We offer security and confidentiality

Business Sales Australia can market your property or business in the most confidential way possible. We routinely qualify prospective buyers so your employees, suppliers, customers and competitors do not become aware your business is on the market. After initial qualification buyers are required to sign a “Confidentiality Agreement” before sensitive information is disclosed. This agreement binds the prospective buyer, prohibiting them from disclosing proprietary information and other details of your business. Meetings are confidentially conducted either offsite or on the business site at convenient times agreed beforehand with the owner.


Business Sales Australia personnel realise many obstacles can compromise a deal when selling a business. We are specifically trained and have many years experience in the fine art of successful negotiation. Our business brokers are confident they can turn problems between Lawyers, Accountants, Finance Brokers, Banks, Landlords and buyers into creative and successful solutions. In our dealings with other parties we are mindful of keeping the clients’ interests paramount.

Consider these steps we can take together;

  1. Your Business Sales Australia broker will begin by establishing the objectives to be achieved. A plan of action is agreed once the objectives are clearly formulated.
  2. Prior to marketing any listed property or business a detailed profile on the listing is completed. The profile includes comment on the industry, details of the business, the financial details, plant and equipment list, particulars of leased or otherwise funded assets, lease details of the premises (where applicable) and also included is a summary of the area in which the property or business is located.
  3. A confidential marketing plan is agreed. Although targeted in media towards identified buyers the details of the business will be sufficiently general to ensure employees, suppliers, customers and competitors remain unaware your business is for sale. This helps to protect the goodwill, thus helping to maintain good market value.
  4. Advertisements are placed in accordance with the agreed plan. This normally includes our popular websites and the media deemed appropriate.
  5. Careful screening of prospective buyers helps to ensure that qualification is of a high standard.
  6. Meetings with potential buyers are arranged at the seller’s convenience and in the strictest confidence.
  7. Your broker is a skilled intermediary. He will agree with you the best way to proceed with the negotiation, keeping your interests in mind throughout all complex discussion stages with all parties, the formation of a contract and to completion of settlement.
  8. Business Sales Australia personnel are very aware of the complexities involved in arranging for the satisfactory sale of a business or property. It offers considerable support to its brokers to help ensure the sellers’ interests remain of paramount importance and that all parties receive professional consideration in their dealings with us.
