Selling your business

Maximising your options

A business represents a lot of your time, money and passion, so selling your business can be one of the most important decisions you will make. Selling your business is also an incredibly complex transaction, so it can be beneficial to contact some independent financial advisers for expert guidance.

Our corporate finance team can help facilitate the process, guiding you through every stage of selling to a satisfactory conclusion. We’ve had years of experience helping clients sell their businesses, often for more than 5 times the earnings. Our sophisticated approach to company disposals includes forward planning of financial prospects and covering every eventuality to give you peace of mind. From our offices in Blackburn and Burnley, we work with our departments in wealth management, tax planning and sector specialists to give you fully informed advice.

Our expert team can advise you on any aspect of selling your business, or manage the entire process, which includes:

  • Valuing your business and preparing it for sale
  • Identifying the right buyers for your business
  • Negotiating the best price
  • Supporting you through the due diligence process
  • Project managing your sale through to completion
  • Advising you on how to pay the least amount of tax
  • Helping you to invest the proceeds for the future

We make sure that you’re in control throughout the process and that the ultimate aim - a successful and profitable sale - is achieved to your satisfaction. We believe in personal solutions. Our advisers will make sure to understand your specific goals so that we can work towards a sale that is right for you and your business.

As experienced professionals we can help sell your business on your behalf, representing your interests and specific needs. Whether you’re selling your business due to a change in lifestyle, to finance a new challenge, or to enjoy the fruits of your labour, we’ll promote your case in the best light to help you get the best deal at minimum cost. We work on a fixed fee basis so there are absolutely no hidden costs.

Take the first step towards realising your goals by contacting us. We’re always happy to discuss your plans for selling your business. You can phone us for advice or to arrange a free, exploratory meeting either at our Blackburn and Burnley offices or at a place of your convenience.
