To prepare your practice for sale:

- 3 years of tax returns for the practice
- 3 years of Profit and Loss (P&Ls) statements for the practice

When you have this information gathered for Carl, he will review it in detail and meet with his team to generate some initial questions for you in order to best understand and assess your practice. A time will then be set to meet with and interview you about your practice. Once the interview is complete, Carl will help you make the best decision about your practice and show you how the CBI TEAM can best help you.
