When to start preparing?
The level of preparation required will differ for every business but it should start early – at least 12 to 18 months before a sale process is ideal to ensure there is sufficient time to rectify any potential deal issues and provide the greatest opportunity to maximise sale value. The extent to which some elements of the business can be “professionalised” in this timeframe can impact the level of confidence potential buyers will have in the numbers and business management generally; this is always positive to achieve the best deal outcome for a seller.
