    I would say you should advertise you round as a turnover of approx £2250 a month

    you work at your yearly takings then divide by 12
    for example 1880 x 6 /12
    1660 x 10 / 12
    and so on

    I've been asking similar question about price of rounds before.General feeling is possibly 3/4 x monthly monies for the round.You don't say how long you've had it or if your selling van/equipment.For the round only, 12k would be expensive, more like 6.5/7k !!

    yh i agree, 6.5k would be about right, how long has it been established, also you need to appreciate that the work is very dis-jointed time wise, some 6 weeks, some 8, some every few months, some knocks, which makes it difficult to service, especially if whoever is interested has work already they want to fit this around
