Transaction Support

From valuations to financial due diligence, we can help with a range of transactional support services regardless of what stage you’re at and side of the fence you’re on.

Transaction Support

At The Smart Accountants, we have acted as trusted advisers on many transactions that have completed smoothly and on favourable terms for our clients. Throughout the sale process, we aim to offer proactive, commercial, strategic and technical guidance, whether you’re the acquirer or seller and the transaction is all or part of the business. 

We’re able to provide financial due diligence for acquirers, so we can ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the business and full transparency on any issues facing the business. Likewise, we can help businesses preparing for sale and provide vendor due diligence beforehand.

A large consideration of any transaction is tax and we have tax experts with a wealth of experience with transactions that can provide specialist guidance before any transaction and tax planning beyond this.

How can we help?

We can provide a comprehensive range of transaction services ranging from financial due diligence on acquisition targets to business valuations. Examples of the services we can provide are:

“The team have helped us grow and become more professional. Dave has been invaluable in advising us. He has helped our accounts team so much and they now absolutely love Xero!”

David Sharp, D.B. Sharp and Sons Limited

“Stock taking was a nightmare and we kept everything on spreadsheets until we spoke to the team. Switching over to Xero was an easy process.”

Mick Ginn, Macron Store Hertfordshire

“One of my previous headaches was always the absence of reliable management information and that often consumed my time unnecessarily. Since working with the team, they have implemented new systems, enhanced existing systems and they provide information on a monthly basis which is accurate and clearly communicated. This allows me to spend time doing what I should be doing.

Combine that with their sector expertise, knowledge and professionalism we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.”

Sheldon Paule, Cameron Kennedy

“We’ve always found the team to be responsive, helpful, and proactive in suggesting ways for us to improve our processes. In particular, we have been happy with the move from Sage to Xero, which has made our lives much easier as we grow our business.”

“As our accountants and advisors, the Smart Accountants have always been on hand to support our business but recently they helped the sale of our business to an Employee Ownership Trust. Ultimately this transaction helped us with obtaining a fair price for the business, ensuring long-term succession, and rewarding our employees. The team supported us from the very initial advice and planning stage right through to the implementation and were on hand to offer their expertise throughout.”

Mark Cranstoun, Total Negotiation Group
