Vendor analysis

Over recent years it would appear that an increasing number of owners are holding assets in Limited companies. Reasons for this are many and varied, likely to be driven by taxation regimes, debt funding constraints and wealth preservation.

64% of sales in 2018 were from private, limited liability companies, an increase over the 56% 4YA. Not unexpectedly, receivership sales declined over the year to 2% of total sales (4YA – 11%). Whether this is a result of an improvement in debt and loan restructuring conditions is debateable, but there is clearly less activity at present for Receivers. Looking  to the future, this trend might not necessarily be long term.
