Our Corporate Finance Services include…

Access to finance.

Using our extensive knowledge and experience, we can identify the most appropriate finance structure and source of funding to enable you to achieve your business goal. As financial experts, we can add value to this process by undertaking a financial health check of your business to identify potential areas for cost savings as well as positioning it favourably to lenders. There are finance solutions for most businesses, but it’s our job to find the right one for your business. The one that enables you to grow whilst at the same time as being able to keep more of your profit.

Financial Due Diligence.

Usually a pre-requisite for banks and venture capitalists, our due diligence service can also help uncover “skeletons in the closet” that might affect your decision to acquire or invest in a business. After the due diligence process, you’ll have a much better understanding of the potential strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of a targeted business.

Transactional Taxes.

Any type of corporate transaction has the potential to raise tax implications. Getting the tax management right can have a massive impact on the overall success of the transaction. Here at Mitchells, as part of our integrated corporate finance service, you will have access to the expertise of a Chartered Tax Adviser, ensuring that we not only mitigate any potential tax liabilities but also help you maximise your net returns.

Management buy-outs & buy-ins.

With our extensive experience of the buy out process we are confident we can negotiate some of the best deals around. Additionally we can help with the preparation of a robust business plan, financial forecasts, financial modelling and any tax issues that the process raises.

Company Valuations.

Company valuations are an important part in determining the economic value of a business for a variety of reasons, including business sale or purchase, mergers, probate valuation, CGT or IHT valuation, divorce settlement, partnership break ups and demergers. Here at Mitchells we draw on our many years of experience of both local markets and business sectors to help determine a fair value for your business.

Mergers & Acquisitions.

Don’t overlook any opportunity that may arise to increase your market share and profitability. We can support you at every stage of an acquisition, providing an independent valuation, carrying out financial due diligence, negotiating on your behalf in securing the most appropriate deal for you. We can assist you throughout the whole process providing advice on tax, compliance, financing and deal terms.


Here at Mitchell’s we have extensive experience in helping clients sell a business and we fully understand the sensitivity that comes with such a transaction. We offer comprehensive support from start to finish, from identifying potential buyers, valuing the business, advising on tax efficient selling strategies and helping with all the negotiations and contracts. However, we don’t stop there. We will always consider all key factors of a particular transaction, such as protecting any deferred or performance related consideration, agreeing our clients’ ongoing roles (if any) as well as ensuring all the wider commercial points are dealt with.
