Getting ready to buy or sell a business

Buying or selling a business calls for good preparation by both the vendor and the purchaser. The seller must ensure that the business is well positioned, show the value added by its goods and services, prove its market potential and highlight its team’s expertise. The buyer must also be ready and properly equipped to keep the business thriving.
