Business Sale Service
Our Business Sale Service is charged on a predominantly “success fee” basis. Hornblower commits a substantial amount of resource on our clients’ behalf, preparing their business for the sale process, researching the market, marketing and managing the transaction; because of this we do ask for nominal retainer fees, payable on engagement and heads of terms, to mark a joint commitment to the process. The retainer fees are non-refundable.
You are not obliged to accept any of the offers we receive on your behalf and should you change your mind about selling your business, there are no ‘withdrawal’ fees. We do ask for sole agency and exclusivity throughout the process, for a minimum of 12 months.
Our Valuation Report service is normally provided as part of the Business Sales Service Package. However, we are happy to carry out independent valuations for a fixed fee.
We offer an indicative valuation for the purposes of inter shareholder negotiations and financial planning for £1250 + VAT.
Full Valuation Reports for tax planning, Employee Ownership assessments and other legal purposes are charged at £3950 + VAT.

Acquisition Target Search
Our Acquisition Target Search service is charged predominantly on a
“success fee” basis. Because we offer a pro-active approach to researching off-market deals, advising on your growth strategy and managing your
acquisition we ask for a nominal retainer fee for the initial stages of the process, which we agree with clients on a case by case basis.
