    If you were fortunate enough to have between 10 and 15k to invest in your " business " what would you do with it ???

    Ive been looking around for different ideas but unsure ?
    I suppose I could buy a van for about 6k ish then employ a canvasser ?

    Build the business in other areas of the cleaning industry ?

    Get a purefreedom van mount :) and thats it... Cos no point in spending big if u havent got a big customer base,,, u can hace a fancy van etc but if u got a small riund with not much work then the 1st priority would be to get customers and tgen invest i could get a pure freedom van mount now if i want but not until im earning a mininum of 2k per month

    Not particularly sound advice H, if Gavs plan was to go for bigger commercial work he would need the equipment to do the job before he went to look for it otherwise how could he do the work he got with the promise that he could do it.

    Get the van & gear, buy a round or pay a canvasser, get some work done.

    Do you need to put it back into the business, is so what is the reason – tax, replacement of current equipment, expansion?

    Why not keep the money, that’s what you are working for? (Buy a Motorbike)

    Buy a small commercial unit, offset tax for the next several years and use it as a pension plan for when you retire.

    Nice problem to have. :)

    Probably stick it in the account and look at building it up to £15-20 k as its easier to save when there's something to build on
