Very long boring story but resigned from my job back in July after horrendous road accident followed by a virtual nervous breakdown.
The "ideal" job came out of nowhere-huge salary,local,some nice travel etc etc.
Anyway,have decided I just don't want to be away from dd that much and so on Friday told them I won't be taking the position (due to start next week).
So now I am looking at working part-time doing consultancy for my old company and basically turning my hand to whatever I can to pay the bills.
I obviously need to register as self-employed and all the malarky that goes with it (any advice on that also greatly received)
but I need a company name.
I don't need it to be specific to my role (as that could be very varied) I would just really like a clever one word name-Fanjo did spring to mind but not convinced.....
Well I was in manufacturing/sales to major supermarkets but I don't want a name which ties me to that.....I have a broad range fo skills which really could be applied to anything which is why a neutral but easy/catchy or even clever name is what i am after.
D'ya know I never even thought of Whooosh (duh).
Hmm-definitely a possible-isn't it a bit naff though?
Think I would like to keep the word "consulting" out of it as all consultants are w@nkers aren't they?
<<waves at Pennies>>-legs still not sorted (grrrrr).How is LO getting on at Joes?
My DH went down somewhat similar route - you need to be quite careful in how you arrange consultancy with old company to ensure it really does count as self employed; could be a problem if they are your only client. You need to check the IR35 rules - I'm sure they are available on Inland Revenue website. The revenue take a dim view of people essentially doing same job but ditching NI contributions etc.
Oh hello! Pennies and I were only wondering last night what you'd decided to do - now we know!
Do you definitely want to set up a company, rather than be a sole trader? Much simpler to be a sole trader, and less IR35 risk, as you're already paying lots of tax! Happy to chat over being a sole trader if you want, as that's what I was pre-dd (and dh still is).
