Are You Thinking Of Selling Or Aquiring A Business?

The process of buying or selling a business is often far more emotionally demanding, stressful and time-consuming than many people realise.

The vendor of a business needs to keep running the business effectively throughout the lengthy sales process, whilst also responding to purchasers’ (and their advisers’) detailed queries. A purchaser on the other hand will often be in full-time employment (or running their own business) whilst trying to acquire the new business, and thus also has to juggle time.

The key to sanity for you during this process will be to ensure that you have an experienced adviser on board who can shoulder much of the administrative burden of such a complicated transaction.

The following are just a few of the questions that will be raised in the early stages of a decision to buy/sell a business.

  • What value should be put on the business?
  • How should a deal be financed?
  • How can the deal be financed?
  • How do I find a buyer / business to acquire?
  • What should be bought/sold – the assets & liabilities or the shares?
  • What are the tax consequences?
  • What due diligence is required?

At Dodd & Co we have a specialist team who provide advice and ‘handhold’ you through the whole transaction process so that you can continue concentrating on your day-to-day business activities.

If you are thinking of buying or selling a business then please speak to Martin Ward who will be pleased to meet with you and discuss how we can help you to optimise any proposed deal.

Contact Martin Ward for further information.
