Sell a small business

At First City we understand that each business is unique and that each seller’s motivation and desired outcome may be different. As a consequence, the marketing and services we provide are bespoke to allow us to focus on your specific requirements.

For some, the sale of a business is purely a commercial exercise in maximising return, yet for others (particularly family run businesses) a sale can be an emotional and difficult path to take. Whatever your situation, we will be happy to talk to you about your circumstances and motives on a confidential, free, no-commitment basis to discuss the options and how best we may be able to help you achieve them.

We aim to be a one stop shop for anyone considering the sale of a business. Whether you are researching and planning a sale or exit in a few years time or you need to sell quickly and without delay, we will be glad to help. For those not yet ready to pick up the telephone to discuss matters, we have provided a number of useful links for resources to allow you to find out about the sale process and your options on your own terms.
