Assynt is a new generation of advisory chartered accountancy practice. It only provides corporate finance services to business owners.

What Assynt does?

The main part of the business is specialising in creating plans designed to enable business owners to prepare for and achieve a succession for their business.

Assynt provides business owners with a service which will get them to the next stage of their lives whether that is the golf course, more holidays, another business or whatever. Assynt is here to help you make several times your annual profits in one go.

What problems does Assynt solve?
4 out of 5 businesses do not sell. 60,000 businesses are wound up each year. Assynt seeks to change that by increase profits and reducing the dependency upon the owner and so making the business more attractive to the buyer.

How is the service unique?

Tenacity; it’s not a numbers game; the service is project and not retainer based.

How is it done?

Any business owner who is serious about setting up a succession plan will be helped by using our lead advisory approach which will

• provide expert research,
• provide a coherent and transparent process which I will demonstrate later,
• enhance negotiations, and
• engage with the acquirers with the most to gain from an acquisition.

The whole idea of these features is to create competition to drive and optimise the value and structure of the deal and so maximise the amount in your back pocket.

Objective for business owner:

The objective is to make the business as saleable as possible by increasing profit and reducing the dependency on the owner. We then decide how we do this.


Turnover at least £1m ideally;
Solvent; and
Willingness of the owner to consider seriously looking at the succession options.
