Business Sales and Acquisitions

Whether you are buying or selling a business, we understand that these transactions are amongst the biggest and most complex that most people will undertake in their lives. It is essential that both purchasers and vendors seek expert advice prior to making a commitment. At DJ Smith Group we aim to guide you through the minefield of potential risks and rewards so as to ensure you maximise your outcomes.

We can guide you through the process of preparing your business for sale, evaluating offers, liaising with lawyers and other external parties, and utilising the small business CGT concessions and other tax planning tools to minimise your tax and maximise your return.

When buying a business it is essential that due diligence is undertaken to ensure that the statements made by the vendor correspond to the reality of the business’s current state of affairs and future outlook. We can provide advice regarding the most appropriate structure for owning and managing a business and related assets and financing the purchase. We can recommend and liaise with lawyers, financiers and other parties in order to make your acquisition that little bit easier.
