    Hello,


    I'm willing to open an online website selling gold jelelleries,as I just relocated now to Uk I havent got a NIN,my questions are:

    1.Am I allowed to start the business without a NIN(National Insurance Number)?
    2.If I do hallmark the items with an authorised office to do that is there anything else I got to do before i activate the website?
    3.Are any special terms&conditions about paying additional taxes when dealing with gold?
    4.Any ideas about safe places or how the items can be keep in a secure place?

    Thanks

    cihi2001 a lot will depend on the status of your visa, assuming you have one. You might want to look into whether or not the visa you have allows you to operate a business in the UK.

    Hi,

    It is not an easy thing that you are going to perform. You are required NIN (National Insurance Number) because it is legally necessary for you to run your business.

    Be sure to get a NIN to prevent future problems.
