Do you know that only 10-20% of small businesses on the market are sold. The main reason for such poor results is that businesses come to the market unprepared. Objectives while running a business and selling one are quite different, sometimes opposite.

Thus, if you decided to sell, it’s time to make some changes and prepare it for sale.

High income doesn't always translate to highER business price

Value is the one that determines the price. In some instances business preparation allowed to double the purchase price, in others it made difference between selling and not selling the business.

The best way to prepare your business for sale is to start it early, preferably 1-3 years in advance. At that time it’s good to find a good business broker and consult how to increase your business value within remaining time period.
