• One of the biggest aspects of buying a business is the exchange of funds between the buyer and the seller. The most common form of payment for a company is cash, but there are other forms known as “consideration.” Consideration can be anything that a seller is willing to accept for compensation for the sale of their business. 


  • Some owners choose to sell because they feel as though they’ve taken the business as far as they can, and they need someone else to step in and advance the company. They might not be ready to retire, but they realize that they’re not able to run the same company anymore.


  • Not all companies will go up for sale with a clean slate. Sometimes sellers need to unload debt ridden or money-losing businesses. Working out the business financing for these businesses can prove to be more difficult than finding business financing for rising companies. However, that is not say that the task cannot be done.
