Gunnink & Company Business Brokers

New financial year 2017

What a positive difference the last two months have been in the business broking industry!

Here at Gunnink & Co., we’ve noticed a three-fold increase in telephone inquiries and a five-fold increase in email inquiries. This compared to six months ago, is very encouraging business activity in Western Australia.

Having account figures ready and available for a purchaser provides speedier transactions and fosters good business relationship building.

This financial year is shaping up to be a strong year of business transacting on the back of some sluggish previous years. Business Insider is reporting that the Jobs report has “smashed expectations”, and that in the past three months we’ve seen the fastest pace of hiring since November 2004.

According to the ABS, employment jumped by 42,000 in seasonally adjusted terms, easily surpassing expectations for an increase of 10,000.

Additionally, NFIB is reporting that job openings and plans to create new jobs lead to increases in the small business optimism index by 1.6% to 105.2.

Here’s to a bright 2017 financial year!
