How Do I Sell My Business?

Selling one’s business can be a time consuming and laborious exploit that requires meticulous planning and keen financial advising. Strategy is key, which is why New England Investment uses financial strategies to assist business owners in transitioning into the next stage of their lives or careers.

Before business owners resolve to sell, it’s crucial that they understand the process from start to finish, along with its potential risks and the factors that can affect the success of the business’s sale. But before delving into the ins and outs of the process, it’s important to be aware of the reasons that you wish to sell and to fully weigh the options and consequences of selling. Have you decided to sell simply because you believe that it’s the best time to do so? Is age a factor or is it perhaps due to a lack of fervor for your business that you once had? Are there financial or personal circumstances that have caused you to become inclined to sell? Regardless of the reason, you need to be fundamentally certain that selling is the direction you want to go.

Once you are confident of your determination to sell, you’ll want to make sure that every piece of the puzzle has fallen into place in preparation to be sold. This means making sure that you make the time and put the effort into organizing your business and ensuring that all is in order to maximize the sale price. The better prepared and more organized you are, the better chance of achieving the highest return possible.

You’ll need to accurately communicate the value proposition for your products and services, which entails providing precise records of accounting for a minimum of five years. Your mission is to demonstrate to potential buyers that your business is organized, reputable, focused, and goal-driven. Be sure to supply prospective buyers with full-bodied marketing plans, detailed records of both past and present clients, and corporate and HR documentation.
