Get the full picture before buying or selling a business

Buying and selling businesses are big decisions, and you need the right information and support to guide you on the journey. Chartered accounting firm Diprose Miller can support you on the process of buying and selling a business, and make sure your investment and interests are protected.

Selling a business

Selling a business is a huge decision, especially if you’ve built the business from the ground up. To get the best return, you need to make sure your business is in the best shape for sale.

Diprose Miller can help you prepare your business for sale. We can prepare an information memorandum which outlines to potential buyers everything they need to know about your business and why it is an attractive investment. We can also take care of:

  • Finances – make sure your business looks attractive to potential buyers
  • Business plan – we can help you prepare a business plan, showing your business has good systems and processes in place, and potential for growth
  • Succession plan – put a succession plan in place to ensure the business will retain its expertise and knowledge without you at the helm?
  • Risks – identify potential risks and mitigate these for potential buyers


Many people choose to buy an existing business rather than establish their own. It can make financial sense to buy an existing business – you gain customers, an established brand, staff, and a premise.

But running a business can be challenging and time intensive, so before deciding, you need to research all the legal and financial implications and make sure it’s a sound decision that will yield a good profit. Diprose Miller can guide you through the process and help you assess, profitability and cashflow forecast, staffing levels, and the value of the business.


Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, Diprose Miller can help identify your goals and make sure your decision is a good fit with your goals, finances, lifestyle and family. If you do decide to purchase or sell, we can help you prepare all the necessary paperwork, and ensure a smooth transition.
