Selling an accountancy practice - learn about the process

Understanding the accountancy practice sale process makes it easier for retiring accountants

When you sell an accountancy practice it's probably the first and only time you'll do it so it's important to understand how the accountancy practice sale process works to help you get it right. Retiring accountants only do it once.

  • Identification of requirement - the deal will work around your needs
  • Discussion of succession / acquisition options and time scale - we examine all your options

  • Discussion of pricing and prevailing market conditions generally and locally - expert knowledge is critical
  • Targeted marketing to optimise selection - we'll only introduce potential buyers who are a likely match
  • Outline of any specific current opportunities - some buyers have very specific targets and will pay a higher price
