Thinking of buying an assignment or assignment of business goodwill in the licensed trade?
Always use specialist licensed trade accountants – running a business in this industry is a unique business and demands accountants with unique skills and experiences. We’ve been helping the people in the licensed trade for years.
Find out the history of the business – does it come with a good reputation, or one that will need turning around?
Do your financial homework – always obtain recent accounts from the seller and barrelage figures from the brewery.
Remember to ask about rates – it sounds amazing, but many prospective licensees forget. But with some rates being up to £1,000 a week, it’s something you really need to think about.
Make sure a qualified person completes your survey – if there are faults, you need to be able to negotiate with the brewery or pub company to get them fixed, or to reduce the selling price.
