The story behind the numbers

Buying or Selling a Business 

If you aim to sell your business, before money changes hands the buyer will want to know that ‘what’s on the label is in the tin’.  Expect the buyer’s accountants to request lots of information and ask searching questions.  At the same time the business will need to be kept on track!

How can you reduce the stress of due diligence, speed it up & improve the chances of getting the deal over the line?  It’s worth considering getting expert help.  Vendor assistance provides more bandwidth and better control and should improve the buyer’s confidence.

If you’re planning to buy an existing business, you’ll need far more than just the bottom line. You’ll need to carry out due diligence to explore the financial track record and prospects and delve into specific aspects to identify and explain anomalies.

When you buy a business it’s important to know how it’s been doing, but also to look to the future. Knowing the questions to ask, having the instinct to probe and understanding what the figures really mean is definitely a job for a specialist. 

Whether you’re buying or selling you need expert help to ensure the figures stand up to scrutiny. Camrose Consulting can help you to cover the financial bases and make the process less stressful.
