    Hi Eaton,

    I have spoken to Real and they are now looking for a specified account that all banks have to offer which is a deposit or client bank account, the reason for this is that it is treated seperately from your normal account and would not be included in the company assests if it was to go into liquidiation, I have spoken to barclays today and they advised that they do not charge for this service but this may be down to the individual bank. Barclays advised that it is still under your business name but they set it up so that it does not fall as part of you standard business acoount to enable this to sit between you and the customer.

    This process has been utilised with solicitors when large amounts of money are being trasfered from one user to anouther, this was the way i described it to barclays and they new what i wanted after this.

    Please let me know if you need any further assitance on this.

    As nobody has posted about renewables for at least a week I can only assume that since the RHI announcement you are all snowed under with work and haven't even had a chance to post on this thread
    I'm still waiting for the phone to start ringing but i'm sure it will, wont it???

    Markfxy - If you send me your MCS number i will see if we have had any enquiries come in from consumers looking for installations in your area.

    Eaton - hope you don't mind me asking.

    How long has it taken you to get to this stage and what's the approximate cost?

    I ask because on other threads there seem to be so many variables and it would be good to hear from the horse's mouth, if you see what I mean.

    Best of luck with the qualification and I hope you get a couple of jobs quickly before it's all forgotten!!

    taken a year all in but sure you could do it quicker, its a lot of paperwork and a lot of nights by the pc total cost est inc training, books, cert etc £3,00 ish plus vat, plus as i said a lot of time so factor that in and your pushing roughly inc training and paperwork min 60 hours
