Well that was swifter than I thought likely.
Robotic Shed is now some kind of legal entity that will, at some point, file accounts. It has a director (me) and a shareholder (also me). I stopped short of also appointing myself secretary on the grounds that it just seemed greedy. The intent is now to apply for Microsoft’s BizSpark programme so I can get up to date with Visual Studio (my single 2008 copy is creaking at the seams) for programming Free Company and possibly grow the business in the future in ways that are still mysterious to me.
I’ll let you know how that goes.
