About Accounting Practice Sales

What we do

We will assist you in determining the asking price for your firm and show you how best to position your business in the market. We will then use our experience, negotiation skills and market knowledge to commence a structured confidential approach, to ensure you achieve a great result.

So whether you have a CPA based firm or a Chartered Accountancy practice or a member of other Industry body we can help.

Our brokers

APS have selected the best licensed brokers who will take the time to understand what you are trying to achieve from your sale, help you reach your goals and match the right buyer to your business whilst ensuring a smooth exit.

We understand many stakeholders are involved in a sale; from your family, partners and employees and of course your clients. Most owners have spent considerable time and effort to establish and grow their business, in most cases over many years. This alone should motivate any business owner to ensure they use a licensed and experienced broker.

Selling can be stressful for a variety of reasons, but it doesn’t have to be that way. By working with a licensed broker who can guide and advise through the process, stress can be minimised and costly pitfalls avoided.


APS brokers have associations with a number of professional firms that can assist practices in a number of areas. We encourage the use of industry based professionals and are happy to recommend professionals that can help. These include:

  • Tax Lawyers
  • Commercial Lawyers
  • Business Coaches
  • Bankers
  • Commercial Loan Brokers
  • Financial Planners
  • Due Diligence and Compliance Reviews
