Australia is a country built upon small business and these foundations only seem to be strengthening. June 2016 figures from the Australian Business Register saw an increase of 27,000 net micro businesses since the same time in 2014, and an increase of 32,000 sole-trader businesses in the same period. Small business continues to drive the growth of the economy and with that there has been a rising demand from potential business owners for clear access to business listings.
Partnering with the Australian Institute of Business Brokers (AIBB), business listings website businessesview.com.au is one of Australia’s largest portals of its kind and, through this partnership, now has more listed businesses for sale.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes, whether sole, micro, medium or larger, list with businessesview.com.au and because of the website’s partnership with the AIBB any interaction you have as a potential business owner is secured in the professional transition a business broker offers both parties.
So, why not just buy a business on your own?
Buying a business is not an easy task, as there are many considerations to make during the process. For instance, what is the value of the business in relation to not only its assets but its intellectual property, its brand, its customer base and potential customer base, or its good will? What will happen to staff when you buy and how will these considerations be incorporated into the negotiations? A business broker has the experience and knowledge to help you during this process so that you can use every tool on your belt to leverage negotiations with a vendor.
Just as a potential business owner may want the help of a business broker, so too do vendors. Someone selling their business has the right to try to get the best price for a business they have spent so much of their time building. Using a business broker is obviously an attractive way for vendors to feel assured they are following the right steps when selling. For this reason, more business owners list their businesses with sites such as businessesview.com.au because of this extra level of help.
A business listings website also allows you to keep your fingers on the pulse of any area of business you are interested in. Browse through businesses depending on their location and industry so that you can identify trends and buy at the right time.
