Acquisition & disposals
Our experience in the field of corporate finance has furnished our team with a detailed understanding of how businesses in a broad range of sectors operate. We have also built up an array of contacts with a variety of financial institutions, leaving us well placed to assist with acquisitions and disposals.
Our work in acquisitions is often centred on appraising the business of the target company. Our acquisition specialists work hard to produce comprehensive appraisals before providing assistance with the financing of the deal, and then making themselves available at all stages of the completion process.
We take a similarly rigorous approach to disposals, drawing on our experience to assess the business for sale, provide a realistic valuation, and then carefully time the marketing of the disposal and assist with the subsequent negotiations – no matter how complex they might be.
When it comes to raising funds for an acquisition or disposal, our strong relationships with a range of finance providers means we can help our clients to access venture capital, development capital, working capital, debtor or asset finance, and we can obtain feedback and assistance before a fixed decision is taken.
Plan to succeed
Underpinning our success in the corporate finance processes mentioned above is our proficiency in corporate finance tax planning.
This specialist and high growth area involves assessing the tax implications of any proposed transaction and advising on alternatives which may be more tax efficient, both for private individuals and corporate entities.
Our review of the tax implications will consider the consequences for the company and the individuals concerned, assessing the impact on any available income tax, capital gains tax or inheritance tax reliefs available. We have a high level of expertise in strategies such as hiving off, remuneration planning, EIS relief, share option schemes, capital reduction demergers and entrepreneurs’ relief.
