Process Of Buying A Business - First Time Buyers: What You Need To Know

Q. What is the Due Diligence process, can you help me here?

A. Of course we can! A Due Diligence process is carried out by the buyer as a condition of the Agreement for Sale and Purchase in order to satisfy themselves that the information we have provided is a true representation of the business they are buying. This process can vary in timeframes according to the size and complexities of each business. It is generally conducted in conjunction with their accountant / financial advisors.

Q. Why don’t you advertise the business name and more thorough details?

A. Usually the vendor wants to keep his business out of general public knowledge that it is for sale, thus we have to insist on people signing a Confidentiality Agreement (CA) before we can release any information.

Q. I've already filled out a CA with BBB; why do I have to fill in another?

A. Here at BBB we pride ourselves on our ability to uphold the highest level of confidentiality to our vendors as the result of a confidentiality leak can be detrimental to a business sale. We are happy to provide as much information to you about each listing but a CA must be completed for each individual listing to ensure our vendors can have 100% confidence in us as their agent. To make this process easier, once you have registered on our site, submitting a CA for each business takes just a few clicks.
