  • Thank you for every other informative web site. Where else may just I am getting that kind of info written in such a perfect means? I’ve a challenge that I am just now running on, and I have been on the glance out for such information.

  • Check out the applicable laws for a massage therapist or aromatherapist. The laws will be similar for a Reiki practitioner.

    Check which associations exist for Reiki practitioners. Placing the words “registered and insured practioner” after your name means a lot for your credibility.

  • Check out the Inland Revenue website for dates and locations of free seminars on starting in business. They’re very good and cover everything you need to know.

    Another option is to contact your local Business Link and go on one of their free starting in business seminars. They cover more than just the tax and insurance questions. Well worth doing.

    Good luck with your business plans!

  • A reiki healer working from home would be self employed. The tax office can provide you with a tax return form for the self employed. You need to keep good records of all income and outgoings. Some of your home expenses could be claimed as business expenses – a certain proportion of heat, light, telephone charges, even council tax. And of course insurance. For that, google public liability insurers or look up the yellow pages. If you belong to a professional group of reiki or alternative healers, they may have ideas about suitable insurers.

    You may need council permission for change of use of premises, and need somewhere suitable for clients to park outside your house.

    Decide how much time you wish to devote to this, and how much per hour you are going to charge. You may have to spend some time building up a client base before you earn anything like £300 per week.
