  • when did you start window cleaning?
    8 years
  1. It's the HMRC's own tool . Employment status indicator . It doesn't seem to cover everything although I can easily get my subs to come out as self employed with this tool . You can also print out a PDF of the results to show HMRC if ever your company is investigated. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Filling your tank.

    You don't need a transfer tank. You can get fast r/o 's that stay in your van and fill over night.
  3. Yes by the sounds of it carbon fibre slot together are the way to go. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  4. I think from a safety point of view I'll put my hand in my pocket. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Another concern I've got is if I tip up at a customers house and it takes me 20 mins to do the same job that would take me an hour by hand . Are the customers gonna look at me like some sort of $¥@# when I ask for £50
  6. Can they get into the more narrow gutters? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. Thinking about buying a skyvac. They're in the sale at the moment at www.windowcleaninggear.co.uk Are they any good? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  8. Thanks for your advice. It's something that's been on my mind for sometime. I think I'll have a sit down with the guys to discuss the matter. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. Thanks Greener for that. I'm just wondering as my guys do cleaning work for themselves,and they also do some small amount for another window cleaner when required, they'd been seen as freelance? Therefore I would be ok in classing them as self employed? I'm 100% sure they would prefer to be seen as self employed because their hourly rate is twice what it'd be if they were on my books.

  10. Weve all seen the news lately. The case of the plumbing company that used self employed staff rather than employed staff. I find myself in a similar position. I have 2 vans, both being manned by 2 self employed staff. These staff wear the company uniform, drive the company vans however they all are able and do do their own work if they so desire. If I were to employ them their wages would halve over night as I'd have to give them holiday pay, pension etc. Anyone else in a similar position?
  11. Unique Blue glass cleaner

    Yes it's the best I've tried and I've tried plenty Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. Bought some of this product from the Northampton window cleaning show. Absolutely excellent. Spray on and wipe of with microfibre.no smears or streaks. Has anyone tried it? It's from a company called Chemico Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  13. Frequency of round.

    Most of my work is supposed to be 4 weekly however in reality it gets done around 5 weekly which I think customers prefer. Rest of my 6/8/12 weekers are done on time. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. How much for this house

    £12 all day long in my area. Could do 4 the same in an hour if all together. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. How to run two reels off one pump

    The problem will be once one person dead ends their pole flow the other ones pressure will shoot up. We've tried this and it is a complete pain.
