Educo London

Educo London

Educo London aims to provide premium educational services at affordable rates to students aged 7-18 nationwide. Our aim is to create a proactive learning environment where students build their self-esteem and confidence, which in turn will result in improved academic success.

 

Established by husband and wife, Hinesh and Nemesha Patel, Educo London’s priority is to provide personalised lesson plans, goal-setting and one-to-one attention to all of our students through private tutoring. What makes us unique is the individual attention our students receive and the parental support we offer to answer queries and provide reassurance about academic progress.

 

It’s a family-run business and at the heart of it is a passion for helping students excel in all aspects of their life. We are also driven to help the community and have created an initiative where our tutors can volunteer a portion of their time to help students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds.

 

Furthermore, we are launching our virtual career/mentorship series, where we speak to professionals from both typical and ‘non-typical’ careers to share their insights. The idea to start this project stemmed from the very contrasting educational backgrounds of both founders, who believe that socio-economic backgrounds should not limit a child’s career prospects.

ASSET PROTECTION – Change the owner but stay in control!.

 

Discover how you can protect your assets from everyday threats and protect your legacy

Many owners of assets fail to realise that it’s merely owning the asset that creates the liability; the solution is simple…………………………

Wealth protection structures are among the most valuable, and least exploited, methods of reducing liabilities and threats.

The solution is simple – it requires you to change the owner. This does not sit well with most people as owning something gives us a feeling of comfort and security.

Working where Accountancy and the Law overlap we provide a solution that allows you to retain complete control of the asset until you are ready to pass it on.

The solution has nothing to do with tax. It’s all about ownership and control and legally structuring your assets.

On the subject of tax, however, your non-compliance of the 2018 GDPR  regulations can actually qualify for a rebate of your Corporation and Self-Assessment payments from the last two years!  A very simple form; a decision on whether you have a case within 24 hours.
