You don't stand anywhere I'm afraid. If they're self-employed they run their business inside your shop. You're just a landlord in this scenario. They should all advertise their own business name, their own price lists and manage their own bookings and take their own payments.

If you aren't doing the above then technically you could be in trouble with HMRC.

Got ya. Hmmmm. I guess if there is a rule that no one can advertise in the shop then that's fine but they may just find somewhere else to rent. If they're paying to rent a chair they'll want the advantages of being able to advertise there I'd imagine.

Excelent advice from beautyej about ACAS, I have had good experiences with them as well but I would recommend emailing tham rather than calling them. That way you have someting in writing if anyone wants to get dificult later.

Sounds like you are worried about the competition with hair. Thing is, they are paying you to be there so remember they are effectively your clients too. Keep them happy and paying your bills ;)

The few I rented rooms from in the past had no respect for me and my business, wanted me to bend over backwards but were totally uninterested in accommodating me and my clients even though I was paying them. If I wasn’t allowed to advertise I’d have been out of there even faster.

Just think of the rent a chairs as another service. In fact a profitable service! No need for you to pay for products or use your time to do it, maybe a bit of water here and there. It’s like free work. It lets you get paid while you do something else and get paid for it. That’s like being paid twice for the same portion of time! Very cool!
