Business transfer

The business transfer agents for you

You may wonder what a business transfer agent is. Well, there’s no traditional definition, so don’t worry too much.

The long and short of it is that a business transfer agent helps owners buy and sell their businesses. If you’re looking to sell, we can be there to help you through every stage of the transaction.

It can be tough to find the right buyer, especially when you still have the business itself to run. 

And, after years of hard work building your business, the last thing you want is to undervalue yourself. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Similarly, if you’re looking to buy a new business, you’ll have to do substantial legwork to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible.

Buying a business

Although you may have some idea of what you’re looking for from a prospective business, there’s more to think about than just the premises itself.

The current business’s goodwill, reputation and financial position all factor into your decision. Having one of our business transfer agents by your side will ensure everything is taken into account.

Selling a business

As mentioned, if you’ve put years of hard work into building your business from scratch, you’ll want to make sure you get your money’s worth.

We can come in and help value your business, assets and all, to give you an accurate and up-to-date estimation of its market value. To us, it’s all about finding the right deal, so that’s exactly what we’ll try and help you get.

As with any high-value sale, there will be a lot of due diligence to carry out.

Some of the things we’ll look at in particular are:

  • reason for sale
  • company background
  • operational structure
  • annual turnover
  • growth potential.

As well as reasons for the sale and financial structure, we’ll also look at record keeping and bookkeeping. These reflect on professional and organisational standards, so it’s important everything is up to par.

Helping you get the most out of your business

Selling or buying a business can be a stressful process, so having a professional business transfer agent by your side can alleviate some of the hassles.
