M&A Accountancy

When to crystalise the value of your business is one the most important and challenging decisions you will face as a company owner. Trusting those working on your behalf to deliver the right sale price with the right protective terms written into the agreement is vital. Also, having someone to discuss the implications of life post any company sale.


The team are here to help you through every step and answer any queries you may have along the way. Some questions that you might want to consider will be:


  • Do you stay on?

  • Do you transition the company into the acquiring organisation?

  • Do you retire immediately?

  • What happens with your staff?

  • What do the earn out terms look like?

  • What will be expected of you and your company post deal completion to be paid my full expected sale price consideration?


Capital and Trust are one of the leading business brokers in the UK. We are financial services specialists and have a team of lawyers, chartered accountants and tax planners to help you navigate this unfamiliar landscape.

Payment of deferred consideration is usually directly linked to client retention so you will want to understand the environment being rolled out to clients post any deal completion.


We work with many of the largest accountancy practices in the UK. They offer a range of different deal structures with valuation multiples usually being driven by either EBITDA or a multiple of revenue. Typically, we find the most important factors in determining the multiple to be profit when a deal completes, opportunity to increase the profit post deal completion – and sustainability of that profit line. Our specialist team will help you by presenting your information in a way to help you achieve the best outcome.


If you have seen enough and you know that we are the right team for you, then give us a call on 0207-043-4300 for a free confidential informational discussion or fill in our form.
