John (PS4GC) [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [161] but the computer can't do it and ... so

[183] ... This form here it's just a fairly short one,i could you just ... tick the appropriate boxes for me.
[184] It's a bit of a market survey ... research .
John (PS4GC) [185] [reading] How did I hear about it? []
[186] Erm ... well I didn't actually ... hear about it, I'd already known that sch that such schemes existed .
Ian (PS4GD) [187] Right yeah.
John (PS4GC) [188] And it merely occurred to me, actually I was sitting in the unemployment benefit office and I said to them er er at one of my interviews,
Ian (PS4GD) [189] Mm.
John (PS4GC) [190] Probably I'd be better off going self-employed wouldn't I? and they said, Well in that case you'll need to talk to the Chamber of Commerce [...]

Ian (PS4GD) [...]
John (PS4GC) [330] [...] the only erm problem I had I think with the basic er terms as outlined in this document are the fact that I'm going to be wor erm intending to work for fif at least fifty of the fifty two weeks in the year at it when of course erm certainly as we'd already agreed on my erm ... business plan ... within the summer month from the ... the end of July until the beginning of September
Ian (PS4GD) [331] Yes, yes.
John (PS4GC) [332] it's highly unlikely [laughing] I'm gonna get any business at all.
Ian (PS4GD) [333] Right, yes .
John (PS4GC) [334] In any case because of the nature of
Ian (PS4GD) [335] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [336] what is being offered

John (PS4GC) [357] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [358] Anything longer than that erm ... it just depends really on the time of the ... erm ... your ... the time of the year or how many months you've

Ian (PS4GD) [544] That's it.
John (PS4GC) [545] which is one of the two [...] that I've got [...] because the other one I've got to deal with is the ... self-employed ... national insurance contributions
Ian (PS4GD) [546] Right.
John (PS4GC) [547] form as well, of course .
Ian (PS4GD) [548] Can I ... just take the numbers off those forms?

John (PS4GC) [554] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [555] of what's in everyone's [...] .
John (PS4GC) [556] This this came as part of a package
Ian (PS4GD) [557] Right.
John (PS4GC) [558] [...] I I rang Hill House in Mansfield [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [559] Right.
[560] [...] useful
John (PS4GC) [561] how about it.
[562] I have another matter to talk with them actually about my wife's liability to ... class to ... contributions.
[563] There's a ... a long outstanding erm discussion going on between us and Newcastle.
[564] It's been going on for about seventeen months now ... and the ... in chief man at Hill House was rather interested to hear that we'd not actually had it resolved yet, and asked for the reference numbers and ... .
[565] Newcastle were on the phone to us within twenty [laughing] minutes of him putting his phone down [] .
[566] Things now seem to be moving.
Ian (PS4GD) [567] Good.
[568] [...] to get these from.
[569] You can go dow go down to local benefit office
John (PS4GC) [570] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [571] [...] we can get a small ... you know quantity but to actually get [...]
John (PS4GC) [572] Well thi this is a complete pack that comes and there's obviously ... erm from ... the ... information that was included with it erm ... here we are.
[573] Erm they they obviously run a check on what was actually in the pack
Ian (PS4GD) [574] Pack, right.
John (PS4GC) [575] and whether you asked for anything else.
Ian (PS4GD) [576] Yeah, yes.
[577] And does it give an address or [...] ?
John (PS4GC) [578] I think it was nearly your ... your area ... .

Ian (PS4GD) [586] It is really. [...]
John (PS4GC) [587] [...] .
Ian (PS4GD) [588] That's a useful er ... you know a useful
John (PS4GC) [589] It is.
Ian (PS4GD) [590] [...] .
John (PS4GC) [591] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [592] [...] get some ... [...] .
John (PS4GC) [593] It might be an idea to have a supply.
Ian (PS4GD) [594] Mm.
[595] ... Yes [...] shall ... pay another call to our benefit office and say, I want some of those ... nice mauve coloured
John (PS4GC) [596] I suspect I suspect the local office probably won't because it was they ... when I rang them here in Newark and I said, Look I'm about to go self-employed ,
Ian (PS4GD) [597] Mm, mm.
John (PS4GC) [598] Oh we don't keep things like that it's ... where do you live?
[599] Southwell.
[600] It's Hill House, Mansfield.
[601] You've gotta apply there .
Ian (PS4GD) [602] [...] Lincoln [...] .
John (PS4GC) [603] So from Newark it's probably Lincoln
Ian (PS4GD) [604] Yeah.
John (PS4GC) [605] isn't it?
Ian (PS4GD) [606] Yes, yes
John (PS4GC) [607] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [608] normally that erm ... [...]
John (PS4GC) [609] [...] Southwell Southwell faces Mansfield which rather gets us in the [...] stick you see because we have to come here for ... Benefit Office interviews and things like that but you got to Mansfield
Ian (PS4GD) [...]
John (PS4GC) [610] for other things.
Ian (PS4GD) [611] That's right, yeah.
John (PS4GC) [612] But most of the people who come here for interviews goes to Lincoln ...
Ian (PS4GD) [613] Yeah, yeah.
John (PS4GC) [614] and er ... with my son particularly earlier on in his career [...] things were going round and round in circles and in the end I had to step in at one point, grab all the papers as they came past as they were and saying, [...] come on.
[615] [laugh] Cos one office was playing the other office [...] off against each other.
Ian (PS4GD) [616] Yes, yeah yeah.
John (PS4GC) [617] It was quite amazing.
Ian (PS4GD) [618] Fine.
[619] So that's [...]
John (PS4GC) [620] I'm looking forward to this.
Ian (PS4GD) [621] virtually everything.
[622] Good.
[623] ... [...] as I say we'll be in touch with you in ... in that three months time
John (PS4GC) [624] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [625] but if in any reason you know you wanted to come and have a discussion or there was a problem or
John (PS4GC) [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [626] er there's anything [...]
John (PS4GC) [627] [...] things are looking clearer now than they did ... you know a few weeks ago.
Ian (PS4GD) [628] Yeah.
[629] Fine, great.
John (PS4GC) [630] And so I think [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [631] I'm looking forward to [...] .
John (PS4GC) [632] possibilities are ... are definitely there.
Ian (PS4GD) [633] Mm.
John (PS4GC) [634] I can start advertising myself now [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [635] Right, right certainly.
John (PS4GC) [636] and I'm hoping that the local authority will start coming across with ... a bit of work for me.
Ian (PS4GD) [637] Good.
[638] How long did the interview last at the TEC.
[639] Was it a fair ... was it an in and out ... quickly or ?
John (PS4GC) [640] Erm ... fifteen minutes.
Ian (PS4GD) [641] Fifteen minutes, right yes .
John (PS4GC) [642] Yes.
[643] Most of which ... time we talked about organs.
[644] I can play you the ... er [laughing] recording of the interview []
Ian (PS4GD) [645] Right.
John (PS4GC) [646] [laughing] if you like.
[647] It's on the front of this tape [] .
[648] But, no I'd better not had I.
Ian (PS4GD) [649] No, no.
[650] Confidentiality.
John (PS4GC) [651] Yes.
[652] ... That's er
Ian (PS4GD) [653] Yes alright [...] .
John (PS4GC) [654] Yes a very nice gentleman.
Ian (PS4GD) [655] Yes [...] it was John ?
John (PS4GC) [656] John yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [657] Right, yes, yes.
[658] They they do occasionally change ... them around ...
John (PS4GC) [659] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [660] Erm ... and some people that we ... we send out sort of tend to be there for either half an hour and others [...] sort of.
John (PS4GC) [661] It possibly depends on the nature of what you're ... intending
Ian (PS4GD) [662] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [663] to set up.
[664] I mean my application essentially I should think was one of the simplest ...
Ian (PS4GD) [665] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [666] that could possibly be.
[667] There's no stuck ... movements and
Ian (PS4GD) [668] Mm.
John (PS4GC) [669] things like that involved.
Ian (PS4GD) [670] No I mean [...] we do send the business plan up prior to the [clears throat] to the [...]
John (PS4GC) [671] Of course, yes [...] .
Ian (PS4GD) [672] but even so I think some
John (PS4GC) [673] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [674] of the ones [...] ... [...] , yes, yes
John (PS4GC) [675] They look at it when the client comes in
Ian (PS4GD) [676] rather than.
[677] I mean we did have
John (PS4GC) [678] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [679] one which ... must have been probably about so thick
John (PS4GC) [680] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [681] and I can't foresee the chap ... reading that in a ...
John (PS4GC) [682] No.
Ian (PS4GD) [683] and absorbing it and er ... [...] they just ... want to make sure
John (PS4GC) [684] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [685] that the person there is ... er
John (PS4GC) [686] Actually did write the plan
Ian (PS4GD) [687] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [688] and knows what they're about, yes .
Ian (PS4GD) [689] But even but even in that case we did have ... er did have a case [...] with a young ... a youngish lad who his accountant had written it
John (PS4GC) [690] Oh.
Ian (PS4GD) [691] was very sketchy
John (PS4GC) [692] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [693] [...] financial projection side was fine you know
John (PS4GC) [694] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [695] full of ... cash flow charts and budgets for three years, projected profit and loss and all [...] .
[696] But the written part was only very sketchy [...]
John (PS4GC) [697] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [698] on on erm ... one ... side of A four ... and it was obviously wasn't written by a young ... man
John (PS4GC) [699] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [700] and erm ... the they di did pass him but
John (PS4GC) [701] Oh.
Ian (PS4GD) [702] they did obviously have to ask him a lot more questions
John (PS4GC) [703] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [704] so hence the interview
John (PS4GC) [705] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [706] lasted quite ... a period of time because they wanted to make sure that ... he knew what he was doing and everything
John (PS4GC) [707] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [708] was ... you know factual within the ... in the written part.
John (PS4GC) [709] [...] I I must say I've also been ... er you know very ... very impressed and er learnt quite a lot just attending these ... courses that you've you've got running here .
Ian (PS4GD) [710] Yes, yes.
John (PS4GC) [711] It helps to put things that you already knew back in focus
Ian (PS4GD) [712] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [713] and remind you of some of the other things that you didn't.
Ian (PS4GD) [714] Mm, mm.
[715] Yes so i i ... at one time to get onto the ... to apply for the Enterprise
John (PS4GC) [716] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [717] Allowance Scheme one had to ... attend a mandatory seven day Start Your Own Business course.
John (PS4GC) [718] Right.
[719] Yes I realized this [...] .
Ian (PS4GD) [...]
John (PS4GC) [720] This was when they first started wasn't it ?
Ian (PS4GD) [721] That's right which was ... run two days a week for over ... for three and a half weeks.
John (PS4GC) [722] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [723] Then produce a business plan and the interv go for the interview which ... [...] looking [...] sort of month six weeks
John (PS4GC) [724] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [725] before you could actually get onto the scheme.
[726] But here in Newark because we don't have sufficient numbers coming through
John (PS4GC) [727] No.
Ian (PS4GD) [728] [...] we tend to do it all on a one to one basis
John (PS4GC) [729] Right.
Ian (PS4GD) [730] and have a back up of the ... you know the the individual days sort of
John (PS4GC) [731] [...] then in a position
Ian (PS4GD) [732] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [733] to use your judgement as to whether you say to somebody, Yeah you must finish this before I'm gonna consider you or ...
Ian (PS4GD) [734] Yes.
John (PS4GC) [735] Yeah okay we'll put your name forward but it would be nice if you attended.
Ian (PS4GD) [736] Mm.
[737] But before it was a mandatory seven day course regardless of that person's expertise or ... [...] you know ... qualifications .
John (PS4GC) [738] [...] might have been [...] their own company [...] life before they ...
Ian (PS4GD) [739] Yes, exactly.
John (PS4GC) [740] went unemployed and then decided to take advantage.
Ian (PS4GD) [741] Yeah I mean we do get people who come in on the sort of the Friday morning and they've already got their ... done their business [...] perhaps sought out ... professional advice elsewhere
John (PS4GC) [742] Yeah.
Ian (PS4GD) [743] they just really need a d discussion with somebody local, get some a bit of extra information [...]
John (PS4GC) [744] And sign on.
Ian (PS4GD) [745] [...] but to make that person go through a ... a seven day course and wait a month
John (PS4GC) [...]
Ian (PS4GD) [746] is ... nonsense so ... it is a much more flexible now.
[747] Because we don't have the sufficient numbers and can't keep people waiting for ... courses we tend to have these ... do it on a one to one basis ... which ... you get, I don't know ... .
[748] I think from ... generally from courses are quite good because you do learn something and you're
John (PS4GC) [749] Oh yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [750] meeting other people in similar circumstances and no matter how much you tend to know, you'll ... learn and feed off each other
John (PS4GC) [751] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [752] Whereas one to one it's just ... you and that particular ... you know business [...] .
John (PS4GC) [753] I've been most appreciative of the ... erm clarity and incisiveness of 's ... [...] set out .
Ian (PS4GD) [754] She's very [...] .
John (PS4GC) [755] She she's a born teacher.
Ian (PS4GD) [756] Mm.
John (PS4GC) [757] [laugh] Should should [...] I think the ... the the tax ... erm ... [...] priv private private tax ... advice gain is the is the education [...] with her .
Ian (PS4GD) [758] Mm, mm.
John (PS4GC) [759] She she's absolutely excellent.
Ian (PS4GD) [760] Yes, yes.
[761] We always get er ... you know very good erm ... sort of report back er [clears throat] from the courses that she ... she runs, yeah.
John (PS4GC) [762] Yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [763] I think it's a difficult ... subject er in ... one where somebody's starting up own business who hasn't ... erm had any experience before
John (PS4GC) [764] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [765] that you know ... book keeping, finance and taxation i it's
John (PS4GC) [766] Mm.
Ian (PS4GD) [767] a ... a minefield in a wilderness
John (PS4GC) [768] It's a bit of a headache isn't it, yes.
Ian (PS4GD) [769] and something that ... one can be quite erm ... fearful of.
John (PS4GC) [770] I'm rather lucky in a way.
[771] I've a father in law who was ... er for a long time in charge of the erm ... er financial side of the P A Y E side of the er National Dental Estimates Board in Eastbourne in Sussex
