Buying a Business
Buying a business in Australia is much safer than in other parts of the world. Whether you are looking to run your own business, go into partnership or open a new franchise store, there are many laws and regulations protecting both the buyers and sellers. However, with that said, buyers cannot be excused from performing their own due diligence before they purchase a new business and they cannot expect anyone to guarantee its success. Therefore it is always advisable for new buyers in the market to get some expert advice to help them navigate the world of business brokering.
Overall, there are two main choices open to foreign investors seeking permanent residence in Australia. The first is to simply open your own premises, equipment and run your business yourself. This brings greater autonomy and for those with a proven business record to operate the way they choose, subject to Australian regulations. The alternative to this is to open a franchise store and, with the aid and support of the franchisor, increase your chances of long-term success.
