Business Description

SBA financing, 6 mos no payments!

Online CPE (Continuing Professional Education) training company with IRS and NASB accreditations for all states established in 2006 is now available for acquisition. Revenue $399,897, DE $282,849, asking $890,000. The company has an integrated suite of online training courses through self-study and On-Demand webinars with an extensive library of course materials. There are 7,003 active clients plus an email list of 58,000 tax and accounting professionals.

The business has SBA pre-approval for a qualified buyer. SBA loans funded between Feb 1st and Sept 30th 2021 qualify for 6 months of no payments with loan forgiveness while program funds last. The SBA is also waiving the 3.5% guarantee fee which will save the buyer $26,478 in closing costs on this transaction.

The company successfully pivoted in 2020 from a business model of live tax seminars coupled with online CPE training to a 100% online model while maintaining revenue. In 2020 the company created and launched a Virtual Tax Seminar that is being hosted 4 times a week and a digital tax reference guide for CPAs and EAs. As a result of these changes revenue increased 31% in December year-over-year and the 4th quarter of 2020 was 11% above 2019.

The company operates on an ecommerce model with all orders placed via their online store. The business is relocatable and a staff can work remotely and does not need to work from a brick and mortar office. Office admins handle customer support/service. The owner’s role is primarily content development (written materials & webinars, 2020 tax materials have already been created), accreditation compliance/renewals, and managing the online store (this could be delegated to an admin) and finances.
