I recently attended the Australian Institute of Business Brokers National Conference on the Gold Coast.
And some interesting statistics came out of it regarding the Australian and New Zealand business profile:
1. There are approx. 10,000 large businesses with 200+ employees
2. 100,000 medium businesses with 10-200 employees
3. 1.4m small businesses with 1-10 employees
4. 1m small businesses with no employees
Of the 100,000 medium sized businesses, around 10,000 (or 10%) are in play at any one time.
In what category does your business sit ?
