Small business owners position:

In present days, small business is becoming a big hazard. Especially General stores, Fancy Stores, Mobile Shops, Vegitable shops and Medical shops etc.

Basic reason is..., House owners are increasing RENT equivalent to their average monthly income. 20 days of their business income is going to rent and maintenance charges.

By any reason if they are not able to open remaining 5 days, they will not get anything for their survival. This is the position of 90% business owners keeping in rental premises.

Suggestion is, if you have OWN Premises then it is OK, Otherwise long-lease for at-least 5 years will give you some relaxation. If you want to close the same meanwhile It is better to endorse to some other for certain money.

Wishing you all the best,
