Thanks for your reply. I have come across it but haven't looked into it in any detail - the several years experience comes from an arb college course, forestry degree and 2-3 years working as a consultant but not getting involved with any of the business management side. I do not live anywhere near my working range and the work will mostly be for family and family of friends etc. so I doubt it will be an issue, but is certainly a conversation I will be having with them to make sure!
Hi all, I currently work 5 days a week for a company as an arb surveyor/consultant. I am looking to earn some extra cash by carrying out some local surveys and providing reports on weekends for mostly risk assessments and tree management reports. I may end up doing some small BS5837 and subsidence reports but will mostly do these through work due to the complexity and other reasons. Are there any liability/insurance etc. issues I need to sort before I can get started? I am fully qualified with several years experience. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
