    So when I started out it was 'hello miss, would you like your windows cleaned?' and window cleaning it was, simple, so Green Window Cleaner Seemed appropriate.

    Now it's Window Cleaning, Gutter Cleaning, Power Washing, Domestic and Office Cleaning, Commercial Kitchen Cleaning, End of Tenancy Cleaning, Builders Cleaning, Solar Panel cleaning and more.

    However Vista Print can't fit:

    'Green Window, Gutter, Power, Domestic & Office, Commercial Kitchen, End of Tenancy, Builders Cleans, Solar Panels and more.'

    All on one line, so it is time to re-brand, re name and go LTD

    The reason for the Ltd part is I calculate we should be at VAT threshold by summer 2016 and instead of messing about trying to duck it I'm just going to let it roll and go through it and being LTD will give my personal property some insurances in case I balls it all up!

    So thoughts? Suggestions on a total re-brand?

    Why would I put it in the missus name?

    And if I do hire any one it is strictly as a bona fide sub or they will go on the books. I would rather deal with the bs of legit govt rules than the nightmares of doing something they can screw me for.

    Also having employed 'under the table' before you have to have 100% faith that when the little shits let you down and you fire them they don't shop you in.

    Also if you get audited and they calculate say £15000 of money thats just 'vanished' (in the form of under the table payments) you will end up paying the tax any how so why not make the little pricks legit and let them pay the tax from the off?

    If you're going more corporate perhaps a more staid image, muted colours and uniformity, or perhaps a bold colourful design to stand out and 'jump off the page'. Keeping a green image will probably help you I'd have thought, if you try to recycle stuff And use the mostly thoughtfully green methods and approaches - the companies you work with can feel better about themselves and incorporate it into their ethos

    Well this is mostly due to how the little mother ******* behave in the first place.

    As I move forward towards net summer it will be the employees that are critical in getting the firm where I want it to be so for this they need enticement as well as security.

    I'm trying to structure it so I get employees that come to me because they want to work for my company as opposed to endless string of ******* that are just appeasing the dole office.

    Now of course you have to pay pension contributions for them but I reckon we could all do a lot better for employees for example, living wage as minimum wage (if not better) perhaps some sort of health insurance so if they are off sick for any length of time or need any specialist health care down the road then you have it covered.

    Also by going PLC you can even give shares as incentives so that come time for dividend they get a nice bonus and so on.

    Lots of ideas rolling round in the old grey matter but that's mostly caused by zero sleep and 19'000'000 cups of coffee. :p

    After a good nights sleep it will be back to zero hours contracts and minimum wage and they will have to pay for their own squeegees!
