Before commencing the process of selling, ensure you take into account the cost and exit fees so they can be factored into your negotiations with a prospective buyer.
The costs of selling can be considerable and include:
- business agents fees and advertising;
- landlords costs to approve the incoming franchisee and any make good costs;
- the franchisors transfer costs which may be a fixed fee (i.e. $5,000.00) or a percentage of the sale price;
- legal costs and don’t forget any CGT and GST issues may need to be considered.
By asking these questions at the earliest opportunity you may save yourself time, costs and disappointment.
