Buying a business in Edinburgh
Whether you're looking for a small scale leasehold retail opportunity or a larger freehold premises suitable for a hotel or guest house, you'll find hundreds of Edinburgh businesses for sale on Daltons Business - the UK's largest business for sale marketplace.
Edinburgh is one of the UK's premier tourist destinations, home to regular annual events such as the Edinburgh Fringe, Hogmanay, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and lesser-known events such as the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. These events, combined with the appeal of year-round attractions such as Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town, make Edinburgh an ideal choice for those looking to run a guest house or tourism-related business.
Edinburgh also has a thriving financial and services sector, and many services businesses make their home here. Virgin Money and RBS are headquartered in Edinburgh, and the Edinburgh Park business district, just outside the city, plays host to many blue chip firms.
Depending on the type of business you plan on buying, you may need a licence to trade - further advice on the legalities of buying a business in Edinburgh can be found on the Edinburgh city council website.
