Step 3
Finding The Right Business

To identify a lucrative opportunity, you need to begin to understand the processes and if the business is right for you. The task of enquiring about the business, its details and checking the relevant documentation is undertaken by our skilled business brokers.

Business Appraisal

Once you confirm your interest in the business, you need to understand its true market value. To determine the earning capacity of a business, you need to evaluate its ROI with the help of the business broker. It requires assessing the financials, annual turnover, net profits, assets and much more.

 
Step 4
 
Step 5
Making An Offer

You must be aware of the asking price, most buyers have a lower price in mind. Most sellers are prepared to negotiate on price but within reason. Ideally the offer should be presented to the Seller in writing with details of payment dates and other special conditions

The Round of Negotiations

Our business brokers understand your needs and your limitations in terms of budget and possibly obtaining finance, they also know the constraints of the seller and equipped to negotiate the best price for all concerned.

 
Step 6
 
Step 7
Obtaining Finance

Don’t just start the process on your own; consult your financial advisor and our business brokers to assist in sourcing finance.

The Purchase Agreement

You must review the purchase agreement prepared by the Broker with the assistance of a lawyer. Check the final price mentioned in the agreement and the settlement document. Assess all the other data such as contracts, leases, and licenses. After satisfaction, finalize the deal and close the sale.

 
Step 8
 
Step 9
Post-Closing Process

The broker will assist you in the post-closing process wherein all the business items that are required to assume operations are handed over to the new owner. The outgoing owner needs to inform all the vendors, employees and contract holders about the new owner and cease all operations as the owner of the entity.

Begin Your Entrepreneurial Journey

Once all the formalities are over, you become the owner of the business and assume its operations. The settling in phase can take some time but eventually, you will get the flow and can start working towards building a successful business guided by the plans and strategies formulated by the outgoing owner.

 
Step 10
Become a successful business owner with the acquisition of a thriving franchise or business for sale at any of the prime locations in Australia.

Ken Spencer

Buyer of an Auto Repair Business

We were getting old and wanted to enjoy our retired life away from the noise of the trading community. This is when we decided to hire business brokers in Australia for selling our business. Bill and Susan from Smart Business Sales were quick to get on our case and lent their undivided attention and support. They helped in showcasing our business in the best possible manner to the potential buyers. We started getting enquiries in a matter of weeks and were advised on picking a qualified and willing buyer. They facilitated the deal and we were fully satisfied with the end results. Thanks to your team, we are making the most of our retired life.

They identified the best business for me keeping in mind my industry experience and needs. They worked with me every day to go through the appraisal process and gave me a detailed report of everything. They carried out the negotiations smoothly, and in just two months I became the proud owner of my own business. I wish to thank your remarkable and brilliant team of brokers who stood by my side throughout the process.
