Five Questions for You to Answer…
- Are you ready to harvest the fruits of the Pest Control Company you’ve work so hard to create?
- Are you ready for a new path but don’t know where to start in terms of how the sale of a business works and if you should try it yourself or consult a team of experts?
- Are you confused by the tax ramifications of a sale and afraid that you may pay more to Uncle Sam than if you structured a deal to obtain the best after-tax maximum value for your business?
- Are you afraid that perhaps after the sale you may be tied to potential legal liability that may cost you money because your agreements were not written with your best interest in mind?
- Would it be better to put together a team of advisors who have specific PCO industry experience and knowledge of relevant vs. non-relevant factors in obtaining the best deal value for you?
If you answer “YES” to any of these questions, then our capabilities will be meaningful to you as you embark on a journey through the complicated maze of tax, legal and management issues associated with selling a business.
