The Business

Covid-19 Disease - Guy Simmonds Policy/Strategy

We are all facing an unprecedented situation, in view of the deadly World-Wide pandemic and Covid19 disease, which will potentially affect millions.

Naturally, our absolute priority is to endeavour to keep ourselves and everyone else, including our staff, families and clients - safe and well, in accordance with new and evolving Government legislation.

Obviously licensed outlets/businesses in line with Government stipulations are presently closed and our beleaguered hard-working publicans and valued vendor clients will continue to follow evolving Government stipulations.

At Guy Simmonds, during this difficult and unprecedented time, we will continue as always to market our vendor clients' businesses and on-line.

For those purchasers who are already in the process of buying/leasing, we continue to use our best endeavours to help you complete the purchase of your chosen business.

For those prospective purchasers who initially view a business on our own website or our associated websites, and who wish to proceed further we will be pleased to continue to answer your queries at first by email.

Should you require a personal viewing, after you have studied the on-line sales particulars, you should email your request to us at We will then respond requesting further details including your financial ability to proceed etc before contacting our vendor client to take their instructions as to whether they wish to accommodate a viewing - which is entirely at their discretion. All viewings should be conducted as per the latest/updated Government Guidelines in particular (but not limited to) - note Section 2 headed 'Viewings' - see link

To all our vendor clients and prospective purchasers, we assure you that our staff will continue to attempt to answer your queries. To help us all, we would request that initially you direct any queries by email to We will be monitoring our emails and will reply as quickly as we can.

Please note any references to current turnover/profits on sales particulars will of course not apply nor be relevant, due to businesses being closed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

May I take this opportunity to wish all our clients, friends and everyone a safe and healthy outcome to this deadly virus and pandemic and implore everyone to follow ever changing Government legislation.

Stay safe and healthy.

Best wishes.

Stephen Taylor

Managing Director
