Tax implications of selling your business


So if you are starting to think about the possibility of selling your estate agency, it is clearly important that you receive some tax planning advice from the outset. Normally, most potential sellers refer to their existing accountant, which is fine as long as your accountant has the breadth of experience to give up to date and accurate advice.

For reasons of confidentiality, you may wish to speak freely with an accountant who is totally removed from your everyday business environment – if so, we work with The Fish Partnership who specialise in advising clients about tax matters in this area. Go to or call Denise Eyles or Martin Sheehy of The Fish Partnership on 01628 527956.
