Company Sales & Purchases
Stafford & Staffordshire
Business confidence is at last improving slightly, sufficient to re-awaken the appetite of buyers to purchase well run profitable businesses, and for sellers to realise their (probably deferred) long term retirement plans.
Tim Jobson has over 40 years’ experience in selling companies and this year has successfully completed a number of transactions, both sales and purchases, and on behalf of director shareholders on their retirement from their business.
If you instruct a Broker to find a buyer, we will work closely with that Broker and take a leading role from Heads of Terms stage onwards. We will also work hand in hand with your accountants. The essence is teamwork, to achieve for you the best possible price with expertly negotiated documentation, within the agreed timescale and within budget for costs.
Our advice extends beyond the basic transaction elements, to Capital Tax Planning (including Entrepreneur’s Relief) and company structuring with shareholders and investment agreements.
All our advice is on a professional yet friendly basis. Your transaction should be a “win win” situation for you and the other party and we will assist in making it so.
Should you be (or become) a limited company?
Should you form a LLP?
Are you a social enterprise company and wish to take advantage of the Social Value Act? If so should you be a company limited by guarantee or a CIC?
In the business environment in which you will operate, are there any preferred business structures?
The business model you choose is becoming an increasingly important issue, both from a taxation view point and from how your customers will view you. We advise charities, Chambers of Commerce, not-for-profit companies, and professional businesses as well as commercial limited companies and can (with your accountant) assist you in choosing the right business model for you.
