Buying a running business In Finland

Profit. Security. Possibilities.

Which business if the best choice for you?

In our business catalogue there is a list of objects for sale. For example, it is possible to buy a cafe or a car wash from €50,000, or a restaurant at €80-100,000. Also there are objects worth more than €3 million. It is necessary to understand that a Finnish business worth less than 200-400,000e generally does not give absolutely passive profit and requires the owner's participation in management or technical activities, as well as in customer service. In companies of €100,000 worth, key employees are rarely transferred with business, hence there is a need for hiring personnel. .

Be wise and rational!

Buying and doing business in a new country is always connected with risks. In order to choose a suitable business and be able to maintain or increase its profitability, as well as reduce risks - it is necessary to understand how it is arranged, and how the Finnish market as a whole is structured. It is possible to explore it on your own, but it is wise to use the advice of the experts. We will help you to see the realities, opportunities and hidden risks before you venture something.

Before buying a business in Finland, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are you going to participate in the activities of the enterprise or your goal is to receive a passive income?
  • In which language you are ready to manage the company and serve customers?
  • How does the ownership transfer process look like
  • What is profitability and taxation structure?

Business ownership change process

In some cases, it is possible to change the business' ownership of a legal entity with all its assets. Usually, the Finnish business is transferred to the buyer's own legal entity: the company's assets, customer base, key employees, contracts, etc. To do this, you need to register a company in Finland, in which we will kindly help you. Also we will help with accounting and legal support of business.
