Buying or selling a business

Buying or selling a business can be one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. If you’re a buyer, it’s critical that you fully understand what you’re buying and have a clear idea why you’re buying it. If you’re a seller, you need to be fully focused on getting the best possible price for your asset.

Buying a business.

Buying a business is not something that many people do routinely. It can be a dangerous exercise if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. We have had many people come to us over the years seeking our advice after they’ve already signed on the dotted line and all too often it ends in tears.

There is no doubt that getting detailed professional advice before you buy a business can add to the overall cost. But buying a business without proper advice is like jumping out of a plane without a parachute, you just know it’s going to end badly. 

When you come to us about buying a business, we go through a rigorous process designed to protect your interests.

Our starting point is always to ensure that you are crystal clear in your own mind why you are buying the business in the first place. We’ll help you ensure that you’re fully equipped to take on the challenge.

Once you’ve identified a potential purchase there are a range of issues that we can help you deal with. These include valuing the business, managing the contract, the due diligence process, financing the business and structuring the purchasing entity. We’ll also help you with your initial business plan to ensure your success after the purchase has been completed.

If you’re thinking of starting a search for a business, call us now and we’ll make sure you’re protected and informed right from the outset.

Selling a business

When you sell a house you clean the carpets, mow the lawn and make sure the place is tidy before buyers start looking at it. Selling a business involves a similar process. We advise business buyers all the time, so we know what they like to see and how they like to see it. It’s not a case of dressing the business up.

It’s a case of putting it in the most attractive condition for a buyer and ensuring that it is presented in a way that makes a buyer feel confident and comfortable in purchasing. That’s how you’ll get the best price.
