How does a professional advisor, such as a banker, lawyer, accountant, or business broker advise their client when the business financials consist of a by I Want This\\">check book and a box of receipts? Or the situation where the business owner has one cash system (because that one is for unrecorded cash), or the owner runs all personal shopping through the business, or takes a family of 12 on a Caribbean vacation son the business, or doesn’t use an accountant or bookkeeper at all?
The company’s tax return doesn’t resemble (in the slightest) the profit and loss statements and balance sheets. The examples of poor record keeping and tax dodges that we see go on and on. We Demand that all our Buyers conduct full diligence before moving to contract. Usually the Broker or our attorney we have on staff hold an earnest moneys deposit with an accepted offer in writing contingent to proof of sales. WE DEMAND THAT SO WE CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT!
Let’s focus on the value of the business based on quality of financial statements for this purpose. As mentioned above, advisors are hard pressed to advise a client that has poor financials. We need to see revenue and margin trends, the relevant expenses, cash flow, sales by customer, liquidity, and much more. We need to know the true picture to know how the business compares to similar businesses in the industry, to recognize trouble spots, to find opportunities, to budget, and to plan an eventual exit and a decent offer.
The Exit: When a business is entertaining a potential buyer, will the buyer see a true picture of the business immediately or will they have to dig for the truth? The more they have to dig, the less trust they will have in the management (and the value of the business just went down). Will the buyer see a concerted effort to avoid paying taxes? What else might the seller be hiding? Can the buyer trust the seller (and the value of the business just went down)?
In most situations the buyer needs a bank to fund an acquisition. Banks don’t trust anything other than the tax return (and for good reason). You can see where this is going, can’t you? The bank doesn’t like the financials because they don’t match the tax returns, the tax returns don’t show enough cash flow so they tell the buyer that he is paying too much for the business (and the value of the business just got reduced again!).
Having accurate financial statements is not difficult, but it does take some focus and action. If you need help with getting your books in order,
