An ongoing business relationship
PBS is interested in long term, fruitful business relationships. Helping you buy your business is one step. Growing that business, buying another one, investing in other businesses, knowing when to sell. These are the services we offer beyond getting you to your deed of purchase.
Lower your risk so you can maximise your return
Buying a business contains inherent risks. The primary one being the need to verify that you are getting what you pay for and that the vendor is not hiding crucial information from you. With so many years experience across all aspects of buying, selling, running and advising businesses there is no better way to insure your risk than to engage PBS’s Buying Advocacy service. PBS can carry out due diligence on any independent business you are considering purchasing, not listed on our site.
We CAN Answer concerns about all of the following
- Is this business suitable for me?
- Is it worth the price?
- What is the outlook for the business?
- Does it really make the profit that the vendor says it makes?
- Will I be able to run it?
These questions are pressing and you should not purchase a business unless you can confidently answer every single one. The problem is, your knowledge of the business and industry you are buying into, along with information available to you from the vendor may not be sufficient. This is where external, expert advice is essential. PBS is pleased to offer this service for due diligence research, advice and advocacy you can trust absolutely.
