>> How to sell my business
Making the decision to sell your business takes some careful thought. Even if selling eventually was your intention all along, choosing the right time to do it and selecting the right buyer isn't easy. Making sure that you have the right support from an adviser can help you to carry out the process more smoothly. It's vital to follow the correct steps if you want to get the best deal from selling your business, and Moorgate Partners can help you to make sure you get it right. Our London based consultants have a vast wealth of experience and in-house calculator tools to work out the best valuation and deals for businesses like yours.
>> Create an Exit Strategy
An exit strategy is essential for any business owner. Although you might start to think about it not long before you want to sell, it's never too early to think about how and when you're going to move on from your business. A good exit strategy should map out not only when you will sell the company, but how to set it up to survive without you.
>> Undertake due diligence
Due diligence is a crucial part of selling your business. This is the process by which you check that your company is in good condition and that you declare any issues that might be present. Due diligence can require combing over accounts, examining sales records and using IT specialists. All essential information about your business needs to be presented clearly for potential buyers to see so that they can make a smart decision based on an accurate valuation.
>> How much can I sell my business for
Do you know how much your business is worth? Putting a number on it isn't as simple as guessing what you think you should get for it using a calculator. Valuation requires a close look at your finances, reputation, and brand to work out how much it could be worth. It takes more than the numbers concerning sales and earnings. You also need to consider factors such as the strength of the company's management and recurring income. We have assisted in the sale and acquisition of many companies in London and around the UK and can provide you with the best advice possible for the sale of your enterprise.
>> Negotiate a good deal
Negotiating with potential buyers can be pretty frightening. You're worried that you won't get a good deal, or you could let the buyer get the upper hand. Before even beginning negotiations, you should make sure to research your potential buyer as much as you can. You want to make sure that you choose the right buyer and that it's someone you can trust with your company. A positive deal needs to work out for both of you, so it's important to make sure that you're in a good position.
