Established, proven expertise

When it comes to ensuring you buy the right business for you, knowledge is power.

That’s why, when you buy a business with Ernest Wilson, you can rest assured that we’ll be the first to let you know when a new, suitable business comes to the market. Our unrivalled networks mean that we’re the first to know about newly listed businesses, and we’re straight on the phone to many of our waiting buyers as soon as we’ve been instructed to sell a business.

Should you need it, we can also offer you information on profit margins and how to read a set of trading accounts, as well as all-important guidance on how much you can borrow from the high street banks and arranging finance.




Complementary, one-to-one consultations

If you choose to buy with us, we believe in giving you the very best service. After all, you are making a life changing commitment, and that requires a little bit of sound support.

Through a free, face-to-face consultation, we’ll talk you through the ins and outs of the business you’re thinking of buying, giving advice on the company’s current financials and what profits you might expect to make. This way, you’ve got honest, upfront information to help you make that all important decision.
