Company Sales and Acquisitions
The sale or acquisition of a business can prove to be an extremely testing and stressful time for all involved. At this time, it is imperative that you have experienced corporate strategists and professional advisors to guide you. There are a number of tax issues that must be addressed prior to any sale or purchase and it is imperative that you talk to us well in advance to ensure you have taken advantage of any reliefs/allowances available.
We have been involved in the sale and acquisition of businesses for many years and by working as a team, we are able to pool our knowledge and ensure you get the best advice for your corporate strategy.
Raising Finance / Funding Issues
The Directors at Watson Associates recognise the importance of ensuring your business is correctly structured and adequately financed. At some point during your business life you will need to obtain funding or restructure your business finances. This may entail obtaining initial start-up funding or additional working capital to assist the growth of your business.
Any application for funding begins with a review of your business; of both historic performance and future expectations. We can then help in the production of a robust Business Plan incorporating forecasts and cash flows and liaise with various contacts in the banking community to get your funding requirements across in the most clear and concise way possible.
Our respected position in the industry and our special relationship with many of the local high street banks and lending institutions puts us in a unique position to help you obtain the finance you need.
Outsourced Management Accounts
The Outsourced Management Accounting service provides an opportunity for businesses to help them prepare their Management Accounts and review the performance of their business on a regular basis with a dedicated highly skilled professional accountants.
It is often the case, that although Management Accounts are prepared by businesses, many do not spend the time evaluating what these mean and where potential issues may lie either at the current time or in the future.
