Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX be clear if I can,
Business 1 is a master licence for Scotland (sole trader)
Business 2 is the parent company, the franchisor.
Is there any difference if the master licence is carried out as a sole trader or Ltd company? And if that is the case, then that would mean I was allowed to essentially grant myself master licences for territories, paying the Main company an annual licence fee, but keeping the turnover in each territory below the VAT threshold?
last one, promise -
And it wouldn't matter if the parent company was granting master licenses to another company, even if sole shareholder of both companies was the same person?
