There are 8 REASONS why you should work with an AIBB accredited professional:

1 – Training
The AIBB runs its own industry-specific national training program for business brokers, taught by industry leaders and allied professionals who are experts in their respective fields. The national training program has enabled the AIBB to continuously raise the level of expertise within its membership base.

2 – Code of Conduct
The AIBB has a code of conduct that all members adhere to. It was established in 1989 to maintain public confidence and professionalism, honesty, ability and integrity of accredited members. The code of conduct is fundamental to the future success of AIBB and its members.

3 – Bizstats Database
The AIBB owns and operates a database unique to its members, giving them access to relevant business sales information. It is a unique tool that enables AIBB members to accurately and factually assess the current market value for a wide range of business types.

4 – Registered Business Valuers
The institute runs an advanced business valuing course for senior, experienced brokers who have been practising for at least five years. It concentrates on valuing small to medium sized enterprises and is the premier training type in Australia in this area. Graduates from the course are registered with the Institute as Registered Business Valuers where their contact details can be accessed.

5 – Continuing Professional Development
Every year AIBB members are required to undertake continued professional development education and assessment to ensure that members demonstrate professional competence, and keep abreast with changes in approach and legislation and the latest developments in the industry and across all markets.

6 – National Conference
Every year AIBB organises a national conference where the latest industry developments, legislative changes, ideas and future directions in the industry are addressed by a wide range of internationally acclaimed industry practitioners and speakers. Members also take part in a range of practical workshops where their skills, knowledge and currency with present and future aspects of the industry are also addressed. At the national conference, high achievers will also get recognised for their efforts in the business broking profession.

7 – Government Liaisons
On a consultative basis, the institute’s executive bodies (and legal counsel) advise and make representations to both state and federal government on matters affecting its members, industry practices and consumer affairs, to ensure ‘best practice’ outcomes for all parties.

8 – International Affiliations
The AIBB consistently strives to keep abreast of international trends in the business transfer industry and is a Chapter Member of the International Business Brokers Association. Members regularly interact with those counterparts and participate in international exchange programs for member education and governance.
