Acquisitions & Disposals

How to maximise buying and selling your business

When developing a business, there may come a time when the most appropriate course of action is to acquire an existing business.  This can apply to well established businesses, or to anyone starting out in a business and wanting to get started.

There are also times once you have built a good business that you may need to sell off some part of it and diversify or perhaps look to step away from the business and sell.

Complex & time consuming

Business acquisitions and disposals are often a very time consuming and complex process, which can be undertaken in various ways, with varying tax consequences, depending on the various approaches that can be taken, whether buying or selling.
