How To Prepare Your Company For Sale
It’s time to get your paper work prepped! To present your business to a potential buyer, you’ll need to get your house keeping in order including P&Ls (profit and loss statements) from the last 3 years, up to date inventory and asset registers, current employee/contractor/client/lease contracts and more. Your business broker will advise you on what’s needed and assist where we can, for example liaising with your accountant if required.

Prepare Marketing: How To Find a Buyer For Your Business
Where to advertise your business for sale and how the sale is packaged and presented for high exposure is a critical part of the journey of selling a business. We work with top ranked websites selling businesses, ensuring your business is marketed to a large network of buyers. Buyers are vetted to ensure they are genuine and we consider their financial capacity, timing and motivation.
SOT Business Brokers will explore your immediate networks including competitors, customers, employees and industry professionals. Want to sell your business but keep it private? No sweat.
We maintain strict confidentiality so your competitors, suppliers and employees are none the wiser. All interested buyers are pre-screened and execute a Confidentiality Agreement before receiving any sensitive business information. We control the communication every step of the way to ensure discretion is maintained whilst selling your company.
Once a buyer has been vetted and is ready to present an offer, we’ll get an EOI or ‘expression of interest’ to you.
