Who can buy my business?

If you are planning to sell your business, it is quite obvious for you to come across the question, who can buy my business. The answer to this question depends on various factors, such as the location of your business, the sector in which your business operates, the turnover etc. There could be several types of buyers who might be able to buy your business.
