If you wish to buy a business then expert financial advice is critical to avoiding costly mistakes.

Business valuation

Determining the value of a business is always very subjective and you will find that different accountants will often produce wildly different valuations of the same business.

We will clearly explain the components of the valuation and how different factors are taken into account. This will help you to make a truly informed judgement on how much the business is really worth.

Heads of Terms

We will help you to produce a one or two page “Heads of Terms” agreement before instructing solicitors. This will avoid unnecessary disagreements with the vendors later in the process.

Financial due diligence

The statutory and management accounts that describe the current position of the business may well be misleading. We can carry out a robust due diligence review of the financial position of the business giving you assurance that you are being presented with a reliable picture.

Raising finance

We can advise you on how to raise the finance and we can prepare cash flow forecasts in the professional format that the banks require.
