Selling a Business

As a respected and successful business owner, you spend your career advising and servicing your clients.  How much of that planning advice have you done for yourself, your family and your own financial future?   When selling a business, a properly structured business sale, if done correctly, can help you to protect your own “sweat-equity” and pursue your own long-term goals.

Business brokers, also called business transfer agents, assist sellers of privately held small business – in the selling process.  They typically help to estimate the value of the business; advertise it for sale and work with the seller’s financial and legal team to close the deal.  When it comes time to sell a business, we can help you to objectively evaluate your options with your financial team, create a holistic plan for your financial future, and provide both short-term and long-term strategies for the proceeds from the sale of your business.

Entrepreneur (March 2013) explains in “10 Questions to Ask Before Selling A Business” that you need to consider many facets of your business before even putting a business up for sale.

We can assist you in the process to review these questions and more when selling a business including:

1. Is your business ready to sell?
2. How is a buyer going to value your business?
3. Who should be on your team when you  sell?
4. How should you position your sale-proceeds?
5. What are your tax implications?
6. Can you personally cope with the changes on the horizon?
7. Can your business thrive without you or without a key customer?
8. Would you be willing to stay on if the buyer wants you to?
9. What are the potential deal breakers?
10. What estate and asset protection strategies should you put in place?
