Transcript: An initial checklist for buying a small business

If you’re thinking of buying a small business, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Does it match your skills, experience, and industry knowledge?
  2. Is it the right size and in your ideal location?
  3. What advisors will you work with?
  4. Can you determine a purchase price for the small business based on cash flow, financial projections, assets, or expected return on investment?
  5. Have you considered how you will pay the purchase price for your acquisition?

If you have solid answers to these questions, then you’re likely ready to take the next steps in the purchasing process.
