In either event, an accurate and detailed valuation can provide peace of mind in the decision making process. Abound specialises in small to medium market valuations.

  • taxation implications
  • timing and stage of business growth

Ready to buy?

If you are about to buy a business, we safeguard your investment by helping you with due diligence services and preparing financial forecasts for the company, as well as giving advice on financing. We can review the current business plan and look for opportunities for improvement, including the marketing plan. We examine the cashflow and budgetary position and staff engagement issues.

Merger opportunities

Mergers are exciting and sometimes quite challenging. Our solid experience can ensure you are aware of what to expect going ahead.

Ready to sell

There are many things to consider when selling. How to pitch, prepare and price your business for the outcomes you need. Our skill and experience ensure that you are in a safe pair of hands throughout the process. We work closely with you to take your business to market and obtain comparative results and establish a considered share price.

Whether buying or selling, Abound will help to review your goals and objectives and aid in the preparation of a business plan. We will also guide you through the negotiation of the sale and assist in the drafting of contracts.

Management accounting

We work closely with business owners and management to ensure that you know how well your business is performing. We do this by conducting a Business Health Check that will focus on key areas to improve your competitive advantage and profitability.

We will develop reports on all the vital aspects of your business so you know where you stand and can make decisions quickly. These reports are tailored to your organisation’s KPIs, allowing you to easily keep track of the improvements you make with the help of our professional consultants.

In our experience, the key issues that most businesses need to focus on include:

  • effective budgetary and cash flow processes
  • stock turnover and inventory assessment
  • receiving payment for invoices and managing outstanding debtors
  • completion of tasks and implementation
