Hi folks, just mulling things over about the day I can retire, and live the good life (even more than now!) in the sunny Dordogne. So, whats my business worth? Proper co, paying VAT, and paying into the French system. We (wife unpaid) work from Mid - End March through to November. November to March hibernation! We have been growing the business from nowt to 130kpa t/o in 13 years, (goes up every year :) ) we have a mix of domestic and commercial customers. We have 30 odd pool contracts (weekly visits after opening) and we have 14 cleaners and 5 gardeners all self employed working with/for us.We sub out or pass on trees, hedges etc. and some days are 1/2 days during the summer and some are 12 hr days (few and far between though!) We always try and have 1/2 day for fishing / hossying and wifey has 1 day admin a week. we work Saturdays (busiest day with change overs etc) and Sundays pool day. Probably 40 or 50k of equipment.(value on books) Looking to sell probably 3-5 years,
Sooo, whats it worth at a guess?
