The phrase - 'how long is a piece of string?' comes to mind for this one..

But it’s a valid question that business owners will want to know before they embark on the path of selling or buying a business. In terms of the actual deal itself, it can take anywhere between 6 and 9 months. The length of time it takes varies depending on several factors. The size and complexity of the business, market conditions, the level of interest from potential buyers, and the readiness of both the seller. With the right preparation, an eye for the details and well structured business plan, business owners can increase the chance of a timely sale. Ultimately though, the time it takes is unique to each case.

There are plenty of websites out there that reduce valuing a business down to a few easy sums.

Valuing a business is not a simple process that can be summed up by a single number. Many factors come into play, including turnover, profit, debt levels, customer base, and demand, as well as external factors such as market conditions and industry trends. To obtain a realistic value for your business, it’s important to work with someone who understands your business inside and out. Our legal and corporate finance team can help assess your business, look beyond the surface-level numbers, and consider all the variables that influence its value. Whether you’re seeking investment, preparing for a sale, or need to know how to split the business between owners, we can provide the expertise you need to make informed decisions about the future of your business.
