Buying a business

Recommended Posts



My family and I move out to Perth on a 163 visa in September, so need to get involved in a business. My preferred option now is to buy an existing business. I'd be interested to hear about anyone who has done this and how you found the business.


I've been looking at a few websites to get an idea of what is available, but there is severe lack of info on the businesses for sale (I don't expect to see detailed accounts online) and so I'm beginning to wonder if it's only those businesses that are unprofitable/dodgy/failing that are listed. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good website or broker? Are there companies I can register with in Perth who will contact me when suitable businesses become available?


My fall back position is to start the business I outlined in my business plan (or one of the other ideas I've had) sent with my visa application, but I'd much rather have an income from the start.


Thanks for your help
