If you're looking to sell your business then you'll want to get the best price you can, and this may take you some time and effort to prepare. When selling your business there are several stages that need to be completed in order to achieve a successful outcome. Typical steps include:


• Valuing your business.

• Taking steps to increase its value.

• Taking early tax advice to minimise the tax burden

• Identifying potential buyers.

• Marketing your business.

• Meeting and negotiating with potential buyers.

• Completing legal due diligence with the buyer.

• Finalising the sale agreement and transferring ownership.


How can Marshall Smalley Accountants help you?

In order to maximise the value of your business, we can work together prior to the sale to get your business into shape. This could include:


  • Cutting costs.
  • Reducing debts.
  • Reducing excess.
  • Getting your finances in order. 

Potential buyers are also likely to require detailed financial information, including audited accounts and forecasts before they will consider making an offer.

We can help you make the whole sales process smoother by preparing this information in advance.
