Succession Planning: How To Sell Your Business

Succession Planning: How To Sell Your Business

As a business owner, you have probably given considerable thought to the success of your company. But what will happen to it when you retire or decide to sell your business?

Planning the transfer of your business to someone else requires more than putting out a For Sale sign. Now might be the time to get serious about creating a succession plan that works for you, your employees, your business and your community.

If you are currently thinking of selling your business, a good succession plan and/or exit strategy can help the transfer of your business go smoothly and help prevent future service disruptions. It can also help maximize your business’ value and tax strategies.

The Basin Business Advisor Program’s Succession Planning: How to Sell Your Business workshop is designed to help business owners explore options and to answer questions.

We will review:

  • preparing your business for sale;
  • identifying potential buyers;
  • marketing your business;
  • legal and financial accounting ramifications and support required; and
  • common business valuation techniques.
