, who want to take CS32, CS34. My intention is to come out cheaper than £600++. We might arrange the assessment for ourselves. If interested, please drop me an email or just reply here. robertt790@gmail.com
  11. Hi peep, Have we got anyone using GoSimple tax app for submitting taxreturn? I'd need your opinion please. Cheers, Rob
