Buying a Business

An acquisition can be one of the most effective ways to grow your business. Many of our clients come to us because they are keen to acquire, but don’t have the time or resources to research or manage the process whilst trying to run their business.

Our specialist team can help you throughout the entire process, from identifying potential targets to completing the deal.

Our team can help you to:

  • Develop an acquisition strategy
  • Research, identify and approach target businesses in the UK and overseas
  • Develop your offer for the target business
  • Identify funding requirements and subsequently secure finance
  • Carry out tax planning
  • Undertake Due Diligence
  • Project manage the deal to completion, working with your lawyer
