Buying a Business

Buying a Business

Company and commercial matters can be complex and we’re here to help you through the process. We have extensive experience spanning collectively over 80 years and are specialists in the owner managed business and SME markets.

We’ll deal with your queries in plain English and explain and agree our costs with you at the outset.

We can help you with the following:-

Buying A Business

Asset Purchase

This is a purchase where you select what you want to buy from the seller – it may be part only of a business, for example, a list of customers or a particular income stream which the seller is happy to part with.

Our experienced team based in Rochdale and Bury regularly deal with:-

  • Purchases of letting Agencies that were owned by estate agents
  • Patented processes that could be separated from the rest of the trading of the seller
  • Franchises
  • Purchases of retail outlets in a particular town where the seller might continue to trade elsewhere.

We can help ensure that you are VAT efficient, and go beyond the face value of the deal to help you prevent the seller from competing with you. We work in partnership with your accountant as one team to ensure the smoothest possible transaction for you and your business.

Share Purchase

We have extensive experience acting on share purchase deals and can carry out a thorough “due diligence” process to ascertain if there are any “skeletons” in the cupboard of your seller.

We will carefully check what you’re buying and guide you through the process.
