    Don't know where this should be posted so I'm putting it here also want to get into investment banking in the future.

    I run a business during my university studies which I make 0 money from, I mainly started it to take on responsibility for my future career choice. Should I have registered this business with company's house. I have given my "company" a name but I only do the work for family or family's friends.

    I do not take any money from any clients rather just do the job for free.

    I should also mention that I have put this on my CV as one of my Current employments. Should I put something beneath it like Its done on a voluntary basis since I don't take any money from it. Been doing it for 2 years.

    I would assume It's okay on your CV. If you get an interview I would mention what you said above about the responsibility bit.

    You don't have a business - you do odd jobs for free (for friends). There's a big difference.

    If he does a set job for many clients I would say he has a business, If it is odd jobs like anything from taking the bins out and then the next day fixing their car, then I would agree with you it's not a business.

    I like to put a little disclaimer that these are only my views on the situation and I am not trying to disrespect others on this thread.

    Thanks
