Five Big Steps To A Successful Business Sale


Selling your business is one of the most important business decisions you may ever undertake.

Before calling a business broker you need to obtain current copies of the listed documents. This one single step is probably the second most important because it will tell you how to price your business realistically, so that the business will sell quickly and you get your asking price. The first most important step is to select Number One Business Brokers.

Document collection includes:

  • Profit and Loss Statements
  • Current Balance Sheet
  • Federal Tax Returns
  • Equipment Inventory
  • Current Accounts Receivable
  • Outstanding Loan Documents
  • Equipment Leases
  • Contracts
  • List of Current Supply Vendors
  • Personnel and Labor Contracts
  • List of all Creditors
  • Disclosure of Legal Actions
  • Bank Statement

All of the decisions you make to sell your business will be based upon the above documents and is the only way to establish 'Fair Market Value!'


The broker you select to become part of your marketing team must bring with them all the skills necessary to help you sell your business quickly, efficiently, and for the value you have built into it.
