If they were doing it free for you, they weren’t doing something that added value to the company that paid their wages.
Out of the last two of those that tendered, there wasn't anything between them. They were both asked if the Directors could have free legal services thrown in. One said no and the other said yes, so we obviously went with the one that did.

Can you ban someone from a shop for any reason or no particular reason. I just wondered cause if I was a shop owner I`d ban awkward customers.

TANSTAAFL*

Also, even though they didn't charge for this, it would have a perceived value that would need to declared in Directors' Emoluments as a benefit-in-kind, thus being taxable.

In the main, yes. Shops can ban anyone they like, although they can't do it on the grounds of disability, race, sex etc.

They mostly do it after persistent theft.

Just doing it to people that you perceive to be awkward eg excercising their consumer rights would be commercial suicide though. Anyone who has had to deal with the public will know how exasperating they can be, but professional businesses will always deal with this appropriately.
