hi I'm just looking for some advice. I currently work part time for a caring firm, I do mostly cleaning, shopping and escorting to and from appointments. Lately my hours are all over the place as I am on a zero hour contract. I e asked for my hours to be made up to 20 a week and lately I seem only to be averaging 15 hours a week. Which is fetching me in a whopping 96.00 a week on minimum wage. Also this is monthly pay. Lately my work has been telling clients I shall go to them at certain times when I am actually not in work etc. resulting in my clients being let down on a few occasions, I've know deciding wether of not to give in my notice and start my own self employed cleaning business, where I can do the hours I need and earn more than minimum wage, a lot of my clients have been telling me I should take the plunge for months I've just never bothered. I'm now really contemplating on doing it. I have told some clients that I am contemplating on leaving and they have wished me look on my new venture, but have also said that they would like to employ me if I do decide to leave as they like my work and be sad to see me go. I've looked into the tax side of it and national insurance etc, and I firmly believe that I could make this work and double my income with hard work and dedication to the job . I've already looked at how to promote myself etc.. But just want some advice on if I hand my notice in and go it alone if clients follow and hire could I get in any trouble, also any other tips from anyone who has their own self employed cleaning business would greatly be appreciated. Thank you for reading.
