Selling a virtual receptionist business? When should you start planning?

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

If you are selling a virtual receptionist company, you may well be wondering about timing, and how far in advance you should ideally start planning your sale.

The simple truth is the more time you allow yourself, the better. Some people may even find it takes up to a good couple of years to prepare effectively.

There may be a number of things you need to do to prepare your business for sale, and these might include a change in business strategy, for example, which would maximise your profits in the short-term.

You may also want to put in place tax-efficient strategies, perhaps by making pension fund contributions, so that you realise the full potential of your investment, and this can also take time.

Equally, if you are selling a virtual receptionist company because you are retiring, there may well be other issues to address.

General business conditions can also have an impact, from the level of interest rates to the pace of economic growth. How your individual business is performing may well be another factor to take into account. If your performance is strong, for example, but you anticipate future issues or challenges, it could be a very good time to sell.

However, despite all these factors to take into account when planning the sale of your business, you can spend far less time grooming and preparing your company if you talk to us first.

At CSnotepad we provide a range of business telephone answering services, and we’re interested in buying virtual receptionist companies of all sizes.

That means we’re keen to hear from anyone who is thinking about selling their virtual receptionist business, or client base; regardless of circumstances or whether you are running in the red or making a healthy profit, whether you have a few clients or hundreds of customers.

We treat all queries about business sales in strict confidence, and sign non-disclosure agreements to give you extra protection.

Remember, we’ll buy your whole business or just your client base or list, so talk to us before you do anything else.
