    Is it more cost effective to put money through your account buy your fuel with company card and claim the tax relief on it, or use the occasional invisible job money to buy some of your fuel?

    always get you fuel from the bussiness, otherwise your just paying income tax on yor fuel, theres enough revenue going to gordon brown as it is.use you magic money for beer and shopping, to keep your wages down and spend all your profit on tools and staples.spent £10000 on a new van/logos/printed stationary/web site last year just cos it made me feel sick to have to give 40% of it to govenment.

    www.ellishurford.co.uk its only one page with an enquiry post, the graphic designer was doing a lot of stationary for me, went a bit overboard (thomson local advert/invoices/quotes/letter heads/van signage design/compliment slip/bus cards/A5 notepads and trendy pens) so he sort of did the web page too. N.B i put a pen in envelopes with my invoices, customers don't have an excuse for not writing a cheque then.

    haven't had a any cold calls from web site, just existing customers, had a lot of people mailing me via website tho. it just looks good to have a .co.uk site address on side of van, people think its a huge set up then.The pens worked out to be 45p each (250 pens for 115 including design) which i didn't realise how much until it twigged a few days later in pub, nearly fainted!
    turned out to be so expensive because the are printed on both sides, logo one side, phone number on other.give a bag to my local pub every month just befor pub quiz, every single one gets taken home, now thats positive advertising! same with A5 pads, give them to the waitress to take orders on.
