Buying a Business

Looking to Buy a Business?

Connecting business buyers to sellers for over 20 years, the LINK experience is tailored to cater to everyone interested in buying a business. Whether you are a first time buyer looking to enter the market, a franchisor searching for franchisees, or a seasoned buyer looking to expand – LINK will make the buying process as smooth and hassle free as possible.

There is no cost when buying a business listed with a LINK Business Broker – the fee is paid by the seller.

However, should you wish your LINK Business Broker to approach an existing business, or seek a potential acquisition target that meets your needs, then you may enter into a Buyer’s Mandate with LINK. The terms of the mandate will include a commission payable to LINK based on the value of the business that is subsequently purchased. In such cases, the seller will not be required to pay commission.

To ensure the best possible service, LINK focuses on the following sectors:

  • Retail food
  • Retail general
  • Hospitality and Leisure
  • Manufacturing
  • Corporate
  • Franchise
  • Rural and Agriculture
  • Restaurants and Fast-Food
  • Services
