How you get paid.

Business brokers are paid a success fee, or commission, for successfully selling a business. Brokers may also earn fees for performing business valuations and consulting.

Commissions - Business Brokers charge 10% for businesses valued at less than $1,000,000.

A Double Lehman commission is for Multi-Million dollar businesses and is calculated as follows:

  • 10% for the first $1 Million
  • 8% for the second $1 Million
  • 6% for the third $1 Million
  • 4% for the fourth $1 Million
  • 2% for everything after that

For example, if you broker a $3,000,000 business, your commission would be $240,000.

Retainers – Generally expected on larger deals. We typically charge $2,500 paid at the time of the engagement.

Consulting – This can be just about anything. You can get paid to facilitate mergers, improve financial performance, or restructure debt.
