  • Credit History and Vendor Relationships: Leverage pre-existing credit and trusted partnerships with suppliers.
  • Skilled Workforce: Inherit a team of trained and proficient employees ready for seamless integration.

High Rewards, Low Risk: Why Buy a Business?

Purchasing an existing business offers you the chance to seize control of your own destiny with low risk and high rewards.

Did you know? There’s a greater than 95% chance that the business will still be operating after five years if you buy it right, compared to only a 35% success rate for starting a business from scratch.

Additionally, the ability to substantially enhance the value of a business and then sell it tax-free is a valuable addition to the regular income and dividends that ownership of a small business can provide.
