When is the best time to sell?
This depends on various factors such as your personal situation and general outlook. You (and your partners) may decide that you’ve taken the practice as far as you can and it’s time for fresh ideas and energy to drive it forward. As for timing, a sale will take 2 to 6 months. The self-assessment tax season is generally quiet; otherwise there is always good demand for well run accountancy firms. By acting early and planning ahead with an experienced broker like Hornblower at your side you minimise the risks of a rushed decision to sell.
