It is our tradition of forward thinking that ensures you always get the perfect answer
If you are buying or selling a business the main aims are always the same - to minimise costs when buying and maximise proceeds when selling.
The most important method of achieving this is to ensure the transaction is structured correctly.
We have considerable experience acting for clients buying and selling businesses of all types. We will also liaise with your solicitors or introduce one if necessary.
As accountants we not only deal with the various financial / tax issues but also, with solicitors' assistance:
When purchasing a business, we offer confidential approaches, on your behalf, to the vendor should this be necessary.
We also provide a telephone / fax / e-mail messaging service, receiving information and forwarding it confidentially.
When selling, we are also able to offer a confidential advertising service - we will arrange the advertisements in publications of your choice and pre-agree costs, make all arrangements with publishers and receive responses on your behalf referring them to you confidentially. Publishers can invoice us direct.
Our aim is to make acquiring of disposing a business of any type and size as trouble free as possible. If we are able to help you in any other way during this process please ask.
We believe tax investigation insurance to be of fundamental importance as the tax authorities now have more power than ever to investigate UK businesses and tax payers. Last year they raised over £20 billion from tax investigations and the number of investigations looks set to increase this year. Anyone can be investigated and it can be completely at random regardless of how well prepared your books and records are. Typically, once an enquiry has been opened, HMRC only have one opportunity to raise further tax. They cannot return at a later date unless they make a discovery. This means even under a random enquiry and even when “you have nothing to hide”, HMRC tend not to leave any stone unturned.
We have chosen to use Croner Taxwise Limited to provide this insurance cover.
