Selling Your Business? How Your Accountant Can Help

Posted by Melissa Hollis to Accounting, Business, Mergers & Acquisitions

Let’s say you’ve decided to sell your business. After determining that your company is fit to be offered for sale, your team is ready, and you’re mentally prepared for the months ahead, you have four primary objectives:

  1. Make as much profit as possible,
  2. as quickly as possible,
  3. while saving money and
  4. keeping the deal secure and problem-free.

On paper, it seems simple. Straightforward. In reality, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are anything but. From pricing your business and finding a buyer to conducting due diligence and drafting contracts, the road ahead is laden with obstacles of serious financial weight. As a seller, you’ll probably never engage in a larger deal at any other point over the course of your life.

Doing it yourself is not an option: you need to have the right accounting partner by your side. Take a look at the major facets of an accountant’s role during M&A to understand exactly why.

Success starts when you take charge of your finances.
