Why does this sound like a phishing exercise - are these prospective 'employers' checking to see if you are declaring all your earnings? Are you paid 'cash in hand'? Do you have accurate records and an accountant?
Do you really need the work?
BTW - £40 a fortnight sounds cheap - 1 visit or 2? how many hours?
TBH - in my book asking for references puts the price up.
£40 a fortnight is for two hrs and that's one visit. Go higher? It's quite a drive
I got the number and email off a friend who quoted for window cleaning. They said they managed lots of properties.
phishing- yes, why do they want my UTR number? i changed one of the numbers anyway before sending back because I couldn't understand why they need that info. I said £30,000 when in reality I am on tax credits. outI haven't worked that long but put five years, another lie. However, lying about this could be passed off as someone just trying to make themselves look good on a job application and I doubt HMRC will care. With the references two are all bank transfers from customers but one is cash in hand for years so maybe delete that one and use someone else. You got me worried now.
They are also asking things like-
Professional indeminity, employers liability! I don't even know what these mean so put N/A. I only have public liability
And are you chas accredited and what's construction phase? I guess it's a general application for everyone even if not relevant to me.
Another weird thing is when i went to flats the people who live there took my quote and said they would contact Tracey and had never heard of the name I was given' , maybe I should ask my friend where he got the contact
