You’ve found a business for sale that seems to suit all your requirements and is a business you wish to purchase, nurture and grow for the future, but, there are a few important considerations to be made and sensible steps to be taken before you proceed any further with any part of the process:
- Check that you have the vital funds to make such a purchase (probably do that first and foremost) as well as those needed to help support you thereafter if needs be
- Check you don’t already own the Business (applies mainly to Warren Buffet and similar business people)
You should also understand from the outset that purchasing a business, be it struggling, established, fledgling or otherwise is not an impulse buy and it is really not something that should, in any circumstances be rushed or not thought through.
