        You've never tried eastern-europe, don't exactly know what are you talking about, but there couldn't be more serious in London than here.
        Companies are running for the initial capital, so they want high-quality, verrry quick and verrry cheap, on HQ i mean product must be marketable at Frankfurt Book Fair as well at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, but You know how it is, so could you tell me something about your alarm?

          Send me samples of your work... Together with a copy of your UK work permit. I may be able to point you in the right direction.

              you will need bank account here, as well as National insurance number, so as salary, income tax and national insurance can be paid.

                    To get a bank account, you need a UK address, a job, or college placement.
                    It HAS to be a government listed college, not one of the 100's of bogus ones here in london! Without these things, you will have a bad time. Rightly so too!
                    As a nation we are getting a bit fed up with spongers coming over.

                    But as long as you meet the above criteria, you will have a great time.

                    Else like all the others, you will be sleeping on the street !

                          The problem with these London "so called" colleges is.... They are run by foreigners for easy target foreign visitors. They are purely after your money!
                          It does the students no good, it does our economy no good! Get in touch with the british embassy, they will tell you all the legal implications. It may not be what you want to hear. But there are a lot of exploited Eastern europeans here at the moment, living in poverty, and earning next to nothing! AND the people organising it are wealthy "FAT CAT" eastern europeans!!! It is a real problem here in the UK!
                          Get advice from the correct people, they will not give you false hope!
                          The streets are not paved with gold here in London.... Why do you think I am leaving? The streets are paved with homeless people!

                            That's what i really never tought, but i think if i could get job there i won't have to pay 45%(it's not a joke) for the incometax, as i have to do it now. But the matter i want to move there, is not about the moneyl, i need my english better as You see.
                            About the streets: there are lots of homeless here, especially in cities there are lots of hard fated, but there are lots of lame ducks, i think if i want to do something and i'm in health, it depends on me first of first

                              Well income tax... NI contributions... council tax... VAT... Plus all the stealth taxes..... Probably work out to more than 45%!

                                Hi,

                                I'm currently looking for retouching agencies in London. Does anyone know any of the larger more reputable agencies/studios in London? The only ones I know of are Happy Finish based in Soho and Taylor James.

                                Maybe Im searching under the wrong headings.......are they...
