Do you have what it takes to become a Business Broker earning in excess of £100,000 per annum?

Established since 1979, Business Partnership is one of the UK's leading independent business broker networks with vast experience in advising owners on the sale of their businesses.

What is a Business Broker?

Business brokers support SME business owners through the sale of their business. The role encompasses initial valuation, advertising, vetting potential buyers and negotiating deals. Business brokers then work closely with specialist solicitors, accountants and others to ensure a sale completes.

Have you got the know-how to become a business broker?

Business Partnership Franchisees come from a wide variety of backgrounds like finance, accountancy, engineering, marketing, wholesale and the care sector. Some have owned and sold their own businesses. Others have not.

The Business Partnership does not have a tick-box of formal qualifications. They recruit on aspects of personality and past business credibility. Their most successful recruits demonstrate some of the following attributes;

  • An understanding of the fundamentals which make a good business
  • The ability to enjoy meeting people and building a rapport
  • Self-motivation and drive
  • A willingness to network amongst business groups
  •  A desire to learn
  •  A personal network amongst which you are well-regarded
  • Credibility in at least one business sector

Additional income streams

Business sales are the backbone of the broker’s role. Once you’ve mastered these there are services that offer additional income streams.  These include paid valuation work, acquisition searches and, once qualified, work as a certified Value Builder coach.

Where Business Partnership is unique is that the board of directors have all operated as franchisees. This means they are aware of the changing needs of clients, the challenges of the market as well as the hands on day to day work necessary to deliver the service.

  • Their training acknowledges the previous knowledge and experience you bring. Key headlines include;
  • 10 full days training with senior partners
  • How to value a business
  • Converting prospects
  • How to sell a business
  • Regulatory considerations
  • Key information resources vital to your success


You can’t run a modern business without flexibility and Business Partnership have the systems to enable that. They provide:

  • Bespoke, cloud-based CRM and admin systems for a totally portable office. You just need a reliable broadband connection.
  • 2 brands. Business Partnership and Business Partnership Corporate which target different levels of the market
  • 2 websites to support the brands
  • Marketing launch package
  • Ongoing mentoring from the senior board

The Investment:

The franchise fee is £25,000. Unlike other franchises, Business Partnership do not charge a levy or royalty on your earnings. Their costs are fixed and transparent. What you earn on top of this is yours to keep.  

What can you earn?

As a full member of the BFA, the verified break even should be within the first half year and you should be earning a minimum of £80,000 by the end of year 2 and over £100,000 after that……if you put the work in and follow the model.

Could you become a Business Partnership Franchisee?

Once trained, how your target your business is entirely up to you. Some offices focus on high street business sales. Some focus on engineering and manufacturing. Some focus on size, looking for £1m+ turnover businesses. Some prefer not to specialise at all.

How you focus your business will be determined by your past business experiences, where your network is strong and by what sectors give you most pleasure to work in.  You don’t get that level of flexibility with many franchises, so why not register your interest now!
