Many business owners find themselves in a position where they either want or need to sell their business. Whatever the reason behind this decision, having a professional accountant that can advise on the best course of action is essential. From devising a strategic exit plan to vetting potential buyers, selling a business is far more complex and multi-layered than simply accepting money in change for ownership.
Now that you have made the decision that you want to sell your business, getting the best price for the company will no doubt be your priority. Here at Lime Advisory, our team can put pillars in place to ensure you receive the most favourable figure whilst limiting the stress of conducting such a transaction.
By creating a simple step-by-step process, we ensure all i's are dotted and all t’s are crossed, leaving you with the deal you want executed in a timeframe that suits you. This is not only in the interest of you, the seller, but the business as a whole, causing minimal disruption as a result.
We break the process down into stages, and work with you every step of the way:
Here at Lime Advisory, we understand that every business is unique, with no two companies operating in the same way. This is why when it comes to valuing a business, we do not use a blanket approach, considering a huge variety of factors that will have a bearing of the business’ valuation. By assessing these factors individually, we ensure we arrive at an accurate price. By taking into account all tangible and intangible assets, as well as the company's position in the market, scope for growth and threats to growth, we gain the full picture.
In addition to using long-standing valuation models, our team will draw on their decades of experience supporting business in various fields and sectors, allowing them to create impartial valuations quickly and with minimal fuss.
If there is a dispute regarding a valuation, we can work with our experienced forensic accounting team to reach a mutually beneficial resolution.
Whether you are using another accountant and require a valuation to support a sale/purchase, or you are looking for an established accountancy firm to guide you through a large financial project, our highly esteemed team is here to help.
