Buying / selling a business
For most owners there will come a time when selling the business, or buying another becomes necessary.
Our specialists can advise when you should start planning an exit strategy, what this involves in terms of grooming for sale, and explain precisely what potential buyers are looking for. They will also discuss various options, such as selling to your incumbent management team, or a trade sale.
For clients looking to buy a business, we can use our wide-ranging network of contacts to identify potential targets and carry out negotiations on your behalf, from first contact through to successful completion. We can also help you by advising on when not to acquire a business if we believe all the necessary conditions have not been properly met.
In addition, our tax specialists will investigate any taxation issues around the sale or purchase. We believe tax – which can sometimes be a deal-breaker – should be an integral part of the transaction and build it into the process from the start.
