Biz Start-ups, Purchase, Sale

Business Establishment

You have a business concept? Let's turn it into reality! To transform that gem of an idea to a fully functional business, talk to us.

From deciding and creating the best business structure, through to creating a business plan, budgets, task list, choosing financiers and determining how much capital is required. Establishing sound administrative and accounting systems and setting monthly sales targets, registering with the IRD and learning how to manage staff and payroll.

There are many matters that need to be addressed and getting it right from the start is imperative. A structure that suits one situation does not always work in another. It can prove difficult and costly to unwind an incorrect set-up.

We recommend investing the time at the beginning and choosing the right options from the outset.

Get your foundations right – then build your business!

Business Valuations

What is my business worth? Does it have any value? Is someone else likely to want to buy it? These are often asked questions to which an independent valuation can provide answers.

Typically such valuations can be required for the transfer shares in a company to a Trust, for matrimonial settlements, insurance purposes or the sale of a business.

A valuation can be essential for determining a fair value for a business. There are many factors that affect value and we can discuss these factors in detail so that you better understand the concept of value creation and how you can maximise the value of your business.

Purchase of Business… Due Diligence

You wouldn't buy a house without first having it thoroughly checked out by a specialist, so why would you consider purchasing a business without taking those same steps?

Due diligence is one of the most important steps in any business purchase. As part of this process, we will:

  • Identify and highlight risks 
  • Help you to know and understand what you are buying
  • Determine what role you may/should have in the business
  • Identify funding requirements 
  • Calculate the return on investment in the business. 
  • Collate relevant information to assist you with making an informed purchase decision

Our professional expertise in this area is based on many years' practical experience. Involving us will take away the fear factor and help you make informed decisions.

Selling a Business

When considering the potential sale of your business, we recommend you talk with us first…ideally well in advance.

We can work with you to prepare the business for sale – sometimes this process needs to commence a year or two out from the desired sale date.

Reviewing systems, staffing levels and agreements, products and stock levels, debtor's collections, supplier terms, profitability – there are many aspects to consider that ultimately drive value and attract potential purchasers. Determining the best marketing method, how to set a realistic price range, negotiations with potential purchasers and assistance with due diligence – these are all areas we can help.
