You are ready to invest in the U.S. but afraid to start from the scratch? You can consider buying an existing company in the U.S. Of course, this situation has its own pros and cons. Do not think you will just write a cheque and get the keys.
Consider the Pros and Cons
Buying an existing company has a lot of pros. For example; an existing customer group, a team in which people know each other and avoiding the expenses of starting a whole new business. You simply start doing your business with cash flow thanks to current inventory and receivables. Moreover, you can apply for investor visas by buying an active company.
Yet, it also has its unique cons. Primarily, cost of buying a company can be more than starting a new one since this business already has its own business concept, customer background, brand value and fundamentals.
Choosing the Company
There are lots of business types you can consider. To narrow the list, you should ask yourself these questions:
- What are my fields of interest?
- What are my skills?
- What are the conditions I want to see in a company?
Make Your Research
After finding the business, you should make a deep and objective research to see the fair price of this company. You should review documents such as financial notices, tax returns, employee files and agreements.
It’s a good idea to get help from an attorney in this step. An accountant can also help you with financial records.
Buying the Company
If you think you are ready to buy the company, you should prepare a sales agreement. This agreement describes everything you intend to buy; business assets, customer lists and intellectual property… Please contact us to get help about sales agreement.
Closing the Company
The last ring of the chain is to close the company. Of course, you need to get professional consultancy about this. Please contact us if you think buying a company is a better option for you.
Advantages of Buying an Existing Company
When you buy a company, you also buy the customer portfolio of this company. Of course, this increases the costs; however, when you think about it, it is not a blank investment in the long-term. You reduce the costs of customer research, marketing and advertising.
When you buy an existing company with a price of $100,000 or more, you can also apply for E-2 Investor Visa.
