Some of life’s harshest lessons are learnt in practice – the first time you climb (and then fall out of) a tree, wearing your slippers to school, and submitting tax returns late. These are the kinds of things you do once… and then you learn from them.
However, as a business owner, when it comes to selling up, your ‘once’ may be your only chance. The only learning experience you may get from selling your business is the deep regret of ever going down that route in the first place. Get it wrong, and it could be the most costly sequence of decisions you’ve ever navigated.
This is why we created Firm Gains. Owned by entrepreneurs and business owners, all of whom have direct experience running and selling companies, we have walked this path many times and decided to create a website to help other fellow business sellers navigate this challenging journey. Our in-house advisory team are on hand to help you every step of the way.
By helping you avoid the pitfalls, we believe you can ultimately end up with the best possible end result. In our experience, whilst good fortune can play a part, the best business sales are a result of making informed choices every step of the way. So, call the team on 0333 050 8225 and let’s get started.
Explore the options available to you, improve your chances of successful sale.
If you’re seeking a business to buy, then we can increase your deal flow.
In the early stages of such an important undertaking, it can be a bit of a moral maze: who do you trust?
Firm Gains gave me confidence with detailed advice and support. I would recommend their services to other entrepreneurs seeking to buy a business.Mr T Washington , Founder
I found it much easier to get my head around a business sale this way than talking to my accountant. You speak a language I understand!
Even though the whole process of selling seems daunting, I’ve got more confidence that I’m heading in the right direction.Mrs T Boothe , Founder
Thank you for your email and the excellent advice provided earlier this week. It was immensely helpful and has helped me to plan my future direction for the practice.
I would have no problem whatsoever in recommending your services in the future.Mr & Mrs Halldron , Co-Owners
Firm Gains were recommended to me and I was not disappointed. They were efficient, helpful and effective responding quickly to my request with all the facts that were needed to ensure a stress-free dialogue with our buyer.
What really helped was the advice over and above the valuation, which was immensely valuable and gave me the confidence to proceed. I would not hesitate in recommending them.Mr C Waite , Founder
We found the advice invaluable, which was clear and concise and felt your firm had a good handle on market trends and business sectors.
With also the backup of the secondary services, there was a feeling you had all bases covered if we wanted to proceed with our exit via Management Buy Out (‘MBO’).Mr D Wills , Director
Thank you for your advice. I was just about to sign up to the wrong kind of business agent for a company of our size, but read your post just in time.
I found a more serious partner, with experience in our industry and we’re already using the same language.Mr F Summerscale , Managing Director
We have been greatly impressed by the clear and impartial advice given to us by Firm Gains. After just an initial phone call we felt much better informed, with a new awareness of the many options available to us.
Firm gains understood our situation quickly and clearly and were anything but ‘pushy’. Refreshing compared to what we’d experienced before.Mr C Hutcheson , Managing Director
