Deciding to Sell

Small business owners rely on their trade for their livelihood, so selling up is big decision. Serious considerations need to be made, including how much you expect someone to pay for the business, and its actual value. Sometimes business owners have no choice but to sell, for example if they fall ill or have to move away. For others it’s more of a lifestyle choice, if they want to take a step back from the pressure of running a business or sell up and retire.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself before deciding to sell your garage: Is stock and equipment to be included in the sale?

How is the car industry doing at the moment?

Is turnover good for the past few years?

Is trade steady or increasing?

Would your business be worth more in a couple of years?

Finding the best time to sell your business is even more complex than finding the right time to sell a house!
