Planning is simply the pre-step that you may use it by structuring the main fields and areas that your business is based on. In other words, any business requires some fundamental areas to be covered, such as a place of business, product or service to sell, target costumer...etc (you can refer to our previous posts that determined those areas)

In this step there is one more question that should be answered which is: does planning stop on structuring or it may cover other features? Well, it does mainly deal with structuring but it continues to cover other features such as the legal requirements that your online business should adopt and apply; for example: information, description, giving notices, refund, and guidance and gaining trust...etc

First of all, I want to notify the readers that this post is specifically deals with the UK’s claims; however, to some extent the procedures are the same in the US and other European countries that provided such services. So let’s start

What is money claim online?

Making an online claim for money is a service established by the government under the sector of improving e-government. This service allow to anyone to claim his/her money online by filling an online formal form (court form) asking for his/her money as a claimant

In the UK, this service is provided by the UK Government Gateway, which established a trusted website for such kind of claims (MCOL: Money Claim Online)

Before making your claim

It should be minded that this service shall be your last option, as there are other ways to ask for your money such as by contacting directly with the defendant or through mediation; whereas this service considers expensive comparing to the other procedures and the result is not guaranteed.

Online claim restrictions

1.      Your claim must be under 100.000.00£

2.      You must ensure that your claim fall under the requirements that such service require, this is the claimant responsibility

3.      The claimant must be at least 18 years old

4.      The claim must be set against no more than two individuals or organisations

5.      In the UK, the place of the claim are restricted in England and Wales, as the claimant must provide a valid postcode to the specified address regarding these places

6.       The claimant must not be getting a legal aid

7.      The claimant must not be prevented by the court from making claims, because he/she is a ‘vexatious litigant’ (someone who uses court cases to harass other people)

The requirements needed to make an online claim

1.      You should register with MCOL website:

A.      You need (first and last name and an e-mail)

B.      You must choose to register as an individual or as an organisation

C.      Once you registered (choosing a password) you will be given an ID number for the Government Gateway and a Money Claim Online customer number.

2.      You have to fill the provided form (court form). Herein, you will be asked for these information:

A.      The title, name, address and postcode of the defendant

B.      The exact amount of money you are asking for, including interest (which is 8% of the amount each year)

C.      The details of your claim (the particulars of claim). Make sure to provide as much as you can of your claim. The form is limited to a certain number of words, so if you have more details to add you can mention that in the summary you made and declare that you will provide in future more details regarding your claim. In this case, you must send these details to the court and the defendant within 14 days from submitting your claim. However, you must send to the court a “certificate of service” form

D.     Payment details (your credit or debit card details, to pay for the costs of your claim)

E.      Your e-mail address

Make sure that the information you input are correct, where you may be charged a fee in case there was a mistake

4.      Payment (paying the court fees). You must pay for court fees as a followed process, the payment may be via your credit or debit card. (court fees)

5.      After these processes you can submit your form. And you can check the progress of your claim through this site at any time but the site will be updated during business hours

I’m writing this post to inform you all that I found the latest, real, amazing and powerful online business that can make you a huge sum of money in no time with no experience!!! (Sounds too good to be true, right??)

Do you know what I’m talking about??? No it’s not a software, system or program and it’s not an affiliate or a kind of online marketing

What you are looking for to generate wealth and happiness is simply this amazing opportunity!!! (This is a common lie that scammers use)

But, the fact is simply that any legitimate and success online business is (YOU), YES YOU!!! DO YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE {THIS IS THE REALITY}: ONLINE BUSINESS AND MARKETING ESTABLISHED TO REACH TO US (ONLINE USERS)

Now do you believe me if I said that I’ve just given you the main concept of how you can set a legitimate online business, (no or yes?? Please think carefully). Ok, what I’m asking is simply think about, adopt and apply these facts, steps and tips:

Ø  You are the owner and the seller (or the buyer!!!). Sell what you own or what you gain knowledge about (for example write and sell eBooks, or a book you read) in order to describe it as it should be. Acknowledge the fact that you must think as a buyer in order to sell your product, so set your business in a way that satisfied you as a buyer (is it hard to be true or adoptable? I do not think so)

Ø  Set your own online shop (site or blog), or sell through a trusty site such as Amazon or eBay...etc (you have a huge number of sites to choose from, some services might be free)

Ø  Use yourself as the only marketer or advertiser to your business before using others to promote your business (decrease the potential of abusing your service)

Ø  Do not pay to others to help you build your business, you can do it alone (search, look and read in order to develop your knowledge and skills, it might take some time but it is a great way to legalise your business or activity)

Ø  Ask for feedback and reviews to evaluate your own business, service and product

Ø  Set your own terms and conditions to legalise your business (do not set an oppressive term)

Ø  Establish a good policy that secure your users’ privacy and data

Ø  Protect your costumers (build a trust)

Ø  Build a good relation with your costumers

Ø  Act in accordance to the principle of good faith

So, is it clear now? (I hope so)

You are the business itself, the owner, seller, marketer, advertiser, builder or maybe the product... which you can control and assure its legitimacy and grant the necessary protection for your users or costumers; in which any online user may find your business realistic, legitimate and secure so he/she will advantage by dealing with such unique business. However, you may use others in futures to promote and market your business when it becomes beneficial

This is how you can gain money online (reasonable and legitimate,) by setting a small online business; (fact without any scam). Looking forward to read your comments, reviews and tips

Legal Studies, Comparative Study

comparative study
Comparative study

The importance of legal comparison studies
Why you need to use a comparative study or a comparative method in your research or assay?
How to structure a comparative study?

This post aims to answer one of the common questions we received recently regarding how I can structure a comparative study and why it considers important.

As we mentioned in previous post (click hereto read that post) , a comparative study deems as a method or tool that the researcher or student use to show the difference and provide his/her recommendation (whether by agreeing or modifying or adding to the conclusion of that comparative), which placed under the purpose of using the comparative study

Although, it should be minded that this post aims to simplify the use of comparative studies regarding legal researches or assays. Therefore, we will highlight the main points and tools that you should understand and adopt in order to be able to know how to use comparative method. So let’s start

The importance of comparative study:

1.      To show the connection and difference. As the comparative method set usually between two or more topics, methods, schools, laws, opinions...etc, it aims to show the connection and differences between the comparison subject

2.      To highlight the main concepts, titles, topics and principles that the comparative study will base on. Therefore, the reader will gain an easily understandable research that cover the main issues that aim to deal with the comparative study

3.      To set a globalising connection. It is known that most of the comparative law (which is part of the comparative study), aims to set a global connection between the laws regarding the topic that the comparative base on, in which this study must show the main connection and differences between the selector laws, which the researcher must provide a platform for his/her study

4.      To try to harmonise between the selected topics and the selector resources that the comparative shall base on. Whereas, the comparative study must set in connection with specific related topics in order to reach to a realistic outcomes

5.      To provide a useable and adoptable view that can demonstrate the outcome and recommendation of your comparison

6.      To provide a deep knowledge regarding the subject that the comparative study based on

 How to structure a comparative study?

1.      First of all, you need to specify your topic

2.      Then highlight the related resources (books, opinions, laws...etc)

3.      Then set a number of titles basing on the data you have

4.      Determine exactly why you want to do a comparative study, in order to set a draft outcomes (the purpose will lead to outcome)

5.      Specify the connections and differences

6.      Try to evaluate the size of the comparative

7.      Make sure to provide your view while comparing

8.      Set the outcomes in numbers (list) and place your recommendations accordingly

This simply how you can structure and benefit from using a comparative method or study

An example determine the process of a comparative study

Let’s say that I want to compare between two laws or views:

1. First of all, I will specify the related Articles or views, (for example Article 1 of the law X, with Article 2 of the law Y. Or view 1 with view 2)

2. Then I will read them carefully and analyse them in accordance to their content

3. According to the analysis I made, I will set my draft structure that the comparative shall base on between the X and Y laws, (the main points, why we compare, where is the difference, what the reader can expect from the comparative...etc)

4. Also, according to the analysis, I’ll identify the main titles or topics of my study (X1, X2... Y1, Y2)

5. After doing so, I’ll start my comparative by writing a brief introduction explains the cause, aim, purpose, method... etc of the comparative study

6. Then I’ll start working on the content of the comparative (by saying Article 1 of the X law said ... while Article 2 of the Y law said. Or view 1 said ... while view 2 said ... etc)

7. During the previous process, I’ll be able to highlight the differences and conflicts between the content of the selected laws or views, which I’ll be able to use them later in the conclusion

8. Finally, I’m ready to write the conclusion basing on the study titles and contents, and more importantly basing on the highlighted points that I made during my study. In which I can use in my findings and recommendations at the end of the comparative study
