A business is normally worth the amount a buyer is willing to pay. However, in most sectors there is a "going rate range" specific to that business sector. There are factors that may affect whether the multiple achieved is nearer the top end of the range or falls to the lower end of the range. Issues such as the condition of the business, or the number of similar business available on the market all affect the final price. This is where specialist advice is required.

Looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself.

This normally depends on the urgency of both the seller and buyer. When selling we aim to have your business sold within 32 weeks from you signing up with Henley Business. When buying you can expect the whole process to take from anything from six weeks up to six months.
