we just bought a business – around $350,000
PLUS
Solicitor was $1500 on a fixed price agreement
Company setup was $990
Stamp duty close the $10,000
Accountant input was $2000 (incl advise on due diligence, which we did ourselves)
Other associated transfer costs was $1500
Plus costs associated with getting a loan

Then other costs
Insurance
premises lease (we are relocating)
Stock transport for the shift
Usual new business costs (b.cards etc)

When you come to sell then the broker will take 6% of total price, including stock, plus no doubt other fees,
Accountant allow 2,00
Legal, allow 2-3,000
