Specialists in
Acquisitions and

Many business owners will go through a business sale or purchase only once or twice in their lives, so working with professional advisers experienced in acquisitions, disposals and business valuations is a wise investment.

At Moore Thompson Chartered Accountants, our specialists will work with you to ensure that your purchase or disposal is thoroughly researched and carefully negotiated, to minimise risks and maximise outcomes. Our services include:

  • Screening potential targets for acquisition
  • Valuing assets for disposal
  • Preparing negotiating strategies
  • Raising funding
  • Finding suitable purchasers
  • Developing an integration plan
  • Optimising your tax position.

If you are buying a business, you want to be sure you have made the right decision and that there will be no unpleasant financial surprises once the acquisition is completed. We will carry out all the required due diligence, which includes examining:

  • The business’s internal structure and systems
  • Its overall financial position
  • The reliability of forecasts and estimates
  • Its tax position
  • The wider business environment in which it operates

We can also advise on structuring the sale agreement and on maximising the tax efficiency of your purchase.

If you are planning to sell your business, forward planning is crucial. By working with us at an early stage, we can help you to groom your business for sale in order to maximise its value.

Our early involvement can also help to reduce the number of issues raised as a result of the buyer’s due diligence, avoiding disruption to your everyday business operations and delays to the transaction being completed.

We can also assist in negotiations with your buyer and advise on minimising tax liabilities, to help you achieve outcomes that reflect the value of your hard work and investment.
