Business Acquisition Consultant

As an accountant that has bought and sold multiple businesses, I know how this works. If you would like to grow your business portfolio by acquiring another company I offer fixed fee packages to hold your hand throughout this process and ensure you do not take any unnecessary risks financially.  I can help you carry out due diligence on your target business, value it and also help you structure a mutually beneficial deal with the seller taking into account all the tax implications for both sides. I can prepare cash flow forecasts so that you can be prepared for any gaps in funding and ask the seller any difficult questions that need answering regarding the company’s existing financials.  There are many clever ways to buy a business even if you don’t have lots of money to spend by accessing commercial finance, using the money within the target business and deferring the payments over a number of years. If you would like to know more or you would like a free list of what documents to ask for when carrying out the initial due diligence please do fill in the enquiries form here… 

Joanne Bell - Business Acquisition Consultant

No, in my capacity as an accountant I have experience assisting business owners at all stages and sizes from start ups to around £7 million of turnover and from a wide variety of industries. If I do not feel I am the right person to assist you or that someone else in my network may be better suited I will let you know before any formal engagement is entered into. My only caveat would be that I do not claim to be a “business coach” so I cannot help you with mindset issues or accountability. My role as a consultant is very practical and hands on, I will give you help and advice to meet your goals with an emphasis on the financial side but it will be down to you to implement the projects we work on together.

This totally depends on whether you require my help on a particular project for example implementing a dashboard of KPIs or on an ongoing basis for example to build and grow profits over a longer period. I have various packages available, but consultations start from as little as £250If you would like to book a discovery call or ask for a bespoke quote for a project please get in touch via contact me.
