Sell your firm

Selling your Practice.

Selling an accounting practice can be a daunting decision for many, a huge relief for others or a welcome change of pace. One thing we have learned over the years is that Sellers not only want a great selling price and terms but often equally important to them is how the buyer takes care of the clients and staff. We understand this and maintain an awareness of our client goals throughout the entire process.

Why FirstClass?

This is a common question we get almost every day. At FirstClass, we are practicing Certified Public Accountants and Enrolled Agents with over 30 years of experience, and because of that experience, we understand the relationships you have created with your clients and the culture of your firm. We realize that you are not selling your clients, but entrusting your long established relationships to the ideal successor. There are very few brokers that specialize in the sale of accounting practices, because it’s a different process. We are not just listing a property or business; we are transitioning two professionals.

Selling Process

As with any successful task, there is a successful process; here at FirstClass we have mastered our sales process with an emphasis in quality of qualified buyers and successful transition of your firm, from one seller to a new buyer.

We have developed a five-step process.

Step 1. Understanding Your Firm.

Step 2. Preparing Your Firm for Sale.

Step 3. Marketing & Selling Your Firm.

Step 4. Closing the Transaction.

Step 5. Transitioning the Firm.
