FAQ’s regarding sales of the business
How much can I get for my business?
We don’t know. Yet. But after having analysed your Company as the first step after receiving the sales mandate from you, we will know what a realistic asking price for what you sell is. As part of our work, we’ll maximize the money you will put in your pocket, using among many others, the following tools:
- Planning the suitable tax structure for the sales (a high sales price does not help if the taxman takes it all).
- Separating certain assets from the company (for example selling real-estate separately)
- Capitalizing any intangible properties that are not in the balance
What is the biggest error when selling a business?
Tell at your local bar that you are selling your company.
The confidentiality is of utmost importance in any operation. If you announce publicly that you are for sale, your clients may get nervous and your competition will take the maximum benefit out of that. Your bank gets nervous. Your providers get nervous. Your employees get nervous. All that nervousness harms the business and decreases the value of the company in the eyes of the future buyers.
But hey, how can I sell the company if I cannot tell anyone that the company is on the market? Easily, by letting AvaBB sell the business for you. We give to potential buyers only blind profiles (they do not know who you are). Only when we have the strong confidentiality agreements in place, we’ll reveal your identity. We also have lots of international investors buying Spanish companies. With them, your secret safer, your local competition does not have to know.
