by Nathan Winch

Does my business need premises? It’s a question people ask me all the time. When should I get office space? When is the right time to move into office space? In my opinion, office space is a big step. As such a large, fixed overhead, you need to think about whether it’s appropriate to move […]

You’ve heard all about it no doubt. As a ‘budding entrepreneur’ as they say, you’ll have stumbled across various courses in many industries promising to ’10X’ or ‘explode’ your business overnight with ‘one easy trick’. I’m of course talking about the ‘get rich quick’ scene. But how do you really become wealthy? In today’s society […]

🏠 Going on the market in February! The next new build well on its way to completion. Just needs the windows coming on Tuesday then plastering and fit out. I know new builds have a bit of a reputation for being built too quickly, having flaws and unattended snags. And that reputation is correct with […]

Carbon Credits – What are they? Global warming is boring, isn’t it? We’re constantly seeing new updates on the news, but does it really affect us? Between the arguments of “I’ll be gone before it’s a problem” and “It’s down to the big companies to sort”, it’s hard to find a reason to care. Well, […]

Inflation surged this week, pushing the cost of living up by 5.1% in the last 12 months to November 2021, a rise from 4.2% in the previous month and at its highest since 2011. In our transport business we have noticed a steep rise in fuel costs, which has meant we have had to raise […]

Why changing to electric vehicles is good for business and the environment I get it, you’re a busy person. Far too busy to be standing next to a charging station for an hour before you can hit the road again. That’s exactly how I felt until I bought my first electric car but, as this […]

FINALLY COMPLETED THE BIG ONE! This week has been bloody torture. But we have finally completed on the purchase of Eclipse Distribution, a big haulage and logistics firm in Loughborough. In the same week we completed on Browns Garden Buildings! Even our solicitor has never had a client buy two companies in one week. But […]

We’ve just completed on the acquisition of Browns Garden Buildings, a company that manufactures prefab buildings, garages, extensions and garden rooms.

THE BUSINESS OWNER’S WALLPAPER  It’s easy to get sucked into the way you do things as a business owner. It’s the age old “we’ve always done it this way” mantra. Often, when we acquire a company at Winch & Co, we immediately see areas for improvement. Not because the vendor has been running the business inefficiently, […]

by Nathan Winch

What are management accounts? Management accounts are a type of financial report providing insight on the financial performance of your business. They’re called management accounts because business owners and management teams typically use them for strategic decision-making. Each set of management accounts will be unique to that business and financial period, showing items such as […]

I was walking round Leeds today and noticed some car parks run by JustPark, the UK’s favourite parking app – a company I invested in quite some time ago now. They have gone from strength to strength. For all the risks you take as a private equity investor, you don’t need many to take off […]

The right time to bring people into my business Property is a business just like any other but, in my experience, property people tend not to act like business owners. It’s strange. It’s a phenomenon I’ve only witnessed in property; maybe because many of them aren’t business owners first – not that that is a […]
