Selling or closing a business is a unique time for business owners. It could mean a big payout and significant transition for the business owner, employees and customers.

1. Is your business in good standing?
    -Have you managed your legal documents properly, maintained insurance and
     business licenses?
    -Consider evaluating the current status of your business filings as part of your next steps in
     selling or closing your business.

   -What goodwill value do you have in your business?
   -What is your customer base and value of partners?

3. Is this the right time and will you get the right price?
   -Can you pay outstanding debt, if any?
