Businesses in Australia

Australia is one of the world's most economically driven and successful countries, and that is because we really put our all into what we do. That means that businesses in Australia are some of the most popular and most successful. Of course, there are many different kinds of company that finds financial success in our shores.

Some are based on manufacturing. Industrial and manufacturing businesses, along with import, export, and wholesale businesses, are brilliant for those that have a solid understanding of product design and customer expectations. They are then able to transform that into goods which the public love. Automotive businesses are good example of this, as are all transport and distribution businesses.

Others look to provide a service. Service businesses are becoming more popular as they are able to add value easily, and be based within a city or be rural businesses. Good examples of service businesses include education and training businesses, as well as professional businesses such as lawyers. Some provide a service that is hard to quantify, such as accommodation and tourism businesses, or even health and beauty businesses. They all contribute something intangible to their customers. Another intangible line of businesses are franchise businesses, offering smaller companies the rewards of better establishing groups.

Some focus on the home. Home and garden businesses, along with food and hospitality businesses, address our basic needs, and fulfil them in a way that gratifies the consumer. Retail businesses such as these fill a gap in the market. These businesses also have a link with the leisure and entertainment businesses that are so successful, such as sports centres.

Whatever business area you are interested in, you can be guaranteed that there will be a myriad of successful companies in Australia working away ñ and a niche vacuum where you could enter.


Hints and tips on buying a business

Buying a business can be an incredibly exciting time, but it is a serious business, and it needs serious consideration. Here are the three most important things to bear in mind when you are thinking about purchasing a business:

1. Consider existing employees.
When you purchase a business, there are many different situations how this could occur. You may be buying a business which you want to continue running exactly as it is; you may wish to take over the business in order to make changes; and you may be combining it with a business of your own. Whatever the circumstances, there will be employees at the company that will be concerned about their jobs. You should decide quickly what your approach will be towards them, so that they can either rest easy that their job is secure, or begin the search for different employment.

2. Find out whether the premises are leased or owned.
This will be a huge factor into what price you believe is fair to pay for the business. The asset of the premises cannot be over-estimated. If, however, the premises where the business operates are leased, then you will need to get in touch with the landlord and work out exactly what arrangements have been made. You may decide to move, or try to re-negotiate the rent rates.

3. Understand branding.
Sometimes, the intellectual property of a company is worth far more than its physical assets. If this is the case for a company that you have your eye on, then you will need to ensure that the intellectual property ñ including the branding of the name, logo, and anything else individual to the property ñ will be included in the sale. You may find the owners will resist this, and so you may have to change your offer to reflect this.
