Hi there, you may want to think of re naming your self first, lol and with regards to what to charge etc, its all down to your personal charge what you need to earn.

Tax wise etc you would be much better employing an accountant to sort your business affairs etc, worth their weight.

Insurances etc certainly are not cheap so you need to factor everything (hire/reward insurance plus goods in transit cover, fuel, wear and tear and finally a bit of a wage for yourself) into your rates.

All the best for the future
