Selling a Business?

Looking to sell your business? We're with you every step of the way.

Seeking an experienced accountants' help when thinking of selling a business is essential. We know the issues you'll face and recognise that starting early is the key to successful exit planning. At Stephenson Smart, if you're selling a business, our advisers work with you to ensure your long term goals are fulfilled. We specialise in helping business owners to achieve the highest value for their business and keep as much of the proceeds as possible by minimising any taxes.

Common questions regarding the sale of a business include:

  • Who should I sell my business to?
  • How much is my business worth?
  • How can I sell and preserve confidentiality?

We will work with you, focusing on issues such as retaining key management, improving financial performance, increasing profit and reducing your tax exposure.

We know how to conduct an effective sale and at the same time do this in such a way that confidentiality is maintained and access to commercially sensitive data regarding your business is controlled.

Once your business is ready for market, we can help you to identify potential buyers through our network of professional advisers. Through this network our team can also assist you in structuring the deal and supporting you during the process of negotiations.

Our advisers have the most impact when engaged early and can make a significant difference if planning starts at least two years before a planned sale. So, if you need an accountant's help for selling your business, get in touch with us today.
