    LLCs can't post on open forums (I believe) so it's unlikely you'll get an answer. Sorry.

    Well .. I looked onto it and have the details.. about £10,00 to set up and £14,000 for the franchise.. so a blooomin fortune.. think it can be VERY lucrative though and will be very popular.. as is already!

    I would imagine the 10k setting up costs will include the in depth training and examinations required to become a LL counsellor - I know my counsellor had to attend loads of courses once she was established so there must have been lots of residentials beforehand?

    Hey there everyone

    I know Tootsie has loked into this and she says it was approx £14k so not sure about the other £10k that has been mentioned.

    Seems rather steep doesn't it - I think you can certaily earn a decent living though.

    As I believe it, it's not a franchise. Once you decide you don't want to be an LLC anymore, you lose your initial investment! Plus you have to spend about 5grand a year on advertising, plus run business premises etc etc. Megadosh!

    When i looked into it last year the total first year investment would have been about £25k. I decided against it because as Isobel said its not a franchise and ongoing financial committment in advertising and the office is required. Yes i could have made brilliant money from it but it would have taken more of a full time committment than i wanted and also for that sort of investment i would have wanted some sort of guarantee from them re referrals.

    I know that they do give each LLC an area though unlike cambridge.

    I went with cambridge and have been very pleased with my decision!
