Important Steps to Sell your Business

1. Agree with your Agent on a Listing Sale Price (or the Advertised Sale Price). You should also discuss what price you’re prepared to accept and be prepared to look at lower offers (a low offer does not necessarily reflect how you will finish up!).

2. Collate information ready for a Buyer including financials, leases, plant & equipment list, staffing and so on.

3. Be ready to meet and discuss your business with a Buyer. This means both you and your business must be organised and present well.

4. Be ready to accept an Offer. Discuss with your family what price and terms you’re prepared to accept, line up a solicitor who can work on your file NOW from start to finish, if you plan to travel then line up a Power of Attorney who can sign on your behalf, and if there are potential tax implications then find out now what scenarios we’re working with so that we can structure a deal that will work. Buyers can move on if a deal isn’t struck within a few days!

5. Be ready to Settle. Close off as many sales as you can (stock in trade will only transfer at cost to the Buyer so make sure you profit while you can), organise final electricity and gas readings, organise and sign any transfer documents for leases and rental agreements, and tally up a final statement of accounts for any adjustments to be made at Settlement (e.g. deposits received or payments made in advance).
