If you’re a business owner who is ready to retire or for some other reason looking to sell your company, you may be wondering where to begin. Selling a business can be a complex process, but there are steps you can take to help make it smoother.

2. GATHER YOUR FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Transparency is a critical aspect to keep in mind when trying to sell your business quickly and efficiently. Potential investors will want to review clear and concise financial records that can offer them the confidence that the business is robust, and there are no hidden weaknesses that could emerge after the deal is closed. To project transparency and build trust, you should have certain documents readily available to showcase to potential buyers, such as:
- Federal income tax returns for at least three years
- Year-to-date profit and loss statement, along with three years of historical data
- Comprehensive lists of inventory, equipment, and other tangible assets
If you don’t have an in-house accountant, consider our premium subscription to provide professional and personalized guidance with a step-by-step plan to gather and analyze your business’s financial assets to guarantee that the selling process is confidential, effective, and transparent.
3. DETERMINE THE VALUE OF YOUR BUSINESS
It’s essential to determine the value of your business before attempting to sell it. Without a clear understanding of your business’s worth, you won’t know if you’re receiving a fair price, even if you manage to sell it quickly. For instance, if you sell it for well below market value, you may have wasted your time. Community Business Brokers can assist you in determining the value of your business.
While it’s commonly believed that a small business’s value is typically based on a multiple of its annual cash flow, several other factors may come into play, such as being in a desirable location or being in a rapidly growing industry. To obtain an accurate and impartial valuation of your business, it’s wise to consult with an expert, which Community Business Brokers provides through our Professional Business subscription.
