How to Buy or Sell a Business 

There are many pitfalls in both buying or selling a small business. Accordingly, you should seek professional assistance in doing either. Although our Chapter offers this workshop on "Buying and Selling a Business", we strongly recommend that you also seek the help of a SCORE Counselor.

A beginnig step is identifying and gathering all the information that is needed to make a proper valuation of the business possible. Financials, tax returns, agreements, leases, litigation, sales or purchase contracts, inventory status, equipment condition and many, many more items are needed to effectively determine whether the business is worthy of buying or to prove it is worthy of selling.

Topics Covered:

  • Information that a buyer must know
  • "Skeletons" the buyer must identify
  • The seller's presentation
  • Tax implications to both buyer & seller
  • How to value a business
  • Things that can "kill" a buy-sell deal
  • Identify the advisors either party needs
