Some small business owners do not want to bother opening a new business and therefore prefer to buy an existing one. The main reason for this 'reluctance' is that the creation of the company must spend a lot of time and effort necessary to determine not only its objectives but also to find clients, prepare the room, make a marketing plan, employees choose to register as a legal entity. Buying a company must also have an action plan, but it certainly will not be burdened by such trifles, as they will be solved. Plays an important role as the complexity of the chosen industry. If the enterprise is rather complicated in operation and has many features of its activities, its so much better to buy than to build. Build a business in which you are not sufficiently well versed not only risky, but stupid. In the purchase of ready business is also their nuances. If an enterprise has survived in the market for several years, the risk of bankruptcy is much less. After reviewing financial statements for the past few years, you will be able to make more accurate forecasts than solely on the basis of their own assumptions. In addition, you must carefully check all the documents related to the activities of the selected company. Do not take the information provided in confidence, because some owners to sell your business, tend to gloss over the reality. Some entrepreneurs do not see the potential for the growth of your company or simply do not want this potential to develop. The reason for this can be satisfied current income, lack of necessary skills, fatigue or simply a desire to retire. Find companies that have opportunities for growth, it is difficult, but possible if you have the patience and time. But do not overpay just because you see in the company for growth and are looking with interest to recover their investments. If you're wrong, this will only increase your loss. Insist on that value, which will display state enterprises at the time of purchase. Another advantage of buying an already existing business is that in some areas of the business market is saturated enough to get on it can only be acquired already operating companies. And buying a company, you get not only his assets, but also a ready market, so you will not have to look for clients. Although, in the purchase of ready business has its drawbacks. For example, difficult staff (which is quite possible to solve), a small profit margin, a bad reputation in the market (although this can be learned in advance). So all carefully analyze previously, so that later you can feel at height.
