I know there'll be people out there who can help here, with the lad now having completed a whole week at work as a window fitter's mate, he's been told he has to be registered as self employed and have public liability insurance.

Anyone know anything about this, able to offer advice or guidace? It should've been done over the weekend apparently but he and his father did not communicate and now it needs to be done very urgently.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Self employed? Surely he's been employed by the window fitter and therefore it's down to that person to pay his tax, otherwise I can imagine it'd be a nightmare tax wise.

That's what I thought, but they're sub contracted by Anglian. It all sounded a little dodgy to me, but then that area's a minefield as far as I'm concerned.

I'd get him to ask around at work. His colleagues should know what to do and what the best deals are. I don't know whether there is an union or trade association but if there is they'll probably be able to offer better insurance deals as they'll be able to get a bulk discount.

Hmm....yes, that's what any sensible person would do, but he doesn't like asking questions for fear it makes him look daft! Anyway, he'll have to today, the website he managed to get hold of for registering requires you to be over 21. I must admit, I did think that being under 18 might be an issue.

Well, that simply won't do will it? You'll have to beat some confidence into him. A snooker ball in a sock should suffice.

Come on OBL, get off your backside and do some parenting!

Hope this helps
Kind Regards
