Why is my enterprise making any money?

I'm on Little Upsilon and have had my Enterprise for a bit more than one game year and all of my corps (I think I have 12 or 13) are making a loss every single month. I have my trade strategies set at selling for 250% of market price and buying for 92% of market price. All of my stuff sells and everything, but I'm making no money.

What can I do to fix this. My corporation with the highest salaries is only at 250. and (almost) all of them are at 100% hiring (the ones that aren't I'm raising salaries)

Edit: my title was a typo-- supposed to say why ISN'T my enterprise making any money

They usually won't profit until you've been purchasing quality upgrades for a few years. I'm not sure if effectivity upgrades have a significant impact on profit.

It helps to build in countries with low tax and high welfare, and profits increase when demand is high or supply is low.

I'd say between 5 to 10 game years is the average time it takes for my corps to begin turning a profit, with purchasing of quality/effectivity upgrades set on automatic.

Thanks it really irritating because my enterprise is losing money and going into debt and I just have to sit here and watch essentially :(

I played a couple years ago and I'm pretty sure that didn't happen... unless I'm remembering wrong

Is there any slight thing I can do to turn a profit earlier than 5-10 years?

if you look at other peoples countries and ceos, profits seem to be way down compared to a few years ago.
