Newark, NJ Business Climate

By Achim Neumann

Newark New Jersey is home to some of the biggest corporations in the country including IBM, Panasonic Corporation, and JPMorgan Chase. The city continues to reshape its business climate as an economic renaissance is beginning to take hold as NYC outgrows itself. Situated within the gateways of the Northeast Corridor, Newark is a major transportation hub with a population of about quarter a million people and millions if you consider it’s just outside New York City.

While the city has had some troubles over the last few years, both the government and private initiatives are underway to repair the current economic status of the city. Among these programs currently being implemented by the economic council is the Urban Enterprise Zone Program, a project expected to benefit both large and small businesses.

Ideal Location for Business Expansion

Located within the heart of the Northeast, Newark is one of the oldest cities in the country. Newark is just 30 minutes or less by train to the center of Manhattan and Jersey City, both major business hubs. For businesses looking to expand their services, Newark provides an ideal location because of its close vicinity to both.

Because the city aims to attract new businesses, local business codes have been revised and simplified to lessen the burden of starting a new business within the city.

Business Tax Cuts for Hiring City Residents

In an effort to boost the employment rate within the city, the local government has set up an ordinance approving payroll tax cuts for businesses getting 50% of their pool of workers form local residents. This benefits not only local communities but encourages an increase in employment rate.

Under the new ordinance, business owners are provided with a one percent exemption on the employee tax wage deduction. The tax ordinance also relevantly comes in with the new enforcement of tax policies which hopes to bring in new investors and improve the city’s economic prospects.

Transformative Projects to Attract Potential Businesses

The city government is slowly shifting its focus to infrastructure development to boost the city’s economic landscape and create a resurgence of business opportunities.

This is not an impossible feat considering the city lies within a bustling urban area with structural assets that include connections to the busiest transportation routes in the country. Newark lies in an industrial corridor connecting several economic giants and has some of the largest educational andentertainment venues in the region.

New real estate development around the city includes the construction of commercial and office parks for various large international chains like Starbucks, Whole Foods, Chipotle, Gap, and Nike. Targeting a new economic renaissance, Newark’s close proximity to New York and Manhattan is expected to bring in a pool of new investors and talents who are looking for cheaper costs of living and better prospects for success.

There are also plenty of businesses for sale in Newark where great opportunities are available. If you’re looking to buy a business in Newark or sell a business in Newark, let the team at A. Neumann & Associates LLC assist you in your search. Starting with a qualified business valuation advisor in Newark is a good place to start, all you need to do is reach out to us!

Client Testimonials

“Working with Marc and his company was a pleasure. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. Marc handled most of the interaction and he has one of the greatest demeanors. Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”

Douglas DiCeglio

“I recently completed an acquisition using A Neumann & Associates. Tony Valentino was very helpful and accessible during the entire process. They do a thorough job vetting both parties and got us to the finish line.”

Srini Mudambi

“Claus out of Florida helped us with the sale of our business. We had never done anything like this and him and his team walked us through the process from start to finish. We had some challenges through the process and Claus continued to show up even in the difficult conversations.”

Colby Harris, Co-Owner, Del Mar Designs

“Claus Madsen thoroughly helped us with selling our company. From the 1st introductory meeting explaining to us what was possible, to providing us with resources to assist with the sale. Claus was invaluable throughout the whole sales process. Claus was with us every step of the journey and always made himself available for any questions or issues that came up along the way. If you are interested in selling your business, I encourage you to reach out to Claus and the ANA team so that they can let you know what’s achievable. These guys will make it happen!”

Ron Harris, Co-Owner and Vice President, Del Mar Designs

They are honest and sincere and have always performed better than my expectations. They are the only one i would use for the sales of my businesses.”

James Belanger, Business Owner

“I wanted to take a second to commend the exemplary customer service from both you [Karin Neumann] and Mr. Valentino. It’s both a rarity in the industry, and very much appreciated.”

Andrew G., Investor

“We worked with Neumann & Associates to investigate the purchase of a research company in 2010 and found Achim to be capable, forthright and realistic. His depth of experience enabled us to fully understand our options, offering creative options that might enable the acquisition. While we didn’t acquire that particular company at that time, we know exactly who to call whenever we’re looking to buy or sell a business.”

Daniel Coates, Buyer

“Purchasing a business through this firm was a pleasure. Gary was very professional and transparent throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with A Neumann & Associates in the future.”

William Klemens, Buyer

“I utilized A. Neumann & Associates to assist in an M&A process. They are VERY thorough in using their time-tested process to calculate the value of investment opportunities, a process which provided a very detailed explanation for the value of the potential opportunity. Additionally, they also went above and beyond to extend other services including connecting with others who specialize in your industry and can assist with necessary steps including legal and accounting. Highly recommended!”

Edward Lane , Business Owner

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Achim, who explained the process in detail. He had his colleague Gary come to my office in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using when the time comes for me to sell my business for max value. They gave me great insight into the steps I need to take now to get the best deal in the future. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. They not only know their stuff, their actually just real nice guys.”
