I haven't exactly been prolific in terms of posts to my blog, in fact, it's been over a year since i last posted which could easily povoke the odd complaint. Lets see if I can begin to rectify that with todays post.
It has been a particularly interesting year in the business sales market with the introduction of new regulations regarding EPC's and enough doom and gloom from the media regarding the prospects for British business to sink a battleship. That's not what we've seen here at Ernest Wilson, we have had an exceptionally strong year in terms of sales with more business having been sold this year by us than at any time in the last 3 years and the good news is that trend is continuing. If you would like to see a sample of recent sales, take a look at my Co-Director's blog here.
Switching the evening news on may have you believe that there is not much point in attempting to sell your business in the present climate, however, nothing could be further from the truth. During the last few months we have seen such strong sales that we are looking at new ways to generate new instructions to replenish our stock.
Whilst on the subject of new instructions, yesterday, I recently took instructions on a Karting Circuit for sale based in Yorkshire which offers masses of scope and would suit anyone with a passion for motorsport. This is a very profitable business but currently run by staff and in our opinion could prove substantially more profitable with a working owner. If you want to see all our latest instructions you could always keep an eye on my twitter page.
