Selling Your Business

If you have decided to sell your business, there is a good chance that it is a once in a lifetime decision and so it is important to plan properly to ensure you gain the maximum benefit for you, your shareholders and staff.

What you need to consider…

There are several considerations in the sale process, so it is a good idea to appoint experienced practitioners to guide you through, enabling you to concentrate on the day–to–day running of your business without the administrative burden. 

The Rayner Essex Corporate Finance Team have many years of experience in this field and, with their wide network, are adept at sourcing opportunities and potential buyers.

We will advise you on the most tax efficient method of selling your business in order to maximise the amount you ultimately receive. 

Identify and target potential buyer

We use experienced brokers to market the business to trade buyers, private equity houses and investors alongside our own network of contacts across many industries. 


Skilled in negotiating, we can secure the best deal for both you and your buyer. 

Sale Preparation

Planning Your Exit

Making sure you exit your business with the least amount of stress and best financial gain is imperative. We will also advise on the most tax efficient way to do so.
