Buying a Business

Are you thinking of buying a business that is already established? Firstly, you need to carefully look at the pros and cons. Pros include a good history with customers, whereas cons can be things such as a bad perception of the business by the public or being charged a high price for goodwill that simply isn’t there.

When looking into buying a business you should:

  • Make sure the business suits your personal knowledge and skill level
  • Know the reasons for sale
  • Make sure there is evidence of steady work flow
  • Know who your competitors will be
  • Check out if they have any WorkCover claims against them – past or present
  • Get assistance from accountants and lawyers

You also get to know about the actual operations of the business, this includes:

  • Profits
  • Sales
  • Costs
  • Assets
  • Liabilities
  • Staff
