9 Steps Business Selling Guide
We sell businesses better. Our experienced brokers guide you through our proven nine key steps.
Business Value Appraisal
Naturally, you want the maximum price for your business. But setting an asking price too high could scare away potential buyers. While pricing too low means a less financial reward for your hard work, there are many ways to value a business. Using a combination of these will usually provide the most realistic price band. The methodology must be accurate, appropriate for your type of business and stand up to expert scrutiny. Every business is unique, making it vital to deal with people who have proven experience in establishing true market value.
For example, minimising costs and increasing annual profit by as little as $5,000 could add $20,000 to the sale price. We can help you recast your profit and loss (P&L) to determine your true discretionary earnings..
An Information Memorandum (IM) is a comprehensive document that gives a detailed overview of the business.
It must be crafted to ensure it is accurate and represents your business honestly while adhering to numerous legal requirements and regulations. This includes disclosing anything that may hurt the ongoing profitability of your business. Click here for a sample IM
*Note that the business advertised in the sample IM is not a real business. It was created by us to be used as a sample only.
It takes more than setting the right price to find the ideal buyer. Having access to a large database of qualified buyers in your sector means greater competition and a better sale price.
As independent professionals, LINK brokers can discreetly approach buyers we believe might be interested, without divulging information that identifies your business.
LINK is one of the largest business sales marketers
and advertisers in Australasia.
Through decades of experience and measurement, we know how to create effective marketing campaigns. Ads, brochures, web, social media and other communications are carefully planned and executed to attract buyers without identifying your business.
We know that not every enquiry about a business for sale is from a genuine potential buyer. But qualifying every buyer is often a surprisingly time-consuming and difficult process.
Acting as an independent third party, LINK brokers can maintain confidentiality until all potential buyers have been vetted and qualified.
Sale and Purchase Agreement
After a potential buyer has reviewed the IM and expressed interest, they’ll have more questions and will usually ask for further information or documents.
A LINK broker coordinates this process, by liaising with the business owner or their financial/legal teams to negotiate a conditional Sale and Purchase Agreement without yet supplying sensitive details.
Signing the Sale and Purchase Agreement doesn't necessarily mean the business is sold.
Most buyers will want to verify your information during a due diligence period.
They'll also need to review information previously withheld due to commercial sensitivity. This process generally takes 5 to 15 working days, although for more complex businesses, it can be up to 90 days or more.
Once all the conditions in the agreement have been satisfied, the business is declared unconditional, Solicitors will finalise all legal documents, a final stocktake will be carried out and the sale will be settled.
The seller usually assists in the business for an agreed period post-sale, to ensure there's a smooth transition.

-Import Business Owner-
“I recently used Serdar to sell my business and I was delighted with both the process and the result. Serdar was quick to grasp the essential nature of the business and market it in a positive yet accurate way.
-Emily and Logan-
"We recently purchased a business from Serdar Kabul and I am exceptionally grateful to Serdar for the opportunity he has given us, as well as his on-going support and encouragement.
He has been open, honest and professional in all his communications with us.
I would have no hesitation in purchasing another business from Serdar, contracting him to sell an existing business or recommending him to others, it really has been a pleasure dealing with him."
"After making the decision to take my business to market, I searched for active business brokers who came across as having a positive and proactive approach to marketing the businesses they had listed. I then checked the companies they worked for to see what type of reputation they held in the market. After meeting with the shortlisted Brokers, I chose Serdar from Link business brokers.
Serdar is thorough, he listens, he works with active buyers, and he doesn't rest on his laurels. At a time when the market was full steam ahead, and the business could have sold itself, Serdar continued to work to promote the business, screen potential buyers and push to get offers on the table. Serdar was active right through the settlement process and also followed up through the transition process.
I would highly recommend any owner looking to list their business speak to Serdar before deciding on who to list with.”
“ We recently used Serdar to sell our business and was very pleased with the way he marketed our company
and how the sale process was handled.
We initially had a meeting with Serdar over 2 years ago when I was contemplating selling our business and I had several discussions with him around that time.
I decided to wait and sell the business later, and I was impressed at Serdar's attitude of staying connected occasionally and not being pushy.
When the time came to sell the business I contacted Serdar and he prepared and recommended some options for a marketing campaign.
The business was advertised in late March and very quickly 5 meetings were arranged with potential buyers.
We had offers from 4 of those meetings and the company was sold at Easter.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Serdar to market your business”
"Serdar was instrumental in selling my business, in a very difficult market.
It is notorious for business owners on Waiheke Island to be unable to find buyers for their businesses, however Serdar found a number, leading to multiple offers.
Without him, I would probably still be sitting at my office chair, rather than travelling around South America. Thanks again Serdar."
“I first met Serdar in March 2018 to discuss purchasing an Importing & Distributing business. Through the Sales process I found him to be honest, very approachable and genuine, a very nice person.
Subsequent to the purchase, he has continued to offer support and avail himself to discuss any issues that have arisen which has been very much appreciated.”
