Do you know what options are available to you when you sell?
Some vendors are paid a one-off fee with no clawback. Some vendors are paid in two tranches, one on completion and one after 12 months, with clawback. Some vendors are paid in three tranches, completion, after 12 months and after 24 months. Other vendors are paid on an earn out basis where no money is paid on completion. Other vendors are paid a lump sum on completion and then the rest on an earn out. Which one is applicable to your situation?

Two reasons to recommend Draper Hinks?
1) Approachability and ease of communication in an area that can be very emotive and touches on very personal and deeply felt issues = TLC received.
2) No hard sell – just a focus on achieving the right deal for the right reasons for all parties.
3) Level of commitment given is certainly perceived as high.
Oopps that’s three – never could count!
Vendor – Martin Potts ACA Nottinghamshire
I felt very relaxed with the process used to sell my practice. I am more than willing to recommend all sellers talk to Draper Hinks before starting the process of selling their fees.
