IRONING OUT THE COMPLEXITIES AND GETTING SOME PEACE OF MIND

When you’re buying or investing in a business, it can be a complicated process. Most importantly, you typically want to be sure of three things: 1) You’re buying the business for the right price, 2) you’re getting exactly what you pay for and 3) there’ll be no nasty surprises. You want a clear understanding of what you’re working with from day one. Before the keys even touch your hands.

When you’re selling a business, you want to know that you’re fully prepared for the rigours of due diligence from another party. That means you may want an independent report on the business in order to stay in control and make the ultimate disposal process less painful. Or you may want a review of specific numbers, or simply an experienced sounding board.

You want to know if there are any risks. And you want to know you’re making the right decision. That’s where our highly experienced Transaction Services specialists can help.

DUE DILIGENCE ISN’T A TICK BOX EXERCISE

Some people may think of due diligence as simply a tick in the box. That’s not the case – every transaction is different, and we flex our approach and scope accordingly. We’ll tell you what we really think about your transaction, which is something a lot of accountancy firms are scared to do. We will structure findings and advice in a clear way, too, using insightful analysis to support our recommendations.

SOUND ADVICE, NO SURPRISES

We’ll stay in touch throughout the due diligence process, so there’ll be no surprises when it comes to reading our report. We’ll make the report easy to follow and we’ll talk you through our findings and advice based on our years of transactions experience.

We can provide advice on the sale and purchase agreement and we also offer support on the compilation and review of completion accounts, helping you to see your transaction through to the end.

We are an integral part of the wider CP Deals team and are able to draw on a huge pool of skills and experience to complement and further enhance our services.

WE’VE WORKED WITH COMPANIES OF ALL SIZES

We’re a dedicated, flexible, experienced team and we deliver detailed, comprehensive transactions advice that will meet your demands.

Reviews

PAUL, JAN 2024

“Excellent service for our first year audit.”

DAVID, JAN 2024

“R&D Claim: The results were better than expected. The additional cash will enable us to increase profitability”

ALAN, JAN 2024

“R&D Claim: The results were not as good as previous years. The additional cash will allow us to further invest in our R&D program.”

STUART, JAN 2024

“Great to have a personal relationship with the whole team. Always willing to help. Sometimes a little slow to respond on some issues (but then again so are we). Audit team are brilliant, bar audits far to long now owing to the amount of sample data we have to provide, which is hard when you have a small team and limited time.”

CLAIRE, JAN 2024

“Great team, and much improved communication and pro-active engagement over the past three months.”

MARK, DEC 2023

ROB, DEC 2023

“R&D Claim: Having worked with the R&D team at CP for a few years now, I had a good idea what to expect. As per usual they exceeded our expectations. The additional cash will allow us to invest in our fleet.”

RICHARD, DEC 2023

“Excellent service. Need to ensure pricing is competitive.”

DAVID, OCT 2023

“Good insights provided. Nice team to deal with. Need more consistency of team members and where this is not possible a better handover should be provided to new members. Need strong manager oversight on all audits, in particular where there are complex transactions etc. Improved communication between audit team and finance functions within the business.”

LUCIA, JUN 2023

“Final Packs are taking too long, communication”
