A client rang me yesterday to say that he was going to work temporarily as a van driver and had been told that he should become VAT registered.
He was sent a video (the link is below) which is along the same lines as Quick Books in ..." its all easy with us" etc etc. His usual income is as a judo instructor and as he hasnt been able to work for a very long time due to covid closure of sports halls he is getting rather desperate for any work.
But he's only going to work for them for a few weeks. He hadnt appreciated that once he was VAT registered he couldnt unregister immediately he left, wasnt told that he had to leave me and so on. He thought they would do the work just for the time he was with the firm.
...quote from video...'all this for only £15 a week.'
The link was headed 'Driver registration Wise' as if it was something he had to do (or it was 'wise' to do?)
See what you think
