After the March presentation on how planning can maximise your business sale value, we are excited to announce a special joint presentation from CABEL Partners about Preparing your business for Sale.

Join Tax Partner Kaylene Hubbard and Business Advisory Manager David Rosenthal and they will show you an end to end, best practice example, from both tax and business advisory perspectives on how to prepare your business for sale.

This is a must for all business owners and their advisers, and helps address those pressing questions that keep business owners up at night, such as:

• What am I going to sell?
• What can I sell the business for?
• When can I sell it?
• Who will purchase the business?
• How am I going to sell it?
• Does my current structure best facilitate a sale?

During the two hours, Ben walks through the six step model which he has used to build many of his own successful businesses and how it has helped hundreds of other business owners do the same.

“Many business owners struggle to understand and manage their businesses. By teaching business owners the four foundations of a business, they gain more control over their business. We help you drive your company forward and steer it in the right direction.  In my experience, I have found that you can’t manage what you don’t measure” – Ben Fewtrell.
