  1. Price increase via Gocardless

    Simple but effective I suppose! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  2. I'd like to be rising my prices every year by 5%. And I've got around 40% of customers signed up to gocardless (and trying to improve that figure!). How is it best to inform the customers that are on gocardless? Can I do it via Cleaner Planner? As thats the system I use.
  3. GoCardless

    I’ve been trying to push this for at least the last 6 months, and my “windows cleaned” slips only mention “pay by gocardless”. Yet still I don’t have a great percentage signed up, perhaps only 40%. Any tips?! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  4. Thanks for that-I didn't want to over complicate invoices for domestic by also showing the vat charged [emoji1303] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. I've just had to do exactly this about a month ago. I decided to increase the prices as I'd rather lose a few clients than pay the vat (let's say the vat would be 20K, I reasoned I'd rather lose 20K of work than swallow the 20k myself. If we did lose 20k of work, as worst case scenario, it would've been the same as swallowing the vat myself). Felt risky, but sent letters, and to date we've lost only 1% of our clients.

  6. Licence for operating cradles?!

    You don't need IRATA for cradles and there's no training body/association that look after working in cradles. However, you need to be trained by the installers for your guys to be deemed 'Competent'. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. VAT Reg for dometsic

    To be honest I'm mainly concerned about the 20% price rise all the customers will have. Anyone else done this? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  8. VAT Reg for dometsic

    Oh man-sounds like a lot more work! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. VAT Reg for dometsic

    We're on the flat rate scheme and no, we don't give cash customers receipts at the moment. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. Anyone one on here VAT registered? We've got to start charging domestic customers soon and I'm worried about the 20% increase in prices. Anyone lost customers over this?

    Cheers guys. I was wondering the same thing about the 0845 number-anyone else use 0800? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. Recommendations for gutter vac camera ???

    We just bought a GoPro session-really good-and links to your phone screen Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    I think it was around £800 to get the licence from memory -(and a week off work!) Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Thanks Pjj-we used an outside company for the filming. We looked into getting a caa licence to do it ourselves but it seemed too much hassle to be honest. They did all the editing-so I can't take any credit really, just gave them pointers Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Thanks! Still making tweaks to get it right. Getting the website right is almost a job in itself! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
