Contract of Sale, Section 52 and Business Valuations documents are important - legal documents that commonly form part of the business purchase process.

A team of experts is needed to help you with the purchase, including:

  • A lawyer,
  • An accountant and possibly,
  • A business broker.

This team will help negotiate the purchase price and terms, as well as conduct due diligence on the business. Once an agreement is reached on the purchase price and terms, the necessary financing may need to take place.

The next step is to reach out to the business owner and start negotiations. Once purchase terms are agreed, your team of professionals will help finalise the deal.

Assuris FIG business accountants can help you through the process.

When looking at business opportunities, buying a franchise can be a great option.

It is important to do research and understand what you're getting into before making any decisions.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering buying a franchise:

  • Make sure you understand the franchise model.
  • What are the franchisor's expectations and what are you responsible for?
  • Review the Franchise Disclosure Document carefully.
  • Consider the franchisor's level of support and training available.

An important consideration is the franchisor's track record. Make sure to look into the franchisor's history to see how successful they've been in the past.

Asking other franchisees about their experiences with the franchisor will provide better clarity.
