Business Partnership celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019, it is amongst the longest-standing of the handful of national business sales agencies.

Collectively, we have supported sales for SMEs in every sector, ranging in value from a few thousand pounds to many millions. In doing so, we are a key resource to business owners in each of our local communities to achieve their next stage of life, be that retirement, or the ability to invest in a new business opportunity.

The role of our Regional Partners is to support business owners, earning fees from business sales & valuations, as well as acquisition and exit planning consultancy. The only BFA full member business brokerage, Business Partnership is also amongst the UKs most proven.

You will join a national group of fellow entrepreneurs, who also enjoy a flexible and rewarding lifestyle. Some are working to build their franchise, having only joined in the last year whilst others have over 20 years experience with the brand.

All franchisees come to us having had previous careers in business and industry. So we have the accountants, bankers and IFAs you might expect in our fold, but we also have successful business owners who, having exited and sold their own businesses, are now helping others through the same process.

Because all our Regional Partners (franchisees) bring these different careers and experiences with them, we are a collaborative and supportive franchise all willing to share knowledge and expertise.


Where Business Partnership is different is that the board of directors are also franchisees themselves. This means they are aware of the changing needs of clients, adaptations in the market as well as the hands on operations necessary to deliver the service.

You will bring your previous business experience,  we fill the gaps in your knowledge to be a broker with;

  • 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 the systems that enable that. Business Partnership provides;

  • 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

What will I do as a Franchisee

As you would guess, once established, daily tasks revolve around promoting the business sale you have on the market, responding to enquiries and speaking with potential buyers. Nurturing your business network is a vital part of your success so we would expect you to be attending at least one professional event each week.

Interspersed with these routine tasks will be meetings with clients and their potential buyers, offer negotiations and then the activities which nurture deals through to completion. The latter requiring good working relationships with solicitors and accountnats all working to the same goal.
