  • Advising on your financing options – Discussing the various options available to you and assisting with your negotiations.
  • Purchase support – Extracting warranties from the vendor on any points of query and negotiating a fair purchase price.
  • Due diligence – Assessing and providing you with a detailed report on the financial, and business risks associated with your potential acquisition, ensuring safeguards are in place.
  • Management buyout support – We have experience assisting management buy outs from the initial stages to completion.
  • Advising on the structuring and integration – If the target business is to be moved into a group structure we can review on the tax and accounting implications and provide advice to assist with the integration.
