Business Details

Selling a business is one of life's true challenges. Meeting the market is a fine sentiment but what is the market for a particular business and who can you rely on to give you honest advice? If there is a 'challenge' it has to be to decide whether to sell your business yourself or to select a broker to help you. Naturally, there are pros and cons to both sides of this dilemma.

Selling by yourself invariably proves difficult for most people. You will need to blend the skills of an accountant, valuer, advertising executive, salesperson, networker, confidentiality agent, hardnosed negotiator, great closer, lawyer while still running your business. Bear in mind it takes an average of around six months for a business to sell, so you'll also need patience and the ability to stay emotionally detached from the sale of your business. Macquarie Commercial & Business Sales Pty. Ltd. has the resources and national experience to deliver the range of skills necessary to complete your sale.

What are these resources and skills?

  1. Proper evaluation to establish a sale price. This requires extensive experience with all types of businesses.
  2. Establish Capital Gains Tax eligibility. How easy is it to understand the Tax Act?.
  3. Evaluate plant and equipment, stock at value, fixtures and fittings plus goodwill to set fair market value. You will need to be careful here, as this could affect any tax outcomes.
  4. Establish the best possible marketing exposure and budget. With technology changing so rapidly it's also worthwhile to explore new and modern avenues to maximise the exposure of your business.

This all comes under the broad heading of marketing... but the golden rule of... if you don't tell, You don't sell... certainly applies.
