Frequently asked questions
Sellers and buyers often have inquiries regarding the sale of a business. Here are responses to some of the common questions we’ve encountered.
A business information memorandum is a meticulously crafted, all-encompassing marketing resource specifically crafted to facilitate the sale of your business. Within LINK’s Information Memorandums, you’ll find:
- Business overview
- Unique business highlights
- Operational matters
- Growth opportunities
- Historical financials
- Lease and location details
All Information Memorandums undergo seller approval prior to their utilization.
Before commencing the business marketing phase, it’s crucial to have the accurate information at your disposal to facilitate a successful business sale. Adequate preparation is a key factor in ensuring a seamless and prosperous transaction. LINK’s business brokers possess a deep understanding of the essential information required, and when you collaborate with a LINK broker, they will guide you comprehensively in preparing this information. Not only does well-organized information enhance the appeal of your business to potential buyers, but it also plays a significant role in establishing an accurate selling price during the formal valuation phase of the process.
Some of the items to prepare include:
- Staff details
- Copy of the lease
- Background on the business
- Profit & Loss accounts from past 2 –4 years
- Identify all items of personal and drawings nature
- Brochures or information on your product or service
- Copy of franchise agreement if a franchise business
- List of plant and equipment and any equipment leases
- Identify and quantify abnormal and/or non-recurring costs in accounts.
- Copies of internal accounting reports for year to date and/or GST returns if available.
Assessing the value of a business is an unquestionably vital aspect of the sales process. There are multiple methods to determine a company’s value, including tools like LINK’s VALU.LINK calculator. However, it’s important to recognize that each party involved may perceive the business’s worth differently. So, how can you ascertain the genuine value of your business?
The initial step involves gaining a realistic understanding of the price range at which your business is likely to sell. Setting a price that is either too high or too low can pose disadvantages for both you and potential buyers, needlessly complicating the sales process.
When you choose to work with a LINK business broker, they leverage their industry-specific expertise to assist you in determining a fair price based on comparable businesses within the market. In essence, the true value of your business is market-driven and ultimately depends on the amount a willing buyer is prepared to pay for it. This is known as a Market Appraisal, and it’s important to note that it is not an official valuation.
If you require an official valuation appraisal in written form, LINK can provide this service. Such an appraisal is invaluable in preparing your business for sale and establishing a relevant price range. This method is particularly advantageous in scenarios such as partner or management buyouts and family estate planning.
