Clean up financial records
Buyers will always want to take a look at your financials. It is thus very important that you make your bookkeeping spotless before listing your business.

Bring in a valuation expert
There are many ways of determining the value of a business. For example, when selling a small business you can price it anywhere from three to six times its cash flow. That is a good place to start but the high and low ends have a massive difference. That is why hiring a business valuation expert is the best way to go when determining the value of your business.
