Before You Buy a Business…Checklist, be prepared before you buy a business

  • Get help from a good business broker who understands your needs and what you’re looking for
  • Do some research on the industry you’re considering and get an idea of its future trajectory
  • If you already own a business, figure out how to incorporate the new business and its employees into your current company
  • Dig into the business’ reputation and uncover any hurdles to tackle and address
  • Does the business need a turnaround?
  • Why is the company for sale? Don’t assume, it’s your job to ask the tough questions so you can uncover problems now rather than later
  • Ask for all the business’s financials to go over with your accountant
  • Ask the seller if there are any legal issues that may hamper our ability to do business
