I'm a real mish mash. Taught overseas - moved back to UK 8 years ago and got a parttime job (2/3 days a week)in a school as a Welfare officer (guidance and support). I also coach athletics parttime and do a few hours a week as a holistic therapist. It's sooo long since I've taught in a school (Chemistry/biology although I taught PE in China without a qualification) that I feel I would be both overwhelmed and have difficulty finding a job.
I haven't taught since the late 90's and was trying to avoid that LOL
i thought you were a teacher ?
Thanks! That's thrown a real spanner in my plans. I guess the best I could hope for is to run the odd meditation group with friends and maybe a donation box. Back to the drawing board lol

U cud get a biz license by renting an electronic office from another emirate like ajman. It is quite reasonable, that way u cud legally work from home.My DH did this a couple of years ago before shifting to Dxb. I am not sure if this is valid for ur profession, but u cud explore the option.
You're not being obtuse at all. You're not the first for whom it has come as a surprise that a business can't be run from home here but what you're being told is absolutely correct.How do people get around it?By just going ahead and hoping for the best. Lots of people run businesses from home, be it baking, massage, hairdressing, or any number of other things. Only you can decide if the risk of getting caught is worth it.ETA: There are also legit companies that allow you to rent 'office space' (basically, it gets you an address and phone number and whatever else you need to fulfill the requirements of the law) but I think (really don't know) that the cost is somewhat prohibitive for a small home business.edited by m_king on 26/05/2012
To operate a business of any kind you must be a registered business. To register a business here you must rent office space.
I aplogise for being obtuse but how do people who do personal training, teach swimming etc manage? Do they have to work for a company?
Sorry you're not allowed to operate a business from home here.
In order to set up a small business from home offering reiki, massage, meditation and personal training would I require to go through the full process/costs of obtaining a business visa? I would imagine only doing a couple of hours a day at most. Any advice on above appreciated.Thanks in advance.
