Our Business Assessment is a great tool to assist business owners who are seriously thinking about selling their business. It is an essential step to assist business owner’s in determining the realistic market price range for their business. They can then make an informed decision about where to from here.
Realistic Market Appraisal Reports (“RMA”)
Our RMA’s assist business owners who might not be considering selling but are wanting to gain a better understanding of what their business might be worth in the current market for other reasons. Our detailed and informative report is an essential step to assist business owner’s in determining the realistic market price range for their business. They can then make an informed decision about where to from here. Because our RMA provides a realistic market price range our clients have also used them as a price guide for future planning, employee buy-ins, estate planning purposes, sales to a family member and just because they want to understand what their business might be worth in the current market. Accountants often refer their clients to us to undertake a RMA because we have the necessary skills and expertise – because we sell businesses for a living and we know how much they are worth in the current market and can realistically appraise them!
Business Valuation Reports
Sometimes a RMA will not suffice and a formal valuation report is required. Being both Chartered Accountants and Registered Business Valuers we have the experience and knowledge to undertake formal business valuations for restructuring, internal/employee sales, CGT purposes and various other scenarios. We are competent to undertake formal business valuations because we actively sell businesses in the current market and have access to facts and data to support our opinions. Generally, we do not undertake valuations for family law purposes and court related disputes.
Over the years, we have assisted with mergers and partnerships in the professional practice space. You are welcome to discuss your specific requirements with us.
Although we normally act for the seller, we can also be engaged to act for the buyer to find them a business and investigate possibilities on their behalf. Due to the nature of Buyers Advocate we normally charge an upfront fee together with a success fee.
We sometimes see situations arise where a seller is already dealing with a buyer for their business, however during negotiations an issue has arisen and the potential sale has stalled. Due to our broad range of experience, knowledge and skills we can be engaged to step into the process at this stage and assist the seller in moving forward and finding a resolution. We have a lot of experience and are also a great sounding board, so we also undertake once off consulting engagements from time to time.
We have also helped buyers that have found a business they are considering buying and would like some guidance on how to move forward. These are usually once off consulting engagements.
Commercial Property Sales
If you are wanting to sell your business and also own the commercial property the business operates from, we are licensed to market and sell the premises which means you can sell your business and the premises at the same time.
