Buying a Business


If you're looking to buy a business in Australia it is easier than you think. Bsale is a premier business for sale website with thousands of opportunities to buy a business. It's as simple as making an enquiry on a business that takes your interest. We have put together the steps to buying a business to help you in the process. It is important to seek professional advice from an independent party when buying a business so you have a full understanding of what you are purchasing.  


What are the steps in buying a business?



Step 1



It's important to have an understanding of your skills and what type of business you want to buy.


Step 2



Understand your buying power. How much money do you have to invest? There is the opportunity to gain a loan to purchase a business. This will normally rely on some type of collateral so you will need to have an understanding of your finances and what you have available to invest. Some businesses will offer vendor financing but its not a good idea to solely rely on this type of finance. 


Step 3



Start searching. There are thousands of opportunities. You can search via region, category, price or keywords. Narrowing down a good business buy can be time consuming. So it is a good idea to set up buyer alerts so you receive notifications when new businesses are listed. 


Step 4



Contact the seller of the business. Once you have begun communications they will normally require you to complete an NDA to protect the details of the business. This is to ensure they are only speaking with genuine enquirers. 


Step 5 


View the business. It is a good idea to arrange a time to meet the owner and view the business.  


Step 6






If you wish to proceed with buying the business. You should request to complete due diligence. This is the process of reviewing all the businesses details. It is a good idea to engage a professional business valuer during this process so you can be sure the business is priced accordingly. Some times the owners will request you to pay a deposit, which can be refunded if the due diligence doesn't meet your expectations. You can also continue to negotiate on the sale price and the terms that are placed in the contract.  


Step 7


Once the due diligence has been performed and you agree to purchase. You need to complete the contract of sale with the seller and ensure you seek legal assistance. 


Step 8  


Settlement. This occurs once the payment has been paid and the business information, assets etc have been transferred to you. It is important you consult with a legal team during this process.  


Step 9 



Enjoy your new business!
