Average Preparation Time

Preparing a loose leaf binders wholesale and manufacturers business sale takes time. Since buyers prefer to see evidence of future cash flow, you'll want to to strategically lock in cash flows and increase profits before you list the business.

Working with a Professional Accountant

Accountants come into play at several stages of the sale process. From a seller perspective, an accountant can offer personal financial assistance, especially when it comes to handling the disposition of sale proceeds. Brokers often advise their clients to have an accountant perform an audit of the business prior to sale. With seller financing becoming common, professional accountants are playing a more central role in negotiations and buyer qualification.

Leveraging Seller Concessions

It's becoming more difficult to sell a loose leaf binders wholesale and manufacturers business without considering seller concessions. The most common seller concession is seller financing. With entrepreneurs struggling to secure capital, you may be the buyer's only source of financing.
