Business Partnership

Since founding in 1979 Business Partnership has supported thousands of SMEs through the marketing and sale of their businesses. Collectively, we have sold SMEs in every sector, ranging in value from a few thousand pounds in value to many millions. In doing so, we have supported fellow business owners in our local communities.

Where you target your franchise will be where you are most effective. That could be high street, corporate, across all sectors, or you may choose to specialise in just a few.

Could you be a Business Broker?

At Business Partnership we fully understand the challenges our new Regional Partners (franchisees) face when starting as business brokers, after all we have all been where you are and have worn the t-shirt.

We bring decades of brokerage experience to your door and designed our package to give you the best chance of success.

Could you be a Business Broker?

What you need to be successful

Our franchisees come from the backgrounds you might suspect like banking and accountancy, but also some you may not, like engineering, marketing, wholesale and the care sector. Some have owned and sold their own businesses. Others have not. What makes them successful business brokers are some of these attributes:

  • An understanding of the fundamentals which make a good business
  • The ability to enjoy meeting people and building a rapport
  • Self-motivation and drive
  • A willingness to network amongst business groups
  • A desire to learn
  • A personal network amongst which you are well-regarded
  • Credibility in at least one business sector

Teamwork & Training

We may be a franchise but even the longest serving Regional Partners will seek advice from someone with specific expertise, and everyone brings something to the table. Whatever expertise and experience you bring with you will be beneficial. We then ensure the gaps in your knowledge to become a broker are filled.

Induction includes:

  • Soft start on fees to support your launch
  • 10 full days training with senior partners
  • How to value a business
  • Converting prospects
  • How to sell a business
  • Regulatory considerations
  • Key information resources vital to your success… and more

Value Builder

Additional income streams

Business sales are the backbone of the broker’s role, but there are additional income streams. These include paid valuation work, acquisition searches and, once qualified, work as a certified Value Builder coach.

Fees & franchise renewal

Our minimum entry cost is £25,000. Ongoing fees are simple. We charge only a modest, flat, monthly fee regardless of earnings, so you keep the rewards of your efforts. When your initial 5 year franchise term is complete, you renew by agreement, at no additional cost.
