Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of working with a transactions advisor?

There are many complex, time-consuming and potentially hazardous aspects involved with a business transaction. An expert corporate finance advisor can assess every angle of a potential acquisition to determine the benefits, liabilities and maximum value that you stand to gain.

What type of business purchases do you specialise in?

Our department provides a full range of transaction services, including mergers, acquisitions, buy-ins and buy-outs. Within this, our expertise covers the areas of due diligence, business valuations, financial modelling and much more.

Do you offer accountancy services?

Yes, Gerald Edelman is a firm of chartered accountants. We are heavily focused towards the provision of advisory services but offer a broad range of professional services, including those of a more traditional firm of accountants. Our clients find this to be an incredibly valuable and convenient solution as they don’t need to engage another firm to cover their accountancy needs.

How do our fees work?

Our fees are agreed upfront in line with an agreed scope. Our scope of work is fully tailorable, meaning our fees are flexible, which is a benefit of our agile and entrepreneurial team.

At what point in a transaction should we engage with you?

We would recommend that you get in touch with us when you are first considering any type of transaction. This will allow us to advise you on the best route for your business, minimising wasted time and fees. However, we offer our services at all stages of the transaction.

Where can I learn more about transactions?

We regularly produce educational guides for those wishing to learn more about our industry and services. If you're looking to learn more about the M&A transaction process, then we recommend starting with our two guides covering business sales and business acquisitions.
