ZIPPYKERB can produce 35 meters of quality continuous concrete edging per hour with a minimum of preparation and no fuss or mess.

The Zippykerb is self propelled and only needs guiding, it will only move forward when there is mix in the hopper. This is a mother and son team, one of our best independant Zippy Kerb operators. Lorna is feeding the Machine while Paul guides it.

It is not ‘hard’ work as you are only working with coarse river sand and cement - mixed in a mixer then taken to the ZippyKerb in a wheelbarrow and shoveled into the hoper. The Zippykerb can easily do up to 30 meters per hour. .

Don’t pay many $1000’s of dollars for next to nothing!

Zippykerb Owners Agree: Zippykerb is far better value for money than our competitor Kwik Kerb®

Buying any business is an important decision Zippykerb is GENUINE value for money.

TO BE CLEAR:
We are NOT KwikKerb®

We do not want to be associated with
 Kwik Kerb® in any way .

We Began business in 1982 many years before Kwik Kerb®. Kwik Kerb® is charging what we consider to be ridiculous prices for their business opportunity.

You can save many $1,000’s on the asking price of a Kwik Kerb® Business with our Zippykerb Package and purchase a new or used mixer and trailer (or Ute)  locally.

You will find that Zippykerb offers REAL value for money as a proven full or part time business. We are the original inventors of the Zippykerb Continuous Concrete Edging. Zippykerb is a better deal than Kwik Kerb® in HUGE cost advantage, in the quality of the Zippykerb Machine, our training manuals, our lead generation web sites and our ongoing support from over 30 years’ experience.

The Market potential

There are thousands of potential clients for ZIPPYKERB Continuous Concrete Borders – in residential, commercial, industrial, government, council’s etc  ... wherever there are gardens and landscaping.

Zippykerb edging is available in many shapes, colours and designs.

Income Potential

There are NO royalties or ongoing fees of any kind - ZIPPYKERB is not a franchise - every cent you earn is yours.

 Income potential always depends on a number of things, such as whether you work full or part time on the business, location etc.

We can show you an example but Please Note, it is not an accurate projection to base your decision to purchase on, prices vary by region, job size, edging style etc.

Income Assumptions- based on a week.

  • That a team of 2 people, a senior person and junior helper does 3 plain concrete jobs and 3 coloured stamped jobs.
  • That each job averages 50 meters
  • That they sell the plain concrete jobs for $18.00 per meter and the coloured stamped for $25.00 per meter (average current Sydney prices).
  • That the average cost of the materials for the plain concrete job is around $2.50 per meter
  • And the cost of materials for the coloured stamped job is around $3.50 per meter
  • That a junior helper is paid $20.00 per hour (varies with age/ location).

In this week, the team does 150 meters of plain concrete edging and  150 meters of stamped coloured edging:

150 meters plain edging @ $18.00
$2,700
150 meters stamped edging @ $ 25.00

Gross income for the week
$6,450
Estimated Fixed Costs:

Profit remaining

Selling prices vary on the size of the job and style. And things happen - like flat tires and rain or forgetting something – all affecting income. .

The profit shown doesn’t include overheads such as vehicle running, office (most people work from home) advertising etc.

We suggest being very conservative and work out your ‘start-up’ projections on as little as 1 or 2 jobs per week.

Even on ONE job a week, ZIPPYKERB is still a very good business – especially as a part time income stream.

One job:        Say 50m of stamped coloured edging at $25 per metre

Selling price $1,250.       Materials $175.     Helper (say) $120.        Outlay $295 .   Leaving a net profit of around $955

One such job a week – over 12 months net’s around $49,000

The main benefits of ZIPPYKERB

  • An opportunity to be your own boss - either full or part time.
  • A product with high consumer acceptance that is becoming more popular every day
  • Exceptional profit margins, typically the materials cost of the finished edging is around 12% of the job price.
  • Most ZIPPYKERB business are home based with low overhead
  • There is a PROVEN “Blueprint” for success backed by our 27 years experience to help fast track your skills.

ZIPPYKERB Edging has high consumer acceptance.  

People buy continuous edging because the product represents genuine value for money.

As well as being functional, it looks good and helps make their property look good to themselves and others.

This combination of looking good to you &making you look good to othersis one of the most powerful internal buying motivators, making the selling of a value for money product much easier.

How much business is there?

In today’s economic climate, some of the best businesses to be in are home improvements / building / landscaping – everyone is into improvements and appearanceZIPPYKERB fits right in there. .

Think of how many companies there are in your area doing say rain gutters, roofing or glazing!

Look in the yellow pages at the number of glazing businesses there are, we just did and there must be hundreds in Sydney alone.

ZIPPYKERB ’s potential clients include:  home owners, apartments, commercial, industrial, government parks, clubs, council’s etc

In our experience, the absolute reality is that the market has not even been scratched, many homeowners, landscapers, builders, architects would see the product as a major benefit to their property or business, and most would only have a vague idea that it exists.

We know of one operator who worked exclusively with three landscape contractors and never needed to look for further work, indeed, when I was running a crew full time I got all of my business from four landscape contractors.

One of our favourite sayings: 

“He who whispers down the well about the things he has to sell will never make as many dollars as he who climbs the tree and hollers”.

Success is the result  of planning and effort.  

Nothing can compete with getting out and showing / talking / exposing others to what you have to offer.

ZIPPYKERB is a proven  win / win business opportunity:

  If there is potential for business between us it will be because we exchange value.

In your case a financial investment where we make a fair profit - while we provide you with value in a business package that it is relatively low risk with the potential to provide generous immediate and long-term income.

ZIPPYKERB is one of the Noble May group of companies:

 Since developing ZIPPYKERB in 1982 we have gone on to develop a number of very successful local and international businesses:

  • One of the world’s most successful training and consulting organisations with many 100’s of clients worldwide, including many of the world’s largest companies in the USA, Asia, Europe  and Australia  
    www.noblemay.com.au         
  • Australia’s largest online business directory and instant “Website Tonight web site builders.
    www.hellococky.com.au

    www.allpage1.com
  • Past owners of one of Australia’s largest building materials manufacturers and building companies with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville, Newcastle, Orange, Griffith, Wagga Wagga (Now sold).

The experience and success we have to pass on in all aspects of Business, Training and the Internet is a major positive to consider becoming aZIPPYKERB owner.

Looking forward to conversation

Do I need aSolicitor?

It may be advisable to have aSolicitor review the legal documents. It is important, however, that the Solicitor you hire is familiar with the business buying process and has the time available to handle the paperwork on a timely basis. If the Solicitor does not have experience in handling business sales, you may be paying for the Solicitor’s education. Most business brokers have lists of Solicitors who are familiar with the business buying process. An experienced Solicitor can be of real assistance in making sure that all of the details are handled properly. Business brokers are not qualified to give legal advice. However, keep in mind the fact that many Solicitors are not qualified to give business advice. Your Solicitor will be, and should be, looking after your interests; however, you need to remember that the seller’s interests must also be considered. If the Solicitor goes too far in trying to protect your interests, the seller’s Solicitor will instruct his or her client not to proceed. The transaction must be fair for all parties. The Solicitor works for you, and you must have a say in how everything is done. If you know someone who has owned their own business for a period of time, he or We may also be a valuable resource in answering your questions about how small business really works. You have to make the final decision that “leap of faith” between looking and actually being in business for yourself is a decision, that only you can make!

How are businesses priced?

Generally, at the outset, a prospective seller will ask the business broker what he or we thinks the business will sell for. The business broker usually explains that a review of the financial information will be necessary before a price or a range of prices can be suggested for the business. Most sellers have some idea about what they feel their business should sell for – and this is certainly taken into consideration. However, the business broker is familiar with market considerations and, by reviewing the financial records of the business, can make a recommendation of what he or We feels is what the market will dictate. A range is normally set with a low and high price. The more cash demanded by the seller, the lower the selling price; the smaller the cash requirements of the seller, the higher the price. Since most business sales are seller-financed, the down payment and terms of the sale are very important. In many cases, how the sale of the business is structured is more important than the actual selling price of the business. Too many buyers make the mistake of being overly-concerned about the full price when the terms of the sale can make the difference between success and failure. An oft-quoted anecdote may better illustrate this point: If you could buy a business that would provide you with more net profit than you thought possible even after subtracting the debt service to the seller, and you could purchase this business with a very small down payment, would you really care what the full price of the business was?

What does it take to be successful?

Certainly, you need adequate capital to buy the business and to make the improvements you want, along with maintaining some reserves in case things start off slowly. You need to be willing to work hard and, in many cases, to put in long hours. Unfortunately, many of today’s buyers are not willing to do what it takes to be successful in owning a business. A business owner has to, as they say, be the janitor, errand boy, employee, bookkeeper and “chief bottle waWer!” Too many people think they can buy a business and then just sit behind a desk and work on their business plans. Owners of small businesses must be “doers.”

What happens when I find a business I want to buy?

When you find a business, the business broker will be able to answer many of your questions immediately or will research them for you. Once you get your preliminary questions answered, the typical next step is for the broker to prepare an offer based on the price and terms you feel are appropriate. This offer will generally be subject to your approval of the actual books and records supporting the figures that have been supplied to you. The main purpose of the offer is to see if the seller is willing to accept the price and terms you offered. There isn’t much point in continuing if you and the seller can’t get together on price and terms. The offer is then presented to the seller who can approve it, reject it, or counter it with his or her own offer. You, obviously, have the decision of accepting the counter proposal from the seller or rejecting it and going on to consider other businesses. If you and the seller agree on the price and terms, the next step is for you to do your “due diligence.” The burden is on you – the buyer – no one else. You may choose to bring in other outside advisors or to do it on your own – the choice is yours. Once you have checked and approved those areas of concern, the closing documents can be prepared, and your purchase of the business can be successfully closed. You will now join many others who, like you, have chosen to become self-employed!

What is the real reason people go into business for themselves?

There have been many surveys taken in an attempt to answer this question. Most surveys reveal the same responses, in almost the same identical order of priority. Here are the results of a typical survey, listed in order of importance: to do my own thing, control my own destiny, don’t want to work for someone else, to better utilize my skills and abilities, to make money. It is interesting to note that money is not at the top of the list, but comes in fourth.

Small Business for Sale Coffs Harbour What should I look for?

Obviously, you want to consider only those businesses that you would feel comfortable owning and operating. “Pride of Ownership” is an important ingredient for success. You also want to consider only those businesses that you can afford with the cash you have available. In addition the business you buy must be able to supply you with enough income – after making payments on it – to pay your bills. However, you should look at a business with an eye toward what you can do with it – how you can improve it and make it more productive and profitable. There is an old adage advising that you shouldn’t buy a business unless you feel you can do better than the present owner. Everyone has seen examples of a business that needs improvement in order to thrive, and a new owner comes in and does just that. Conversely, there are also cases where a new owner takes over a very successful business and not soon after, it either closes or is sold. It all depends on you!

Why should I buy a business rather than start one?

An existing business has a track record. The failure rate in small business is largely in the start-up phase. The existing business has demonstrated that there is a need for that product or service in a particular locale. Financial records are available along with other information on the business. Most sellers will stay and train a new owner and most will also supply financing. Finding someone who will teach you the intricacies of running a business and who is also willing to finance the sale can make all the difference.

Why should I go to a Small Business for Sale Coffs Harbour business broker?

A professional business broker can be helpful in many ways. They can provide you with a selection of different and, in many cases, unique businesses, including many that you would not be able to find on your own. Approximately 90 percent of those who buy businesses end up with something completely different from the business that they first inquired about. Business brokers can offer you a wide variety of businesses to look at and consider. Business brokers are also an excellent source of information about small business and the business buying process. They are familiar with the market and can advise you about trends, pricing and what is happening locally. Your business broker will handle all of the details of the business sale and will do everything possible to guide you in the right direction, including, if necessary, consulting other professionals who may be able to assist you. Your local professional business broker is the best person to talk to about your business needs and requirements.

Every year, thousands of businesses are bought and sold Australia and around the world. Many entrepreneurs, business people, and investors have discovered the wide array of benefits and advantages in buying a business. As a business buyer, you will be able to compare the track records and future opportunities of many businesses for sale and choose the one which meets your criteria and needs. Your business broker will help you find business opportunities and analyse them so you are making the best decision possible for your goals.

Valuable Business Intelligence

When buying a business, you will have the opportunity to analyse the business’ operations, past history, its competition, its industry, and much more. You will be in the unique position of analysing the wealth of information before taking the leap and investing your time and finances in the business. This process is called Due Diligence.

Business Infrastructure

When buying an existing business, you will be purchasing the infrastructure along with the business, including equipment, furniture, fixtures, real estate (in some cases), existing customer base, suppliers, and much more. As the new business owner, you will have the opportunity to focus on taking the business to the next level rather than creating a brand new business with no infrastructure around you.

Price of Acquisition vs. Starting a New Business

In many cases, it is often more advantageous to buy an established, ongoing business instead of starting a new venture. When calculating the total costs of starting a new business versus buying an existing one, you may find that buying an established business is much more cost efficient and financially beneficial.

Negotiating the Price

As a prospective business buyer, you will need to compare the costs involved with starting a new business compared to buying an existing one. Thousands of business are sold and purchased every year for a wide range of reasons. In some cases, you will be able to negotiate a better selling price with the former business owner. Similar to buying and selling real estate, these types of opportunities can decrease your upfront costs to acquire the business.

Do I need aSolicitor?

It may be advisable to have aSolicitor review the legal documents. It is important, however, that the Solicitor you hire is familiar with the business buying process and has the time available to handle the paperwork on a timely basis. If the Solicitor does not have experience in handling business sales, you may be paying for the Solicitor’s education. Most business brokers have lists of Solicitors who are familiar with the business buying process. An experienced Solicitor can be of real assistance in making sure that all of the details are handled properly. Business brokers are not qualified to give legal advice. However, keep in mind the fact that many Solicitors are not qualified to give business advice. Your Solicitor will be, and should be, looking after your interests; however, you need to remember that the seller’s interests must also be considered. If the Solicitor goes too far in trying to protect your interests, the seller’s Solicitor will instruct his or her client not to proceed. The transaction must be fair for all parties. The Solicitor works for you, and you must have a say in how everything is done. If you know someone who has owned their own business for a period of time, he or We may also be a valuable resource in answering your questions about how small business really works. You have to make the final decision that “leap of faith” between looking and actually being in business for yourself is a decision, that only you can make!

How are businesses priced?

Generally, at the outset, a prospective seller will ask the business broker what he or we thinks the business will sell for. The business broker usually explains that a review of the financial information will be necessary before a price or a range of prices can be suggested for the business. Most sellers have some idea about what they feel their business should sell for – and this is certainly taken into consideration. However, the business broker is familiar with market considerations and, by reviewing the financial records of the business, can make a recommendation of what he or We feels is what the market will dictate. A range is normally set with a low and high price. The more cash demanded by the seller, the lower the selling price; the smaller the cash requirements of the seller, the higher the price. Since most business sales are seller-financed, the down payment and terms of the sale are very important. In many cases, how the sale of the business is structured is more important than the actual selling price of the business. Too many buyers make the mistake of being overly-concerned about the full price when the terms of the sale can make the difference between success and failure. An oft-quoted anecdote may better illustrate this point: If you could buy a business that would provide you with more net profit than you thought possible even after subtracting the debt service to the seller, and you could purchase this business with a very small down payment, would you really care what the full price of the business was?

What does it take to be successful?

Certainly, you need adequate capital to buy the business and to make the improvements you want, along with maintaining some reserves in case things start off slowly. You need to be willing to work hard and, in many cases, to put in long hours. Unfortunately, many of today’s buyers are not willing to do what it takes to be successful in owning a business. A business owner has to, as they say, be the janitor, errand boy, employee, bookkeeper and “chief bottle waWer!” Too many people think they can buy a business and then just sit behind a desk and work on their business plans. Owners of small businesses must be “doers.”

What happens when I find a business I want to buy?

When you find a business, the business broker will be able to answer many of your questions immediately or will research them for you. Once you get your preliminary questions answered, the typical next step is for the broker to prepare an offer based on the price and terms you feel are appropriate. This offer will generally be subject to your approval of the actual books and records supporting the figures that have been supplied to you. The main purpose of the offer is to see if the seller is willing to accept the price and terms you offered. There isn’t much point in continuing if you and the seller can’t get together on price and terms. The offer is then presented to the seller who can approve it, reject it, or counter it with his or her own offer. You, obviously, have the decision of accepting the counter proposal from the seller or rejecting it and going on to consider other businesses. If you and the seller agree on the price and terms, the next step is for you to do your “due diligence.” The burden is on you – the buyer – no one else. You may choose to bring in other outside advisors or to do it on your own – the choice is yours. Once you have checked and approved those areas of concern, the closing documents can be prepared, and your purchase of the business can be successfully closed. You will now join many others who, like you, have chosen to become self-employed!

What is the real reason people go into business for themselves?

There have been many surveys taken in an attempt to answer this question. Most surveys reveal the same responses, in almost the same identical order of priority. Here are the results of a typical survey, listed in order of importance: to do my own thing, control my own destiny, don’t want to work for someone else, to better utilize my skills and abilities, to make money. It is interesting to note that money is not at the top of the list, but comes in fourth.

Small Business for Sale Coffs Harbour What should I look for?

Obviously, you want to consider only those businesses that you would feel comfortable owning and operating. “Pride of Ownership” is an important ingredient for success. You also want to consider only those businesses that you can afford with the cash you have available. In addition the business you buy must be able to supply you with enough income – after making payments on it – to pay your bills. However, you should look at a business with an eye toward what you can do with it – how you can improve it and make it more productive and profitable. There is an old adage advising that you shouldn’t buy a business unless you feel you can do better than the present owner. Everyone has seen examples of a business that needs improvement in order to thrive, and a new owner comes in and does just that. Conversely, there are also cases where a new owner takes over a very successful business and not soon after, it either closes or is sold. It all depends on you!

Why should I buy a business rather than start one?

An existing business has a track record. The failure rate in small business is largely in the start-up phase. The existing business has demonstrated that there is a need for that product or service in a particular locale. Financial records are available along with other information on the business. Most sellers will stay and train a new owner and most will also supply financing. Finding someone who will teach you the intricacies of running a business and who is also willing to finance the sale can make all the difference.

Why should I go to a Small Business for Sale Coffs Harbour business broker?

A professional business broker can be helpful in many ways. They can provide you with a selection of different and, in many cases, unique businesses, including many that you would not be able to find on your own. Approximately 90 percent of those who buy businesses end up with something completely different from the business that they first inquired about. Business brokers can offer you a wide variety of businesses to look at and consider. Business brokers are also an excellent source of information about small business and the business buying process. They are familiar with the market and can advise you about trends, pricing and what is happening locally. Your business broker will handle all of the details of the business sale and will do everything possible to guide you in the right direction, including, if necessary, consulting other professionals who may be able to assist you. Your local professional business broker is the best person to talk to about your business needs and requirements.

You should know the status of inventory, what's on hand at present, and what was on hand at the end of the last fiscal year and the one preceding that. You should also have the inventory appraised. After all, this is a hard asset and you need to know what dollar value to assign it. Also, check the inventory for salability. How old is it? What is its quality? What condition is it in? Keep in mind that you don't have to accept the value of this inventory: it is subject to negotiation. If you feel it is not in line with what you would like to sell, or if it is not compatible with your tarReach All market, then by all means bring those points up in negotiations.

2. Furniture, fixtures, equipment and building. This includes all products, office equipment and assets of the  buying Reach All Buyers Sellers    . Reach All a list from the seller that includes the name and model number of each piece of equipment. Then determine its present condition, market value when purchased versus present market value, and whether the equipment was purchased or leased. Find out how much the seller has invested in leasehold improvements and maintenance in order to keep the facility in good condition. Determine what modifications you'll have to make to the building or layout in order for it to suit your needs.

3. Copies of all contracts and legal documents. Contracts would include all lease and purchase agreements, distribution agreements, subcontractor agreements, sales contracts, union contracts, employment agreements and any other instruments used to legally bind the  buying Reach All Buyers Sellers    . Also, evaluate all other legal documents such as fictitious  buying Reach All Buyers Sellers     name statements, articles of incorporation, registered trademarks, copyrights, patents, etc. If you're considering a  buying Reach All Buyers Sellers     with valuable intellectual property, have an attorney evaluate it. In the case of a real-estate lease, you need to find out if it is transferable, how long it runs, its terms, and if the landlord needs to give his or her permission for assignment of the lease.

4. Incorporation. If the company is a corporation, check to see what state it's registered in and whether it's operating as a foreign corporation within its own state.

5. Tax returns for the past five years. Many small  buying Reach All Buyers brokers     owners make use of the  buying Reach All Buyers brokers     for personal needs. They may buy products they personally use and charge them to the  buying Reach All Buyers brokers     or take vacations using company funds, go to trade shows with their spouses, etc. You have to use your analytical skills and those of your accountant, to determine what the actual financial net worth of the company is.

6. Financial statements for the past five years. Evaluate these statements, including all books and financial records, and compare them to their tax returns. This is especially important for determining the earning power of the  buying Reach All Buyers brokers    . The sales and operating ratios should be examined with the help of an accountant familiar with the type of  buying Reach All Buyers brokers     you are considering. The operating ratios should also be compared against industry ratios which  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  be found in annual reports produced by Robert Morris & Associates as well as Dun & Bradstreet.

7. Sales records. Although sales will be logged in the financial statements, you should also evaluate the monthly sales records for the past 36 months or more. Break sales down by product categories if several products are involved, as well as by cash and credit sales. This is a valuable indicator of current business activity and provides some understanding of cycles that the business may go through. Compare the industry norms of seasonal patterns with what you see in the business. Also, obtain the sales figures of the 10 largest accounts for the past 12 months. If the seller doesn't want to release his or her largest accounts by name, it's fine to assign them a code. You're only interested in the sales pattern.

8. Complete list of liabilities. Consult an independent attorney and accountant to examine the list of liabilities to determine potential costs and legal ramifications. Find out if the owner has used assets such as capital equipment or accounts receivable as collateral to secure short-term loans, if there are liens by creditors against assets, lawsuits, or other claims. Your accountant should also check for unrecorded liabilities such as employee benefit claims, out-of-court settlements being paid off, etc.

9. All accounts receivable. Break them down by 30 days, 60 days, 90 days and beyond. Checking the age of receivables is important because the longer the period they are outstanding, the lower the value of the account. You should also make a list of the top 10 accounts and check their creditworthiness. If the clientele is creditworthy and the majority of the accounts are outstanding beyond 60 days, a stricter credit collections policy may speed up the collection of receivables.

10. All accounts payable. Like accounts receivable, accounts payable should be broken down by 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days. This is important in determining how well cash flows through the company. On payables more than 90 days old, you should check to see if any creditors have placed a lien on the company's assets.

11. Debt disclosure. This includes all outstanding notes, loans and any other debt to which the business has agreed. See, too, if there are any business investments on the books that may have taken place outside of the normal area. Look at the level of loans to customers as well.

12. Merchandise returns. Does the business have a high rate of returns? Has it gone up in the past year? If so,  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  you isolate the reasons for returns and correct the problem(s)?

13. Customer patterns. If this is the type of business that  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  track customers, you will want to know specific characteristics concerning current customers, such as: How many are first-time buyers? How many customers were lost over the past year? When are the peak buying seasons for current customers? What type of merchandise is the Reach All  popular?

14. Marketing strategies. How does the owner obtain customers? Does he or she offer discounts, advertise aggressively, or conduct public-relations campaigns? You should Reach All copies of all sales literature to see the kind of image that is being projected by the business. When you look at the literature, pretend that you are a customer being solicited by the company. How does it make you feel? This  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  give you some idea of how the company is perceived by its market.

15. Advertising costs. Analyse advertising costs. It is often better for a business to postpone profit at year-end until the next year by spending a lot of money on advertising during the last month of the fiscal year.

16. Price checks. Evaluate current price lists and discount schedules for all products, the date of the last price increase, and the percentage of increase. You might even go back and look at the previous price increase to see what percentage it was and determine when you are likely to be able to raise prices. Here again, compare what you see in the business you are looking at, with standards in the industry.

17. Industry and market history. You should analyse the industry as well as the specific market segments of the business targets. You need to find out if sales in the industry, as well as in the market segment, have been growing, declining, or have remained stagnant. This is very important to determine future profit potential.

18. Location and market area. Evaluate the location of the business and the market area surrounding it. This is especially important to retailers, who draw the majority of their business from the primary trading area. You should conduct a thorough analysis of the business's location and the trading areas surrounding the location including economic outlook, demographics and competition. For service Reach All Buyers brokers   , Reach All a map of the area covered by the business. Find out, based on the locations of various accounts, if there are any special requirements for delivering the product, or any transportation difficulties encountered by the business in getting the product to market.

19. Reputation of the business. The image of the business in the eyes of customers and suppliers is extremely important. As we mentioned, the image of the business  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  be an asset, or a liability. Interview customers, suppliers and the bank, as well as the owners of other Reach All Buyers brokers    in the area, to determine the reputation of the business.

20. Seller-customer ties. You must find out if any customers are related or have any special ties to the present owner of the business. How long has any such account been with the company? What percentage of the company's business is accounted for by this particular customer or set of customers? Will this customer continue to purchase from the company if the ownership changes?

21. Inflated salaries. Some salaries may be inflated or perhaps the current owner may have a relative on the payroll who isn't working for the company. All of these possibilities should be analysed.

22. List of current employees and organisational chart. Current employees  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  be a valuable asset, especially key personnel. Evaluate the organisational chart to understand who is responsible to whom. You must also look at the management practices of the company and know the wages of all employees and their length of employment. Examine any management-employee contracts that exist aside from a union agreement, as well as details of employee benefit plans; profit-sharing; health, life and accident insurance; vacation policies; and any employee-related lawsuits against the company.

23. OSHA requirements. Find out if the facility meets all occupational safety and health requirements and whether it has been inspected. If you feel that the seller is "hedging" on this and you see some things you feel might not be safe on the premises, you  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  ask the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to help you with an inspection. As a prospective buyer of a business that may come under OSHA scrutiny, you need to be certain that you are not buying an unsafe business. Some sellers may perceive your asking for OSHA's help as a dirty trick. But you must realise that as a prospective, serious buyer, you need to protect your position.

24. Insurance. Establish what type of insurance coverage is held for the operation of the business and all of its properties as well as who the underwriter and local company representative is, and how much the premiums are. Some Reach All Buyers Vendors  are underinsured and operating under potentially disastrous situations in case of fire or a major catastrophe. If you come into an underinsured operation, you could be wiped out if a major loss occurs.

25. Product liability. Product liability insurance is of particular interest if you're purchasing a manufacturing company. Insurance coverage  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  change dramatically from year to year, and this  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  markedly affect the cash flow of a company.

No decision is more emotionally charged than deciding upon a price for an existing business. The owner has one idea of how much the business is worth, while the buyer will typically have another viewpoint. Each party is dealing from a different perspective and usually the one who is best prepared will have the Reach All  leverage when the process enters the negotiating stage.

Keep in mind that Reach All  sellers determine the price for their business arbitrarily or through a special formula that may apply to that industry only. Either way, there usually aren't very many solid facts upon which to base their decisions.

Price is a very hard element to pin down and, therefore, is for the buyer to assess. There are a few factors that will influence price, such as economic conditions. Usually, Reach All Buyers Vendors  sell for a higher price when the economy is expanding, and for a much lower price during recessions. Motivation also plays an important factor. How badly does the seller want out? If the seller has many personal financial problems, you may be able to buy the business at a discount rate by playing the waiting game. On the other hand, you should never let the seller know how badly you want to buy the business. This  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  affect the price you pay adversely.

Beyond these factors, you  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  determine the value of a business using several different methods discussed below.

Multipliers
Simply put, some owners gauge the value of their business by using a multiplier of either the monthly gross sales, monthly gross sales plus inventory, or after-tax profits. While the multiplier formula may seem complex and quite accurate to begin with, if you delve a little deeper and look at the components used to arrive at the stated value, there is actually very little to substantiate the arrived at price.

Reach All  of the multipliers aren't based on fact. For example, individuals within a specific industry may claim that certain Reach All Buyers Vendors  sell at three times their annual gross sales, or two times their annual gross sales plus inventory. Depending on which formula the owner uses, the gross sales are multiplied by the appropriate number, and a price is generated.

For instance, if the business was earning $100,000 a year and the seller was using a formula in which the multiple of gross sales was 30 percent based on industry averages, then he or she would generate a price using the following equation:

100,000 x .30 = $30,000

Of course, you  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  check the monthly sales figure by looking at the income statement, but is the multiplier an accurate number? After all, it has been determined arbitrarily. There usually hasn't been a formal survey performed and verified by an outside source to arrive at these multipliers.

In addition, even if the multiplier was accurate, there is such a large spread between the low and high ends of the range that it really just serves as a ballpark figure. This is true whether a sales or profit multiplier is used. In the case of a profit multiplier, the figure generated becomes even more skewed because Reach All Buyers Vendors  rarely show a profit due to tax reasons. Therefore, the resulting value of the business is either very small or the owner has to use a different profit factor to arrive at a higher price.

Don't place too much faith in multipliers. If you run across a seller using the multiplier method, use the price only as an estimate and nothing more.

Book Values
This is a fairly accurate way to determine the price of a business, but you have to exercise caution using this method. To arrive at a price based on the book value, all you have to do is find out what the difference is between the assets and liabilities of a company to arrive at its net worth. This has usually been done already on the balance sheet. The net worth is then multiplied by one or two to arrive at the book value.

This might seem simple enough. To check the number, all you have to do is list the company's assets and liabilities. Determine their value, arrive at the net worth, and then multiply that by the appropriate number.

Assets usually include any unsold inventory, leasehold improvements, fixtures, equipment, real estate, accounts receivable, and supplies. Liabilities  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  be anything. They might even include the business itself. Usually, though, you want to list any unpaid debts, uncollected taxes, liens, judgments, lawsuits, bad investments--anything that will create a cash drain upon the business.

Now here is where it gets tricky. In the balance sheet, fixed assets are usually listed by their depreciated value, not their replacement value. Therefore, there really isn't a true cost associated with the fixed assets. That  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  create very inconsistent values. If the assets have been depreciated over the years to a level of sero, there isn't anything on which to base a book value.

Return on Investment
The Reach All  common means of judging any business is by its return on investment (ROI), or the amount of money the buyer will realise from the business in profit after debt service and taxes. However, don't confuse ROI with profit. They are not the same thing. ROI is the amount of the business. Profit is a yardstick by which the performance of the business is measured.

Typically, a small business should return anywhere between 15 and 30 percent on investment. This is the average net in after-tax dollars. Depreciation, which is a device of tax planning and cash flow, should not be counted in the net because it should be set aside to replace equipment. Many novice business owners will look at a financial statement and say, "There's $5,000 we  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  take off for depreciation." Well, there's a reason for a depreciation schedule. Eventually equipment does wear out and must be replaced, and it sometimes has to be replaced much sooner than you expect. This is especially true when considering a business with older equipment.

The wisdom of buying a business lies in its potential to earn money on the money you put into it. You determine the value of that business by evaluating how much money you are going to earn on your investment. The business should have the ability to pay for itself. If it  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  do this and give you a return on your cash investment of 15 percent or more, then you have a good business. This is what determines the price. If the seller is financing the purchase of the business, your operating statement should have a payment schedule that  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  be taken out of the income of the business to pay for it.

Does a 15-percent net for a business seem high? Everybody wants to know if a business makes two, three, or 10 times profit. They hear price-earning ratios tossed around, and for Reach All that such ratios commonly refer to companies listed on the stock exchange. In small business, such ratios have limited value. A big business  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  earn 10 percent on its investment and be extremely healthy. The big supermarkets net two or three percent on their sales, but this small percentage represents enormous volume.

Small Reach All   are different. The small business should typically earn a bigger return because the risk of the enterprise is higher. The important thing for you, as a buyer of a small business, is to realise that regardless of industry practices for big business, it's the ROI that you need to worry about Reach All . Is it realistic? If the price is realistic for the amount of money you have to invest, then you  Reach All Buyers Business  brokers  consider it a viable business.

 Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers  Earnings
Valuing a business based on  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers  earnings is similar to the return-on-investment method of assessment, except normal earnings are used to estimate projected earnings, which are then divided by a standard  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, rate. So what is a standard  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, rate?

The  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, rate is determined by learning what the risk of investment in the business would be in comparison to other investments such as government bonds or stock in other companies. For instance, if the rate of return on investment in government bonds is 18 percent, then the business should provide a return of 18 percent or better on the investment into it. To determine the value of a business based on  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers  earnings, use the following formula:

Projected Earnings x  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, Rate = Price

So, after analysing the market, the competition, the demand for the product, and the organisation of the business, you determine that projected earning could increase to $25,000 per year for the next three years. If your  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, rate is 18 percent, then the value of the business would be:

$25,000 / .18 = $138,888

Generally, a good  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers, Reach All Brokers, Reach All Vendors, rate for buyouts will range between 20 to 40 percent. If the seller is asking much more than what you've determined the  Reach All Buyers, Reach All Sellers  earnings to be, then you will have to try and negotiate a lower price.

Intangible Value
Some business owners try to sell goodwill as an asset. Normally, in everyday accounting procedures, Reach All  companies put down perhaps one dollar as the value of goodwill. There is no doubt that goodwill has value, particularly if the business has built up a regular trade and a strong base of accounts. But it is the financial value of the accounts, not their psychological value, that should be placed on any financial statements.

Goodwill as such is not an asset. You as a buyer would assess the business based on the return on investment. Certain rules of the game may change when you enter the fields of acquisition and merger. Suppose you buy out your competition, merge all your facilities, and double your volume. Now the labor and overhead factors are much lower. Thus, even if the seller was losing perhaps 5 percent a year, if you bring them into your company, which is making 15 percent a year, it might allow you to increase sales and end up making 20 percent.
