We pride ourselves on our ability to utilise our extensive knowledge of your industry as well as buyer insights to arrive at a realistic valuation for your business. To achieve this we book a convenient meeting with one of our dedicated industry consultants to analyse your businesses value.

Often accurately valuing a business is the crucial step in selling a business - an accurate valuation will ensure a prompt sale. If the price meets your expectations then we will immediately list your business on our website and get to work discreetly promoting your business to our interested buyers.

We can also assist purchasers with commercial loans and mortgages via our FSA regulated finance company, Intelligent Business Finance.
