Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a small business isn’t easy, but we make it easier. At Beacon, we help entrepreneurs avoid the upfront fees and heachaches associated with a business sale. Our Transaction Advisors help sellers (and buyers) every step of the way from valuation to handing over the keys.
We focus on main street businesses based in the U.S. These businesses typically have 3 to 25 employees and revenues from $500,000 to $10,000,000+.
We strive to get you competitive offers within 90 days. Depending on financing, it can take another 30-90 days to close. After closing, most sellers will stay on for a 1-3 month transition period to help the buyer get up to speed on the business. After an initial 4-week training period, the seller is typically compensated on an hourly basis the time they spend assisting the buyer.
We earn a commission when you sell your business, but it's completely free to test the waters.
We value businesses based on seller's discretionary earnings. This is another way of saying the cashflow you receive as an owner of the business. This amount is typically multiplied by 2-4x depending on the business. You can learn more by reading our Seller’s Guide to Small Business Valuation.
We vet buyers by assessing their finances, credit history, industry experience and background. In some cases, we also perform background checks. After vetting the buyer and signing a confidentiality agreement, we do several introductory calls with the buyer to share details about the business and answer all of their initial questions. We only introduce sellers to qualified buyers who are serious about making an offer.
