In addition, you don't want your competitors or suppliers to know about a potential sale.
Sales Process for Maine Businesses
On average it is a 6 - 10 month process to sell your company. It can be as short as a couple of months or can take a year or more. Pricing the business properly is important to not leave money on the table but also not pricing yourself out of the market. For more on this, you can read Busines Valuation factors.
As part of the confidential consultation, we'll review your last 3 years tax returns and a current year to date profit and loss statement. We'll want to identify all of your perks and benefits so that a potential buyer sees the total income that goes to the owner and not just the bottom line.
