As a business broker, branding yourself with consistent and ongoing content is critical to your long-term success. Branding yourself protects you from outside factors that may affect your company's brand in the future and allows you to continue making progress if your company's circumstances change.

Business tax filings are very important factor in determining the credibility of business financials. Just seeing those financials, you can't determine whether those values are overstated or not. Some business owners provide made up financials to buyers - so, that's where tax fillings come in.

Sometimes business brokers just can't win with their clients, because if an offer comes in too fast & too early then they must have lowballed the price & the seller is suspicious, and if not enough offers come in after putting the business on the market - they may look unproductive to their clients.

Buyers, when inquiring about a business, remember that you are asking for confidential information. Even the fact that the business is for sale is confidential and the premature exposure of the sale could damage the business and its owner.
