Generally speaking, commission is charged on the final sales price of a business (including inventory). Brokers should be able to provide services and a higher return that more than justify the commission spent. Most business brokers will not engage a listing/sale that divides the commission. There is just too much work and too many issues associated with selling a business to justify otherwise.

I hope this helps.

As with every question about commissions, ALL COMMISSIONS ARE NEGOTIATED between the Seller and the Broker. It depends upon the Broker, and a lot of other issues. We do not charge a commission on MOST businesses. There are even exceptions within our own program.

Eric,

We consider the inventory as part of the selling price and therefore apply the commission. Inventory is part of the business the same way as equipment and goodwill are.

Erick, we do charge on the inventory, but some Sellers may dispute this; if they do, I would offer a compromise.
