    My customers like my sense of humour so I think you're a little hasty to move me because I think a SOH is a good thing in business... especially for sales.
    it takes les than a month to get SC in the first place. The agent is lying...

    It doesn't, that's why he's avoiding the question.

    He hasn't signed a contract.

    Perhaps I'll start moving other thread to general?

    The agent (if they exist) might not be lying
    The contract (if it exists) might not require SC
    And the way things are going, someone might not exist on here much longer

    You're not the first person to suggest that, I do wonder about these agents but I'm new to this. My status in the draft contract in terms of ltd or umbrella is TBD. Am I doing something wrong here? If so then these kind of conversations are helpful despite ludicrous accusations about the nature of my existence as a real person.

    WTFH I've got to go out now but I will PM you later to understand your concerns.

    And why am I on the bench?

    Last time I applied it took 3 months... but that was a long time ago - while some of the posters here hadn't even started school...

    It took 6 months for me to get my SC renewed back in 2015. Heaven forbid what would happen if I applied for DV. How on earth would I juggle that one around in contracting?

    UKSV are really inefficient these days.

    I've put that into google translator and I'm getting nothing. I'm sure it's really witty or perhaps an in joke.


    In case you've never had the experience, you have to stand two abreast in the job centre so the government can claim they are cutting dole queues.
