What is Business Broking? What is an Intermediary?

The process whereby you sell or buy a business through a third party is business broking and a person who is retained by the seller to sell the business is the intermediary or business broker. The broker will also act as an advisor to the buyer to facilitate the smooth transfer of a business from the seller to the buyer. As you would regard yourself as knowledgeable in your field of expertise and your business, likewise a professional business intermediary is knowledgeable in the transfer of businesses from a seller to a buyer and vice versa, this is what we do for a living.

When to Buy A Business?

To enjoy real wealth, freedom and to be able to afford all that life has to offer, you will need to be in business for yourself. It is widely recognized that you will not become wealthy working for a boss. Starting a business can be risky; the unknown is always very daunting. Buying an existing business allows you the luxury of taking over a track record, most if not all the bumps are smoothed out and you can look forward to working on your business and growing it. In this day and age of retrenchments, right sizing, downsizing, company closures and mergers and acquisitions, you are never sure where you stand. Take uncertainty out of play by getting into business for yourself.

Selling A Business

Selling a business can be an extremely trying experience.

Consider This

When a doctor falls ill, he does not diagnose himself, he seeks advice from a fellow doctor?

When you consider selling your business, as tempting as it is to take it on yourself, you will be well advised to seek advice from a colleague whose business it is to sell businesses, your business. Your accountant and your attorney are just that, financial advisors and legal advisors. If you have a toothache, do you see a doctor or do you see a dentist, your attorney and accountant are very important advisors during the sale process but they are not going to be able to give you the best advice on the sale of your business as selling businesses is not there core focus, ultimately you make the final decision.

On Selecting A Business Broker

The business brokerage you choose should understand your needs and requirements. They should be equipped to handle the sale of your business, with the appropriate knowledge of your industry and know who the industry players are. They need to be registered with the correct authorities and should have been established for a reasonable period of time.
