Selling your business

Make a confidential enquiry

You may be thinking ahead to your retirement or next venture; you may want to plan for a handover to family members or the management team; or you may be seeking private equity investment to expand the business or make an acquisition.

Whatever your goal, our award-winning team will guide you through the whole process, from ensuring your business is best placed to sell to getting the best price and completing the sale.

We can advise you on all stages of a transaction:

We will help you get your business in the best position for a successful sale. For the valuation, we use financial methodology but also take into account factors such as goodwill, intangible assets, the prospects for your particular sector and the general economic climate.

We will assess the likely value that could be achieved, whilst ensuring the business remains attractive to buyers.

We will first ensure we understand your preferences and suggest various deal structures which may be appropriate.

We will then draw up an Information Memorandum to present to potential purchasers, which may include private equity investors, third party buyers and MBO teams.

Tax can be a significant cost when selling a business.

We always work closely with our team of tax experts who can ensure that any tax implications of different sale options are identified and mitigated where possible.

We will not only be able to research potential buyers for your business, but will also assist you with deciding when and how best to approach them.

The transaction process can often be lengthy, but we will manage all aspects for you.

We will conduct negotiations on your behalf and liaise with all the relevant parties, so you are not overwhelmed and can continue to focus on running your business.

Why work with us?

Your goals and priorities are always our first concern. We will also maintain strict confidentiality to make certain no aspect of the transaction is jeopardised.

Our award-winning and friendly team has a wealth of corporate finance and tax experience, combining a personalised, responsive service with first-class knowledge and expertise. We will manage the whole transaction process for you, ensuring the best price and terms are achieved in line with your aims.
