What to Expect When Transitioning Your Business to a New Owner

An understanding of the transition process will go a long way to making selling your business smooth and amicable. While each business owner chases success in his or her own unique way, there are some things nearly all owners have in common. Hard work, determination, a vision of what could be, and the will to make it happen—these are the stock and trade of anyone who starts a business. There’s also another common factor that binds together all business owners: The need to someday transition your business to its next owner.

Selling Your Business Internally: Ensure Your Legacy Continues

Many business owners would prefer to see their business go to someone they know, such as key employees, partners, or family members in order to ensure that their legacy continues.

There are many benefits of selling your business internally that should not be overlooked:

  • Insiders already know the business, which means less disruption and a smoother transition.
  • Owners can negotiate a level of involvement that fits with their own personal goals.
  • Internal sales may be structured in a more tax-efficient manner that mini­mizes owner risk and keeps more of the proceeds in the seller’s pocket.
  • Loyal partners, employees, or family members are more likely to carry on the seller’s legacy than outside buyers would.
