If you are planning to sell your business within the next five years, now is the time to consider the Intermediary Services of Business Broker Services. It’s not too early!
We perform a certified market evaluation for all of our businesses. The evaluation tells us the best time to market the business and the best places to market it. You, the seller, will know well in advance of the sale the actual value you can expect to receive and which of the four different types of buyers is the one who will pay that price. (For definitions of the types of buyers, see How to Find Buyers.)
Getting pre-approval for financing, before putting your business on the market, helps us to know how much cash a buyer will need to have, in addition to financing from the lender, to purchase your company. There will be no need for seller financing, unless you wish to finance the sale for a tax advantage.
Sales through Business Broker Services could be structured in several ways: Capital Gains; Structures; Cash Sales. The structure of the final value could be cash and/or a structure that might have tax advantages to the seller and the buyer. Business Broker Services consults with the accountants of all sellers, prior to placing the business on the market, for a final accounting structure that favors the client.
This means minimized tax ramifications for you, the seller. If, for example, we have to sell a corporation, we will market it with the requirement that the buyer purchase the corporation.
