You probably have good reasons for selling your identification jewelry business now, but that doesn't make the emotions you will experience any easier. We advise sellers to discuss their feelings with family members and close friends before, during and after the sale. But since it's important to remain as objective and rational as possible, we also recommend establishing a firm sale strategy and negotiation team to limit the impact of your personal feelings on the sale outcome.

Accountants lay the financial groundwork for a business sale. 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.

If you aren't sure what you need, put negotiations on hold until you gain a clearer understanding of your own deal parameters.
