    I have a small business with only 8 accounts (have turned down more). I'm trying to decide if I should sell it or sub it out. Has anyone sub'd there business out? If so, did you sub the equipment also? I do not want to hire an employee. I would like to keep to tax break. Thanks for the help.

    Are you looking to get out of the business or just take some time off and get back into it at the begining of next season?

    If you're just looking for some time off then just sub the work out.

    This all depends on what your 8 accounts are. Are they big places that require a lot of attention to detail or are they small 20 minute jobs. More info is needed- do you have another job? Do you have any problems with these customers, etc...

    One is a 3 acre place the others are 20-30 minute jobs. I think I am going to try to sell the business (equipment).
