Selling a company


You can sell the established (running) company to other persons. In order to do that, you should be able to rprove the fact that your company does not have any hidden liabilities. You have different options to sell your company.  You can do it yourself or hire a company to do it for you. If you do it yourself, you can communicate it publicly through different business and branch media. Keep in mind that selling your business is a delicate piece of information and you might want to do it more discretely. You might consider hiring a specialized company to help you with your sale. The process of selling your company is complicated and can take a long time. It requires at least the following steps:

  • Preparation of the company for sale
  • Valuation of the company
  • Advertisement of selling the company
  • Buyer’s qualifications
  • Inspection of the company
  • Negotiations
  • Detailed check-up
  • Signing a sale/purchase contract

The selling process is completed when you and the buyer sign a sale/purchase contract. A transferral needs to be made and gain the decision of the court.
