|Nicola Draper founder Draper Hinks||Hello, I’m Nicola Draper. I run Draper Hinks and have done so since 2004. We sell only accountancy fees and I am excited to announce that, since inception, we have completed over 365 deals.
Draper Hinks is very proud of its track record and reputation. Please feel free to contact me anytime at email@example.com with any questions.
DO NOT GIVE YOUR CLIENTS AWAY
If you are fed up and don’t want to work in accountancy any more, do not shut your door and tell your clients to find another accountant. Call us and let us sell your fees.
By selling your fees you will be able to have a choice of potential buyers so you can choose the best fit for your clients. A good fit will give you a higher retention rate. A higher retention rate will mean you get paid more.
Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to find out more.

|Here are two testimonials from previous vendors:-|
I heard about Draper Hinks from exchanges on Accountancy Web. I chose them because of the personal touch they give to their service. I could not have asked for more support or time from them. Their process is excellent. They understood the stresses and issues we faced and guided us through. Trying to do this without Draper Hinks is unimaginable. We have a campervan, a motorcycle and a taste for adventure and are now going to go “gallivanting”.
Vendor – Daniel Barr-Richardson FCA East Sussex
I heard about Draper Hinks from one of their flyers. They had a good website and were pleasant to talk to. I would be happy to recommend them if the opportunity were to arise. They were friendly and had straight answers to my questions. It is a transaction you will do only once and part of the broker’s role is to mentor. You need advice from the people who do the work every day. I am looking forward to not having to work to deadlines any more.
Vendor – Simon Brook CA Monmouthshire
