March 05, 2021

selling my businessOwning a business is something that many people wish for. There are people who start and sell a business for the purpose of making profits. Others reach a point where they can no longer run the business and decide to sell it.

However, selling a business is not that easy. One of the first things you will want to do before initiating the process is to hire a good Palm Harbor business attorney. Doing so will prevent you from undervaluing the business or staying long before selling your business.

Below are some of the steps you should consider when selling a business:

  1. Decide on the price

When quoting the price of your business, try to be as realistic as possible. Don’t price it too high or too low. If you are not sure as to how much your business is worth, you can consult an accountant or any Palm harbor business lawyer.

  1. Know the tax consequences

Taxes can eat up a huge chunk of the money you receive from the sale of your business. That’s why it is important to understand the tax implications before commencing the sale process. A business attorney in Palm Harbor can help you in determining how much tax you are likely to pay.

  1. Look for potential buyers

If your business is already established, then the chances of selling it fast are very high. All you have to do is approach prospective and genuine buyers. Try to approach as many people as possible to increase your chances of making a good profit.

  1. Negotiate the deal and sign the contract

After finding a buyer, the next step is to agree on the price and seal the deal by signing a contract. Ensure your business lawyer in Palm Harbor is present while signing the contract.

In general, there are several factors that will determine how long it will take to sell your business. The law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates is always open to help anyone who wants to sell their business.
