Stained glass work / repair - part of a cleaning business ?!


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it would be legal to add this service as part of my cleaning business ?!  I would not prefer to have two businesses when I do self assessment at the end of the year ... 

I intend to purchase some tools / machinery too and just keep all invoices as a business expense ?  

Many window cleaners do lots of other jobs like handy man / gardening and probably submit the income under one business ?! 

I spend many hrs in my shed and few customers asked me to do some stained glass for them so i thought why not -  obviously im not an expert  but  I enjoy it 

any advice ?

I don't see why you can't, HMRC just want you to declare your earnings. What I would say though is if you get busy on both window businesses you'll hit VAT threshold quickly.

I think that’s fantastic. Keep your hand in both and see what happens. I’m assuming you can charge a premium for good craftsmanship and it’s great to have something to do when the weathers poor or you want a change. Good for you amigo.
