These can be the game-changing moments in your life - that big transaction that could have a really significant impact on your financial future and your lifestyle. Buying and selling business assets is a big thing. It can be way harder than you think. The potential pitfalls are significant and the effect of great advice can be life changing.

How we help:

  • Negotiation and commercial advice,
  • Transaction structuring,
  • Funding,
  • Taxation advisory,
  • Due diligence and more.

Are the actions you are taking in your business directed at maximising shareholder and enterprise value? What is your enterprise value? All business owners need to be focussed on value and checking in to ensure value accretion is occurring.

Valuations can also be required for special purpose situations such as funding or transaction and tax related issues.

Whether it’s a voluntary liquidation for your company, a tidy up of your corporate structure or preliminary guidance regarding your solvency and your options our advisers are here to assist.
Where do you source the funding for that important transaction? And how should it be structured? Is it practical and does it work for tax? Our advisers examine your situation and guide you through the options.
Our due diligence services are often requested in connection with a proposed purchase or sale transaction. The outcomes you often look for are increased assurance that everything you have been told about that big transaction does actually stack up.

Planning for the exit of key individuals over time is critical for the continuity of a business and maximisation of value. Let us guide you through the myriad of potentially complex issues such as funding, shareholder and buy-sell agreements, organisation and structure, taxation and transaction planning and execution.

Everyone's future is inherently uncertain. The same applies to all future ventures, be it your proposed project , business or investment. Its feasibility, risk and likely returns can best be evaluated by building a mathematical model that describes your set of circumstances.
