Selling a Business?

Selling a business in the UK? We’ll be with you every step of the way

Selling any business can be a daunting task, but even more so when you’ve worked hard to build your own. That’s why finding the right business transfer agent is so important; you need to trust that you are working with people who have your best interests at heart.

That’s exactly what you’ll find at Ernest Wilson. Our clients’ interests are at the forefront of everything we do, and we’re pleased to have built a reputation based on our passion for what we do, implicit trustworthiness and thousands of recommendations over the last 60 years. Selling your business can be a time of mixed emotions, but we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Ernest Wilson is the leading business transfer agent in the north of England. We will never ask for payment in advance, not only do we have the necessary expertise to correctly value your business, we also have the resources to professionally market that business and obtain the best possible price in the market.



No advance payments

We don’t believe in asking for payment in advance, so we simply won’t do it. We often find that those who do are more interested in obtaining your signature than finding you a buyer, leaving their clients underwhelmed by the lack of advertising and efforts put in to selling their business.

Our advice is straight forward: if an agent asks for any payment from you in advance, don't use that agent.

Confidential, discreet support

Selling your business calls for discretion balanced with commerciality. We know that simply putting up a For Sale sign often does little more than set tongues wagging and unsettle your staff, and we’re pleased that we sell over 99% of businesses without the need for one.

We don’t give out details of your business to a potential buyer unless they are registered with us. Only then will they receive the full particulars of sale on your business. Our drive, passion and attention to detail in selling your business means we’ll only introduce it to people who are the very best fit.

Unrivalled, interested contacts

Our database of potential buyers is unrivalled by other transfer agents, and we’re proud of our relationships with potential buyers that allow us to understand exactly what they are looking for – meaning we can sell your business faster.

We offer local, regional and online advertising, and have extensive links to finance through a variety of financial institutions which help to complete your sale.
