Much like summer is the perfect time to sell swimwear, every industry has their peak moments throughout the calendar year for optimal sales results. When it comes to selling your business, timing is everything. As a business owner looking to sell their business, there are many things to consider. One of the most important decision factors is when to sell your business; thinking about the time of year, the local economy, and timely events all need to be considered. These variables, and many more, can have a large effect on the end result of your sale (whether positive or negative).

Which leads to a very important questions: when is the right time to sell? If you think of these elements cyclically, you can see a pattern emerging. For many business owners, sales are often made at the End of Financial Year or the end of the calendar year. A sale at the End of Financial Year means clean books for the New Financial Year ahead. A sale at the end of the year means a fresh start after New Years Eve.

All business owners will eventually exit their business; either by selling, passing it on to family members, or quietly closing it down. But the decision to sell can be prompted by a number of reasons. Listed below are three reasons to consider when thinking about selling your business:

  1. Business Value
  2. Tired of Risk
  3. Time For Change
