We believe in an ethical approach to our services which includes:
– An honest assessment of the chances of success in what clients are attempting
– A clear fee structure, with a guarantee that if clients are not completely happy with our services they pay only on the basis of value to them
– Personal service by senior and skilled staff
We can perform due diligence, meet with you and potential sellers and help you to structure the deal being offered. Tax advice features in what we will cover.
Forecasts, Budgets and Business Plans
We will sit with you to discuss where you are, your upcoming plans and assess the reasonableness of the plans when drafted. We will also perform what if analysis of the areas that we feel may still be open to question. A great tool to use to forward your business and keep it on track.
We have a list of people who we regularly use for our lending. Our approach is to match you specifically with the one who meets your needs and offers the best chance of success.
Shareholders, Partnerships & Incorporation Agreements
We will talk through all of the main considerations for this and put together a draft of the agreement for you to run past your legal advisers.
We have vast experience of examining records, questioning the underlying areas and getting to the heart of the issues that need dealing with.
We will perform a valuation of your business using various methods. We can also advise on how these valuations would change if you looked at different areas of the business.
We will look at what you want from a sale, prepare a sale pack and look at the tax consequences of the options available to you. We will also liaise with any potential buyer’s team.
