Business in 2011

Doing some planning for next year.

Do you think business volumes and prices will increase or decrease?

How will the rise in prices effect us (fuel, equipment labour )?

Will the Corporates emerge again?

Cant really answr the questions above howeve my approach is as follows....

- Work harder..
- Develop new income streams to suplement your usual ones..
- Don't give up..

Thats my approach.

i think there will be a bit reinventing going on, i've gambled on doing less new boats and more old boat refurb's and that paid off

I agree with Biffer people are spending more on their existing goodies cars, boats etc so accessories have been a good selling.

For 2011 we will be tying up with a service station in order to be able to offer in house servicing and equipment

Prices will undoubtedly rise due to VAT increase. It will have some effect on custom, how much who knows. Business wise, depends if you're vat registered. If international, reckon the pound will rise due to the inevitable rise in base rate. Bad if exporting, good if importing!

Good luck though!
