Business description

Outstanding Online Established Business for Sale.

The business originally set up 18 months ago and changed its name (but not its business model or business contracts, SLA,s) in its current name it has been trading since September 2017 and has traded in off peak months and made on average 2k per month. We anticipate months March to August to be peak business months and make up 80% of business turnover.

Reason for sale; due to work and family commitments I am unable to invest the time needed to make this business a success that it is set up to be.
We have 1 established customer who is one of the largest companies in the Uk and Worldwide. We have SLA’s set up to provide references and DBS checks. We have set up a website with a built-in log in system in line with DBS requirements (we were first company in UK to complete the transition from Disclosure Scotland to the current DBS set up in England and Wales), this is a system you can not purchase or build this is bespoke and is set up alongside DBS. We have a bespoke reference and DBS database. This database is a streamline process that saves hours in time in processing reference requests. Not only this but it gives the client admin rights and provides a perfect live business snapshot. The cost of website, DBS system and bespoke database is more than 12k.

The beauty of this business is that everything is done online so you can work at anytime of the day or night and this won’t affect your productivity as we can work 24/7.

The client has approximately 2500 new starters each yeah who require reference and dbs checks as well as 5000 staff who each 5 years require a DBS renewal check. With a strong approach to business I would anticipate peak months combined to earn 60-80k per year off peak to earn 20k per year.
At present the client has 2 preferred suppliers ourselves and one other. (Please note they have the option to do this in house if they decide to do so).
The potential for staff is down to your workload, so far I have managed the business by myself and if I needed a holiday I trained my father to take over (training took a couple of hours).

The business has huge scope for scope, as mentioned it is one of the only companies in the UK that can provide DBS checks and has an established bespoke reference checking system which is very impressive for clients because you can give them access to this and that is a huge selling point.

- What’s included in the sale:
-The website - including DBS log in system
- Bespoke database
- SLA agreements
- Valuable contacts to decision makers within the company we deal with.
- Business Bank Account

I will also be happy to make introductions and give a handover, so you are confident in being able to complete the work and build the business.
The business has no overheads and server and website costs are paid for the rest of the year.
For me the main reason anyone would want to take over this business is the flexibility to work from home or office, work your own days and hours, be in control of your business destiny. You also have a unique product that very few businesses have with the DBS registered organisation and having a bespoke system is a huge selling point. The spoke for expansion is huge and depends on your drive and hours you wish to work.
