Maintaining Objectivity

Emotions run high during the sale of a constables business. Your estimate of your company's worth is probably skewed by your emotions and your close, personal connection to the business. Although it may be a hard pill to swallow, you need to find a way to introduce objectivity into your sale. Consider recruiting a team of objective professionals to help manage your expectations as you prepare and negotiate the sale of your business.

Buyer Concessions

Most constables business sellers realize they will need to offer concessions to sell their businesses.

Often, buyer concessions represent financial incentives that the seller receives in exchange for providing a non-cash benefit (e.g. training, financing, etc.. Asset exclusions, retained ownership shares and long-term contracts with another of the seller's companies can also be leveraged to extract concessions from buyers.

Legal Considerations

It pays to invest in first-rate legal counsel when you sell a constables business. Competent legal counsel ensures that the sale documents are in proper order. Furthermore, a good lawyers provides the counsel necessary to navigate the tax and liability issues that surround a business sale. In some cases, an attorney may also provide assistance in securing long-term leases or vendor contracts to make your constables business more attractive to buyers. If you don't know an attorney with experience in the business-for-sale market, ask your broker for a referral.
