Creating a legacy resulting from life’s work creates both highs and lows, whether you’re selling your business, passing it on to family or to others in your business. Our specialist transaction team has been through this with their own businesses and will sensitively help you through this journey to reduce stress while achieving your goals.

Exiting your business is an incredible undertaking for most people. It’s an emotional time – often the business has been part of much of your life. Many entrepreneurs believe they can manage the sale process themselves. After all they have been selling their business’s products or services for decades. However, most business owners will only sell a business once in their lifetime.

At AssayCS, our partners are former business owners themselves. We have been in your shoes. Our process starts with understanding the legacy you want to achieve in terms of financial needs, personal desires and the impact on your business after your transition. In this way, we help to ensure that you complete the transaction that is right for your goals.

While we acknowledge that financial liquidity is important, we also understand that the legacy of your business is deeply personal and the transfer of ownership can be a difficult process.

How we can help
