Selling your Business

It may be that your business is ready to sell, however, we sometimes identify areas where we can advise on actions which will maximise value for you.

Selling a business can appear to be a daunting experience. Your business is probably your most valuable asset. Appointing a professional Agent is the first step towards achieving the result you require.

We will give you a realistic market appraisal in todays market carried out by an experienced Partner or Associate rather than a sales person targeted to gain the maximum number of instructions. We are highly experienced in this area and will only give an honest opinion.

A market appraisal involves various factors which can include the history of the business, current turnover and profit, the overall financial position including the balance sheet in respect of a share sale, value of assets/property, and lease terms in the case of leaseholds.

Other considerations are intangible assets, which reflect the business or company’s reputation including goodwill, customer relationships and contacts, intellectual property, etc. The asking price may well be a benchmark or starting point for the negotiations.

We would then tailor a marketing campaign designed to get your business in front of a large number of serious prospective purchasers. All initial enquiries will be fielded and qualified and we will mediate in the negotiations that are an inevitable part of selling any business.

Marketing can be confidential or full exposure, we will discuss the pros and cons of either approach with you and it will be your decision.

We will never have 100’s of businesses on our books, only what we consider to be a manageable number to whom we can offer a personal service.



The confidentiality of our clients is paramount. All viewings are strictly by appointment. You can rest assured that the sale of your business will be handled sensitively and with the utmost confidentiality.

Very competitive fees are offered to our clients for a variety of flexible marketing packages.

We recognise that you have invested time and money in your business and whatever your reasons for selling you want to realise the highest realistic possible value.
