Preparing a business for sale

In order to facilitate a successful outcome for the sale of your business you need to be able to satisfy any due diligence appraisal a potential buyer may apply whilst considering the viability of your business.

 

A business will sell for a higher price and much quicker if detailed information is supplied when listing your business for sale. A professional presentation will enhance the sale process. Alltype Business Sales has the expertise to assist with all aspects when listing your business for sale.

  • Copy of the current lease agreement.
  • Two years Balance Sheets & Profit & Loss Statements
  • BAS statements covering the period since last Financial Report.
  • Inventory of Plant & Equipment
  • Staff roster and weekly gross wages bill
  • List of current Debtors and Creditors
  • An overview of the daily operations
  • Details of any contracts with suppliers or customers
  • The value of stock on hand
This list is indicative of some of the documentation buyers may request. If for some reason you are unable to provide key information we will endeavour to provide solutions on your behalf that may assist the buyer.
