You can start business by buying an existing one. Purchasing an on-going business may seem safer than starting from scratch. By buying one you may avoid those start-up headaches and costs. You may also gain the goodwill, suppliers and the customers and therefore get quick cash flow.

Nevertheless a question arises - why is the owner selling the business? Is it because he is unable to run it? Might you be buying a declining business? Has it problems with the suppliers? Is it badly located? Answers to these questions have to be found. Expert advice may be sought. If you are after all buying it then the question of valuation comes in. Again expertise may be necessary.
