Selling a Business

If you are selling a business, we can work with you, as well as your accountant or financial adviser, to help achieve the best net return.

Usually the sale of the business needs to happen quickly, and with the least disruption to the daily operation of the business. We can assist you in identifying what needs to be done, negotiating the terms of the sale and closing the deal.

We can also help determine whether any intellectual property rights should be excluded from, or included in, the sale as well as determining if any protection needs to be created for those rights.


If the business is valuable to you then you certainly want to ensure that when you sell the business you receive the full value and you do not end up with any unexpected liabilities.  Our role is to assist you in achieving that result. 

Strictly speaking, an accountant is not permitted to advise, draw documents and effect the sale of your business.  Only a qualified lawyer can be involved in the process of drawing Contracts for clients.

This really depends on the size and complexity of your business.  We will need all the general details such as who is the owner of the business, the business name, the assets of the business, any special licenses or franchises and so on.  We can provide you with a more comprehensive list if you wish – just click here.
