Are you considering selling your business?
Selling a business can be a long, tedious, and stressful
process. Hiring an experienced business broker has
huge benefits, as they can help guide you through the
complicated process of selling your business. Utilising
the services of an experienced, professional business
broker allows the owner to focus on running the
business reducing the risk of business erosion during the
The benefits of using West Australian Business Brokers to sell your business
Confidentiality. If an owner tries to sell his own
business, that process alone reveals to the world
that his business is for sale. Employees, customers,
suppliers, and bankers all get nervous and
competitors get predatory. West Australian Business
Brokers will protect the identity of your business
and contact only owner approved buyers. For the
buyer to gain access to any sensitive information he
or she must sign a confidentiality agreement. That
generally eliminates the time wasters and deters
behaviours detrimental to the sellers.
Selling a business is a full-time
job. The business owner is already performing
multiple functions instrumental to the success of his
business. By taking on the load of selling his
business, many of those essential functions will get
less attention, sometimes causing irreparable
damage to the business. The owner must maintain
focus on running his business at its full potential
while it is being sold, and with West Australian
Business brokers, the owner can maintain a focus
on running the business whilst a broker is working
on the sale.
No upfront fees.
Unlike most business brokers,
West Australian Business Brokers do not charge up
front fees. These fees can range from $2,000 to
$15,000. We work on a success fee, so no sale….no
fee or commission.

Valuing your Business.
Putting a value on a business is far more difficult and complex than valuing a house. Every business is different, with hundreds of variables that have an impact on the value. An industry database may indicate the value of your business based on certain valuation
multiples, but the market provides the real answer.
An industry database, for example, cannot put a
value to a buyer on a key customer relationship or a
Most corporate buyers have
acquired multiple businesses while sellers
usually have only one sale. We can level the
playing field for a business owner making his
one and only business sale.
Closing a Deal.
Since our sole function is to
sell the business, there’s a much better
chance that a deal will be closed in less time.
The faster the sale, the lower the risk of
employee problems, customer defection and
Maintain Buyer Seller Relationship.
The sale of a business is an emotional process and can become contentious. We act as a buffer between the buyer and seller. This not only improves the likelihood of the transaction closing but helps preserve a healthy buyer / seller relationship post-closing. Sometimes buyers want sellers to have a portion of their transaction value contingent on the successful performance of the company post-closing. Buyer and seller need to be on the same team after closing.
