Preparing Your Business For Sale

back to list

Are you thinking of selling your business at any time within the next five years? If the answer is ‘yes', or even just ‘perhaps - as long as the price is right', then you'll need to start preparing now. Lack of preparation is the main reason why 70% of businesses advertised for sale, fail to sell.

Even if you're not thinking of selling, it's good commercial practice to run your company as if it were for sale - this will help improve performance and results and mean that you'll be ready to respond should a potential purchaser make an unsolicited approach to buy it.

So, no matter what the answer to the question, ‘Are you thinking of selling your business?’, now is the time to start grooming it with the help of BOSS Federation McInnes Corporate.
