When is the best time to sell?

Below are a few tips for consideration when you are thinking about selling your business.

Probably when the business is well established and generating good profits. Always allow a reasonable selling period – typically up to 6 months or even longer.

So what documentation is needed to sell your business?

  • Up to date financial statements, including copies of recent Business Activity Statements (BAS);
  • A list of equipment to pass with the business, and whether it is encumbered ( i.e. leased/ chattel mortgaged etc);
  • A copy of your current lease, or alternatively a proposed rental or sale price for your property;
  • If your business is located in Victoria, and its plant & good will figure is less than $450,000, you will also need – at the time of deposit or contract – a vendor’s statement (Sn 52)  about the performance of the business. NB This does not apply to licensed premises.
