I just wanted to say that I would highly recommend your company to other accountants looking to sell their business. I was daunted before the start of this process but you put my mind at rest at every stage. Everything you told me during our first call was exactly what happened and your timescales were extremely accurate. This really helped me plan everything. I had 4 meetings arranged and received an excellent offer from a practice that was a perfect fit for me. You also went out of your way to take my call on the Sunday before the sale to answer some final questions when I had a wobble! I cannot recommend your services enough. Thank you so much.

Essex Accountant Alan Kitson of Alan Kitson & Company sold to Spencer Watson AccountantsAlan

l decided to sell my practice and contacted Peter Watson from Bains Watts. Peter very kindly met me at home and talked me through the process and assured me that he would market the business with confidentiality being a significant factor both for clients and staff. The initial response was extremely favorable and a shortlist was prepared to have face-to-face meetings. In a short period of time, the meetings were held and an acceptable offer was made and accepted. I am now 5 months into a post-sale relationship with the new owners and I am very happy with the outcome thank Peter for his guidance and assistance.

I wish to take this opportunity in thanking you for your professionalism in disposing of my practice from beginning to end. From my initial contact with you, telephone calls, emails and visit, a purchaser gave me a firm offer you had arranged five appointments for me, all of which were excellent candidates but obviously I could only choose one. Effectively, you sold my practice within two weeks and I thank you greatly for your expertise given.
