Starting or Ceasing Business



Business Acquisitions

There are many scenarios in which you might wish to attain a business enterprise. Whatever the situation, we are able to take the stress out and maximise the opportunity for you.

Whether you are considering buying a business or merging with another business, we have the experience and the expertise you need. We ask the right questions, and find the necessary answers. Are you getting a good deal? Is the business right for you? Can you afford it? Have all avenues for future growth been investigated?

The services we provide incorporate every stage of the process - from identifying potential acquisitions, through to the negotiations of the commercial elements of the transaction, through to forecasting the future of the business.

This can include:
  • A review of your goals and objectives
  • Due diligence services
  • Preparation of cash flow projections
  • Advice on potential pitfalls and rewards involved in a merger
  • Assistance with purchase negotiations
  • Advice on financing
  • Assistance with preparation of a business plan
Calling on the skills of our professional team means you will be far less likely to purchase an unsuitable business. Let us show you how our experience can assist, and provide you with the great opportunity a business acquisition can be.



Business Sale

Selling a business can be a complex and emotional time. The tasks involved in selling a business can seem particularly arduous. We are able to assist you to plan the timing of the sale, to minimise the tax effect while also maximising the return of your business sale.

Our friendly and professional team will work through the processes with you to:
  • Prepare sale documents
  • Assist with due diligence enquiries
  • Attend to de-registrations
  • Complete structure changes



Business Planning

To ensure the long-term success of your business, it is critical to establish a well-designed succession plan. Coordinating the transition of your business to your successors can be an arduous process. However, with our years of experience we can address the complex issues of business continuation, removing the stress from your shoulders.
