Every business will at some time during its life arrive at the time when it needs to change ownership. It may be from the founder of the business to his children. Other times it may be to an employee or a group of employees. Most often the business is sold to a total stranger.

There are many difficult decisions that face a business owner when they have decided to sell their business:

  • How do I value and price the business?
  • How do I find a qualified buyer?
  • How do I offer the company for sale without premature release of sensitive and confidential information?
  • What and when do I tell the employees about the sale?
  • What will the income tax impact be on the proceeds?
  • What are the steps involved in properly presenting the business?
  • What information will be needed to get the maximum return?
  • Will accounting, legal, and brokerage fees eat up a large percentage of the sale price?
  • How much will outside professional help really be needed?

Murphy Business understands the business transfer process. With over 400 closing each year, we are experienced in getting you through the process and to the closing table. Murphy will help the seller with the answers to all these questions. We will work with you through every step in the process.
