Think Like a Buyer
Buyers are likely to have many questions for the business they are looking to buy, as well as specific criteria they are looking to fulfil, and documents they will require access to when carrying out due diligence.
To make sure your business is prepared, review all the necessary documentation and check whether you have easy access to the most up-to-date versions of your documents, and that they contain all the necessary attachments, schedules, and signatures.
If you were in the position of buying a business, think about what questions you would have, and what documents you would want to receive. If you can't answer any of the questions, you should think about how you can make changes and improvements to address this.
Being well-organised ahead of time reduces stress for you and reduces delays for the buyer that may be off-putting, ultimately putting you in the best position possible to move forward.
