Hi all, CONTRACTORS & SUB-CONTRACTORS. I'm having a few catchup jobs done at home, where I've been reminded of some pitfalls to avoid. The job that I'm having done just now, is being undertaken by one man, so he in effect becomes my main contractor. So, when the job is complete, I will pay him. If the job was more substantial requiring more than one contractor, it's an advantage even for fee, to select by agreement the main contractor. He it is who will oversee the total job. Also, it's him who I pay. If a subcontractor asks for a direct payment, when his part is complete, it's important that before making any payment, I make sure that the main contractor gives the thumbs up, otherwise, I could be liable to pay him as well. The rules of liability with contractors & subcontractors are quite complex. Please carry on with your knitting now. Thank you.

Philip, I have contracted my knitting out to my wife. Am I now the contractor and she the subcontractor as I must make sure that no one pays her and all payments come to me from the client who is myself. This is getting complicated. Sad

I can't knit. Like playing the recorder, it's a basic skill I never gained at school. I am good at building Ikea furniture and defrosting the freezer, so swings and roundabouts. Cool
