Corporate Finance - Selling a Business

Adding commercial value to your transaction

Business disposals – selling a Business

Over the past 12 months we have worked on assignments for companies across the UK and with international businesses. We have demonstrated our expertise in advising clients in buying and selling businesses, raising finance, carrying out financial due diligence and dealing with complex tax matters arising on transactions.

Our trusted approach

For many, the sale of a business is the culmination of a lifetime’s work. More often than not, this will be a once in a lifetime transaction – with only one opportunity to get it right and achieve the maximum reward.

Our role in the disposal process is to manage the transaction on your behalf so that the best possible terms are achieved for you. We have a considerable amount of research material and contacts available to us and can assist in the identification of an appropriate buyer. We will present your business in a professional manner and negotiate the best price and terms for you. We provide proactive advice on commercial and tax issues.

We recognise that every assignment is different and by adopting an approach tailored to the specific needs of each individual client we are able to add commercial value to your transaction. With a wealth of practical experience and technical skills we will work with you every step of the way to successfully complete the transaction.

Additionally, through our HLB International network we have access to corporate finance opportunities and high quality corporate finance advice in more than 100 countries.
