Marriott & Co. provide an expert service in the buying or selling of businesses and advise and assist clients throughout the whole business sale process.

Sales overseen by Marriott & Co. will be either an asset purchase, or a share purchase. In an asset purchase the business assets are sold as a ‘going concern’. However, in a share purchase all of a company’s assets, liabilities and obligations are taken on by the purchaser.

Our surveyors usually value the business concerned in the first instance. They take into consideration the businesses’ tangible assets, intangible assets, such as the goodwill, and any owned stock. In addition, our disposal & marketing team devise and deliver a carefully considered marketing plan. This includes the use of our exclusive business brokerage database and bespoke mailing lists, online and print advertising, social media posts and press releases.

The Marriott & Co. team also oversee any meetings or viewings required, negotiate with offerors and assist with the sale completion.

Our business sales can also be conducted under the strictest confidentiality terms, in accordance with our client’s wishes. Interested parties will have to sign and return a full Non-Disclosure Agreement before disclosure of a company name and details.

Recent business sales include construction businesses, manufacturers, retailers, publishers, breweries, automotive businesses and service businesses such as hairdressers.
