New to business

If you are new to business, you are probably a little cautious and concerned as to whether buying a business is the right idea. If you love what you do and you want to do it for yourself this section of our site is dedicated to bringing you cheap businesses for sale, so why not?

Being in business can be tough but very rewarding at the same time.

Top five tips to consider when buying a business for the first time:

  1. Businesses at this end of the market are more than likely going to be leasehold and the landlord will want to see references so previous experience in the type of business you are looking to buy would be ideal.

  2. At the entry end of the market, be prepared to put in the work yourself, you’ll need to be hands on and want to get stuck in! It is unusual to find a valid investment opportunity at this end of the market.

  3. Can you afford to buy? Don’t forget, you are likely to need money for Stock, Legal fees etc. on top of the purchase price. Add a contingency into that too for any unexpected costs!

  4. Ask if the seller is willing to stay on for a period of time after you buy the business to introduce you to the customers and show you how they do things.

  5. Be aware that to properly transfer a business can take some time, especially if it’s done through a firm of solicitors; as it should be. On average, the legal process can take two to three months, so bear that in mind.

Buying vs. Starting – Three reasons why you should buy a business

With so many cheap businesses for sale, why wouldn’t you buy instead of starting from scratch?

  1. Somebody else has made all the mistakes for you. When you start a business, as with buying an existing one to some extent; it’s one big learning curve! When you buy an existing business, you already have a customer base, maybe established staff and the processes are already in place, so the impact of learning about being in business can be less severe.

  2. People already know about the business so you don’t have to start from scratch building a customer base. You can focus your efforts on adding to that customer base and growing an already established business.

  3. You don’t need to come up with a name, logo or brand straight away; it will already be there; in time, you could add your own touch to it or change it all together…the choice is yours.

From little acorns grow mighty oaks

Turning a hobby into a career? Whether it’s baking cakes or tying bouquets, lots of people just like you turn their hobbies into a business.

Many people have made huge successes out of their desire to turn a hobby into a career, such as Nicole Snow who started Darn Good Yarn, and Christine Watanabe turned her passion for tennis into a business.

What though is the difference between making a bit of money on the side and going full force into business with your hobby?

Will you enjoy it just as much when you’re working to pay the bills?

Running a business as a hobby is great, you can pick and choose which friends birthday cakes you do or which relatives flowers you tie, but when you do your hobby for a living, you can’t be so choosy. You will need to love what you do enough to do it whenever and for whoever, so you can pay your bills and make some money

Do you understand business?

You don’t need a degree or qualification, but are you confident in the basics? It can be a scary thought if you don’t understand the absolute basics of finances, book keeping, employment law etc. If you aren’t fully up to speed on the basics, don’t worry; there are lots of places to get good free advice, but don’t leave it until you’ve bought the business to take those first steps into the unknown!

Can you afford to buy a business?

Remember, buying a business is only the starting point. You’ll have stock and fees to pay on top of the asking price in most cases, so please don’t forget that. Also, make sure you have enough spare cash to fund your initial cash flow when you eventually do take the keys to your new shop. The last thing you want to do is run out of money!
