Selling a Business

We help you understand the value of your business as it is now, the optimum point at which to exit your business, and most importantly – how to get there.

Preparing your business for sale

Selling a business is one of the most challenging transactions you will ever undertake. Our team of advisors can help you through the process and help ensure you maximise the value of your exit.

For most business owners, their business journey will ultimately end with them handing the keys to the kingdom over to someone else, and of course, you will want to hand the business over in the best possible state. Often, the current value can be some way short of what you need. We work with our clients to help them grow, develop and focus their business so that they can bridge the gap between where the value is now, and where it needs to be.

Getting your house in order

The personal investment of blood, sweat and tears by an owner will mean that this is as much about protecting the future of the business and your employees as it is about protecting your own future.

Whether it be a sale of a business or passing it on to the next generation, making sure some of the less glamorous aspects of running a business are in order is key to a successful exit. By going through our strategic planning processes, we establish where your business is now, where you need it to be in order to meet your goals, and what actions you need to take to get there. This can include ensuring your accounting systems are up to scratch, building high-quality, meaningful management information reporting, or ensuring that your employees are all under contracts that are fit for purpose and many other aspects. Failing to attend to any of these areas can lead to erosion of value during the sale process.

Dealing with your buyer

WR Partners can help you throughout your whole journey from the tentative first steps towards deciding on your exit route, through the hard work of preparing the business to maximise your return to the day when ultimately you sign it over to its new owners.

No matter how much preparation you put into getting your business ready for sale, the actual process of selling your business is a stressful and challenging experience (although much less stressful if you are prepared!) Whether it be dealing with detailed and comprehensive due diligence requests, reviewing the reams of legal paperwork that accompany any deal or responding to last-minute issues raised by the buyer, we can support you through the sale process to take as much of that stress off your shoulders as possible.
