Buying a Business in South Africa

Buying a business in South Africa is always a major decision. Buying a business when immigrating to South Africa can be considered to be an even larger step.

There is no doubt that when undertaking immigration to South Africa on a business permit your choice of business is of paramount importance. Not only will the business you buy be your future income but will also dictate how succesful your move will be, as well as meeting ongoing requirements for your business permit's eligibility.

Intergate Immigration has long specialised in assisting immigrants with obtaining a business permit, from setting up the correct structures, to business plans, tax issues and the actual business permit application.

Of course there are general rules to buying a business the world over, but there are also particular considerations.

Also, through our selected partner Africa Business Opportunities we are able to provide you advice, guidance and sourcing of an appropriate business to buy.

What considerations must you take into account when Buying a Business in South Africa?

Often large financial decisions are involved but, in addition to this, other matters have to taken into consideration:
  • The appropriateness of the business for permit regulations;
  • Management run or hands on;
  • Existing financials and infrastructure;
  • Value for money;
  • Exit strategies;
  • Asset registers;
  • Outstanding or potential liabilities;
  • Market threats;
  • Business stability and growth prospects.

Our Buying a business in South Africa Services

Our services are provided by leading business experts, African Business Opportunites, and can be broken down into 2 catagories:
  1. Sourcing appropriate businesses - here we get involved in consulting as to the type of business you may wish to purchase, the hot sectors, and move on to indentify appropriate businesses for your consideration as well as due dilligence and negotiations.
  2. Due dilligence - where you have sourced the business yourself. A due diligence exercise provides you with the peace of mind that the purchase you are making is value for money. It is common when purchasing a house to engage the services of a professional surveyor. Their job is to inspect the property to ensure it is what you expect it to be, point out areas of concern and ultimately, from a lender’s perspective, to answer the question: is it worth what you are paying for it? Due diligence is a similar exercise on a business. It is your way of safeguarding your investment of time, money and commitment.
