Dear Friends,

 

 

We are constantly bemused when we get practitioners coming to us who have seemingly all of a sudden decided that they want to sell. When we advise clients to consider selling, we always tell them that it is a careful process and the decision should take a period of time.

 

Today the burning question is: Why do vendors procrastinate?

 

We are constantly having discussions with POTENTIAL vendors who can’t seem to make up their minds whether or not to sell.

 

Now we know that your practice is unique as are you 

 

 

We are constantly being asked ‘how much is my/our practice worth?’ Of course, the answer is ‘how much a buyer is prepared to pay’. Yet, this is a cop out answer!

 

Can you all remember the different ways we were taught to value businesses? Net Assets, Goodwill as a function of so many years profit etc. The list goes on and on.

 

One of the things that has baffled many of us over the years, is the ‘x’ factor when it comes to success in business.

 

I know you will and certainly we have had the chance to get to know a vast number of business owners. Some good, some bad, some succeeded, some didn’t.

 

We are coming across an increasing NUMBER of genuine purchasers, who are willing/keen to take over a turn key business as of 31/3/18.

 

All purchasers have been pre-qualified to ensure there is no time wasting!!

 

No issues with price and willing to ensure a smooth transition on a going concern!

Good afternoon Practitioners,

 

In retirement one has plenty of time to think about life in general (particularly when I am not playing golf!!) and one of the constants that I ponder is why we, as a profession, seem so reluctant to let the reins go??

 

I have spoken to hundreds of practitioners, from one man bands to partners in multinational practices, and the constant that I came across was this reluctance to go!!
