“I found the business consultant who valued my company to be very polite and helpful, and the whole process to be honest and upfront. I can't think of anything IBT could have done better.”

What the seller wanted

Having run the business for almost 20 years and approaching semi-retirement age, Mr Bircher wanted to sell his business so he could move overseas to start another business! 

What Intelligent did to meet his requirements

When Mr Bircher first approached us, he told us he'd already seen another business transfer agent who quoted him initial fees that were considerably greater than our quote. Coupled with the polite and helpful approach from our Business Consultant, IBT gave Mr Bircher the reassurance he needed to go ahead and instruct us to sell his business. "It really was pot luck" he went on to tell us, "as Intelligent didn't come through a recommendation, only through an internet search."

A successful sale

We asked Mr Bircher if there was anything we could have done better, he told us, "Can't think of anything at all! IBT did it what is said on the tin and sold my business." From our point of view, Mr Bircher was equally straightforward to deal with as he fully grasped the business of selling businesses. The Registration Fee you pay initially is exactly that - a fee to cover registration costs. Those costs cover the advertising and introduction of the business for sale to market. Without that engagement, conversion can't take place. Or in other words, without the business being advertised onto market by IBT, the business sale wouldn't have taken place. Mr Bircher was immensely grateful to have sold the business with our expert assistance.
