Pre-sale planning

Pre-transaction planning and advice is often vital to ensuring the most profitable outcome in the event of a sale.

Whether you are considering the sale of all or just a part of your business, we recommend obtaining advice beforehand to minimise the commercial and tax risks that could arise and maximise the return to shareholders.

Our partners and staff have significant experience of helping owner-managers, multinational businesses and private equity funds to achieve a tax-efficient exit from their investments.

In all cases we look to provide straightforward, practical advice that simplifies and adds value to the transaction process.

The services we offer include:
  • Long-term exit planning
  • Financial and tax ‘health checks’
  • Preparation and review of financial projections
  • Pre-sale structuring (including group reorganisations, demergers, etc.)
  • Personal tax advice for owner-managers
  • Structuring of purchase consideration
  • Structuring management buyouts
