Many accounting firm owners are considering the sale of their practice.  Some are retirement-minded, while others are pursuing other interests. Some are fortunate enough to have qualified staff that has been groomed for the day that they would buy out the owner.  Many, for all sorts of reasons, do not have qualified staff able to purchase their practice.

With promised tax increases to both capital gains and ordinary income, it is wise to consider selling your firm before such changes take place.  The year of sale of one’s firm can spike income levels.  Spiking income levels combined with tax increases will result in less money in your pocket for the sale of the firm you have worked so hard to build.

We at Akins Professional Brokerage understand that firm owners considering the sale of their practice are concerned with the following:

  • The experience and technical abilities of a prospective buyer
  • Preservation of the firm’s reputation
  • Confidentiality during the selling process
  • Getting a top price for their practice
  • Guidance through the selling process
  • Getting the most cash at closing on the sale
