Selling a business after years of work can be very profitable. Many businesses are created with the hopes that they will one day be acquired by a larger firm. The process of selling your business can be complex, however. Federal and California laws over mergers, acquisitions, negotiations and securities exchanges may be important in the transaction.

How Do I Sell a Business?

Obviously, the initial step in selling a business is to either receive an offer or solicit one. In La Verne, purchase agents do more than simply find buyers. They also lend advice about which offers are worthwhile to consider. The purchaser might want financial records to be updated in accordance with California and Federal law. This might be required by law in some cases, and besides, it always helps in determining the correct value for the rights you are selling. As an agreement for the purchase is reached, usually a formal contract will be written. It is important to review such documents before they are signed so that all aspects of the agreement are presented properly.

What Will I Give Up in the Business?

The sale of a business is simply the transfer of a right known as "control". The party with control of a business directs its operations and may use the business property as it sees fit. A party seeking to purchase a La Verne business may not be concerned with all aspects of the company. In fact, purchasers are usually interested in acquiring control as cheaply as possible, and this may allow other rights, including the right to future earnings, to be apportioned or even retained by the seller. Because of the wide variety of different concerns buyers may have, negotiations are essential. Each party should voice their intents and concerns during this process.
