Texas Business Climate

By Achim Neumann

Whether you already live there or are considering buying a business in Texas or selling a business in Texas, it is important to know what makes the state ideal for business in general as well as some of the things to keep an eye out for. As one of the largest states in the US and being home to some very large cities (Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, etc), it is no doubt that this state is a powerhouse. If you are unsure of whether Texas is the right place for your next business venture, then you should understand the commitment. Texas has made an obligation to maintain its position as one of the best states for business in the country. Its business climate is full of factors that will ultimately aide in a business’s growth.

Texas Business Climate

Texas has businesses across the spectrum from small main street bodegas to gigantic corporations being headquartered in the state. With the state’s fair tax and regulatory policies, Texas was built for businesses to succeed. At the state level, corporate or personal income tax is nonexistent, giving people living there much more disposable income to live on or invest back into their companies.

Recently, the Texas government passed a bill providing more than four billion dollars in tax alleviation for different companies. As can be seen, the business climate in Texas is one of the best out there, and to add to it, The Texas Enterprise Fund is very attractive. The Texas Enterprise Fund, or (TEF), provides “deal-closing” grants to companies who are considering a new project in which one Texas site is competing with other out-of-state sites. The fund is  a financial incentive for companies whose projects would contribute significant capital investment and new employment opportunities to the Texas’ economy.


There cannot be a successful business or successful business climate without a quality workforce. The state boasts over 14 million inhabitants and offers very quality and large universities like the University of Texas, Rice, etc. There are thirty-seven public universities. This includes six state universities and fifty community college districts that help educate working talent in the Lonestar State. Bordering Mexico, there is also a very large population of bilingual workers which opens the state’s economy to LATAM as well.

Infrastructure: Air, Sea, and Land

Texas’ geographic location provides access to domestic and global markets by air, sea, and land. There are over 100 airports (commercial, cargo, private) hundreds of thousands of quality miles of public roads, and sixteen seaports that connect businesses in Texas to consumers across the world. These different means of travel for business owners allow them to connect and grow their business across the nation or across the world. This makes Texas one of the leading states in exports.

Why Texas?

Over the last ten years, Texas helps lead the nation in job creation and in population. If Texas was a sovereign nation, it would be the 10th largest economy in the world! Ahead of South Korea and Canada. Texas is home to more than fifty fortune five hundred headquarters. Since there is no corporate or personal income tax, business in Texas game on. Texas claims this is the reason they continually rank as one of the best states for business. They also have low energy costs, lower land costs, and fewer land restrictions, meaning that businesses have lower operating costs. If you’re looking to buy a business in Texas or sell a business in Texas please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Client Testimonials

“Your vetting is simply outstanding, among the best I've seen from a broker.”

Eric H., Investor

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Marc, who explained the process in detail. After meeting with Marc 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 to sell my business for max value. Working with Marc at A Neumann & Associates was very easy and professional. I did not know all that was going to be involved in selling my business but they helped me through the process. 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. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. Marc not only knows his stuff, but actually is a real nice guy.”

Double Diamond

Dennis Frazier

“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

“A Neumann & Associates is the only business broker I would use or consult with. They have assisted with 3 business sales over the past 15 years with me. 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.”
