Purchasing an existing business

Some North Carolina entrepreneurs may want to consider purchasing an existing business. This can be an ideal option for people who don't have a good idea for a new business or simply don't want to create a business from scratch. However, there are certain factors they should carefully consider before purchasing an existing business.

What to do when no one wants to buy a company

As small business owners get closer to retirement, they may want to sell their businesses to other parties. However, not every company available in North Carolina will find a buyer. Of course, there is a chance that a company could be acquired even if no one wants to buy it outright. For instance, a competitor may want to merge with a company or acquire a portion of it.

Tips for buying a business in an expedited fashion

It can sometimes take at least a year to buy a North Carolina business, but there are steps that can be taken to shorten that timeline. In fact, it may be possible to do so within the next several months with the right plan in place. One way to expedite the process is to only express interest in companies that meet budget and location requirements.

Things to consider before becoming a franchisee

Opening a new business in North Carolina as a franchisee can be a lucrative endeavor, but it's important to consider a variety of risk factors before moving forward with an investment. One of the first factors to analyze is whether or not a business opportunity is in an established or relatively new market. Old markets aren't 100 percent safe, and new ones aren't always fads, but how established a particular business is should weigh heavily in calculating the risk.

What to consider before selling a business

For business owners in North Carolina who are looking to exit their companies, 2019 could be an ideal time to do so. However, this doesn't mean that they should sell without first thinking through the sale process. For instance, it is important to understand how market conditions could impact what a buyer is willing to pay. The economy is expected to slow going into 2020 and 2021.

What to know about business transactions in the new year

North Carolina business owners are likely aware of the implications associated with a judgment either for or against their companies. For instance, if a company is being sold, a judgment that is waiting to be collected could be an asset. For someone looking to buy a business, a judgment against that entity could be a liability to consider during the due diligence process.

Steps to making a business sale easier

An individual who owns a business operating in Pennsylvania may want to sell their company at some point in the future. In fact, this is one of the ways in which older generations will pass wealth to their children and grandchildren. As a general rule, it takes about three to five years to successfully prepare, market and sell a business to the right buyer.

Tips for preparing a business to be sold

Business owners in North Carolina and throughout the country may feel as if they are ready to sell their companies. However, it doesn't mean that the business is ready to be put on the market. One of the most important parts of selling a company is making sure that is accurately represented to buyers. This means ensuring that all records are accurate and organized. Financial records should be put together using accepted accounting methods.

Succession plans for businesses

North Carolina residents who own their own business can take steps to ensure that they have an effective succession plan for their business. There are various options they can pursue to transfer control of the business, such as establishing employee stock ownership plans or selling ownership of the business to family members, key employee or an outsider.
