Hi, the government website says: 6.1 The treatment of private tuition
This table will help to decide whether the private tuition supplied by an individual teacher, working in a personal capacity, is exempt from VAT.If the teacher is and then
a sole proprietor or member of a partnership the subject is one taught regularly in a number of schools or universities
takes on a teacher or teachers to help in carrying out the instruction it’s an exempt supply of private tuitioneven though the tuition delivered by teacher (as sole proprietor or partner) may still qualify as exempt private tuition, the tuition that others deliver is standard-rated
If a teacher takes on another teacher (or several others) to assist, either:there should be an apportionment of supplies of tuition between exempt and taxable elements (using any fair and reasonable method)
all supplies of tuition should be treated as taxable regardless of who actually delivers it

What happens when I employ someone to help me to do the tutoring. I want to buy into a franchise and need to decide to go as Sole Trader or Ltd company.
