Buying a Business - What you need to know

Wed 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Facilitated by Maine SBDC
Topic: Managing a Business

Starting a business from scratch is one of the most rewarding – and difficult – challenges to undertake. It takes time, effort, and unconditional (and sometimes unrequited) love to grow a business. This is why many are considering purchasing an existing business with proven systems, policies, customers, and financial history. This webinar will teach the basics of buying a business, such as conducting “due diligence”- inspecting the financial records, contracts and business assets; determining the value of the business; preparing contracts and related purchase-and-sale documents; tax considerations; and knowing when to “walk away” from a deal.
