If you are thinking of selling your business you need to know what it is worth. Experience has taught us that it is best to do this as early as possible. Selling a business can take time and it is wise to allow for this in your strategies.

EVERYONE WHO RUNS THEIR OWN BUSINESS EVENTUALLY REACHES THE POINT WHERE THE TIME IS RIPE FOR A CHANGE. HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE REASONS:

  • I’ve decided to do something completely different because this business no longer provides me with a challenge
  • • I’ve decided to get out of this business because I don’t see future growth as being easily achievable
  • • I want to move to another area
  • • My financial position forces the sale
  • • Personal reasons mean that I no longer have the time to manage the business effectively
  • • I’ve spotted another opportunity that requires this capital
  • • I’ve reached the stage of life where this doesn’t hold the same interest as it used to
  • • I’ve increased the profitability of my business and I now want to make a profit upon its sale
  • • I want to buy a bigger/smaller business
  • • I’ve worked hard and now I want a quieter life

WHATEVER YOUR REASONS FOR WISHING TO ENTER THE MARKET TO SELL, YOU WILL NEED TO ESTABLISH WHAT YOUR BUSINESS IS WORTH.

This will depend upon many different factors including:

  • The location of the business
  • • The condition of the premises
  • • The value of the freehold or lease
  • • The extent and condition of the trading equipment
  • • The profitability of the business
  • • The demand for the type of business
  • • The availability and cost of finance
