Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/04/2019 -- As one of the top-rated national mergers and acquisitions advisory firms in the country, Ashley Capital Group understands that the process of selling a business can be challenging and complicated. Now, they're offering a list of the most common questions that business owners ask about the process of selling their company, and how to address them.

One of the most important questions to begin with is understanding how long the process of selling a business can take. Although the answers may vary from business to business, the seller should expect it to take a year from beginning the search to closing the deal.

Additionally, there are several steps that need to be considered before finding and vetting a potential buyer. First, it's essential to reduce business debt and provide projections of the company's growth. To give buyers an idea of the company's expected success, sellers should provide balance sheets, cash flow statements, income statements and tax returns.

Following finding possible buyers, sellers should ensure they're serious about purchasing the business. This includes requesting that they sign a non-disclosure agreement, obtaining a financial summary, or looking at their credit score. This helps to weed out casual buyers.

Once the due diligence process begins, then sellers should be prepared to divulge the remaining pieces of financial information for their business. This includes payroll summaries, sales contracts, profit and loss statements, and more.

The length of this process can take many months once a buyer is found. There are numerous steps in between finding a buyer and closing the transaction, including due diligence, negotiations, and drafting the contracts.

Selling a business takes time, effort, and meticulous attention to detail. At Ashley Capital Group, they help their clients yield maximum value from selling their business and preparing for retirement and beyond.
