Selling your business

A business groomed for sale is worth considerably more. It can take up to two years to groom a business for sale, so advance planning is essential. Our award winning team recommends how you can improve the exit value of your business by focusing on the key issues affecting your success, such as management, financial, legal and taxation. We’ll support incoming and exiting shareholders by helping with the valuation of their holdings and assisting in the negotiation of the terms of entry or exit.

We market your business to interested parties, helping you identify potential buyers. We contact them on your behalf, prepare your sales memorandum, negotiate the sale price and help you close the deal successfully.
