Turnover has steadily increased over the past three years and we are advised that accounts declare takings of circa £305,424 (incl. Vat @ 20%) in the year ending April 2011. This has been achieved on trading only five days per week with a trade split of 60% food and 40% wet.
The current owners wish to sell the business due to family and other business commitments and hence only one of the owner’s works in the business. New owners who both were able to work full time in the business could achieve significant wage savings.
We calculate the reconstituted profits for 2011 to be in excess of £60,000 (after adding back potential wage savings and depreciation).
