How Do I Sell My Business in South Africa?

There are many ways that one can go about marketing your business for sale, finding a buyer, and finalising the deal. A business owner will be able to market and sell their own business or make use of the services of a business broker. Whether attempting to do this alone or making use of a broker, there are a few things you should have in place to ensure that you are able to answer any questions a potential buyer might have. Firstly, identify the reason for selling your business, as this will be one of the first questions asked. It is also important to get your financial records together, reports of your customer base, and other factors that are important to take into consideration when buying and running a business successfully. It is best practice to have a business valuation done so that you may sell your business for what it is truly worth.
