As a business advocate of the LEP, we can provide additional advice to clients with help from the monthly emails we receive containing useful information that can benefit companies across Norfolk and Suffolk.

People look to sell a business for multiple reasons, but to achieve the best price it is important to prepare the business for sale.  We provide both free valuations and quality advice on increasing the value.

We appreciate there are many reasons owners may decide to close down their businesses, such as illness and personal issues. However, there is no need to close the company when it could be sold instead.  Traditionally a valuer will look at the adjusted profit of the existing business model, and if this is under a certain level will value the business at £0.  That might be the case, but consider the following two scenarios:

We actively find buyers rather than just advertise businesses for sale.

We use social media, forums and emails to target people within the relevant trade sectors. We target clients that have recently been made redundant; leaving them with a desire for a new business to invest in, along with those that will purchase a business after seeing the benefits of increased turnover and consolidation. We also attract investors that are looking to run the business and work with Objectives Reached to turn it into a franchise operation.

Our valuations and initial consultations are free – meaning you will be aware of the adjustments that your business needs to increase its value.  Our valuation of your business may end up being lower than other companies who charge you for advertising.  This is because many of these companies try to sell for higher prices as this increases the time it will take to find a buyer; meaning they will receive more money from you as it will be advertised for much longer.

‘No sale, No fee’ means we set our valuations at realistic prices.  We quote a commission, which is only due once we have found a willing and able buyer with the available finances.  

Objectives Reached offers temporary or interim management to cover the absence of the owners and senior managers of many businesses.  This can be done on both a full and part-time basis.

The Pain We Solve

Too many advertisements show competitors and customers you are trying to sell, creating uncertainty.

People wasting time can create false hope and more unnecessary work.

The Best Solution

Avoid general advertisements and use of the business name.

Distinguish the ‘time wasters’ from serious potential buyers.

Why We Are the Best Solution Provider

We target buyers specific to the business on offer.

We prepare the business for sale to achieve the highest valuation.

We understand that potential buyers can have


The nature of buying, selling and valuing businesses has changed over the last few years. Achieving a realistic offer from someone with the ability to pay appears to take more time and effort than placing an advert on the Businesses for sale web site.  

Business Transfer

North Norfolk Garage, with car sales, MOT bay and full workshop

The owners, of this well established garage, are looking to retire and rent out the garage.  As the business needs an input of enthusiasm, the low selling price will include stock, customer lists and most of the equipment required.

With 4 lifts and long pit, the large workshop can accommodate at least 6 vehicles being worked on at once.  It would also be suitable as a base and service facilities for a taxi or minibus company.  

50% partnership in Norwich Café - or outright sale

The owner of the café, which has become popular with the Golden Triangle crowd who are looking for something new, needs some help.  He is looking for a working business partner/Chef, see below for options.

It opens day times and sometimes 1 evening a week. It needs to increase the opening hours to meet demands.  The café specialises in using local produce and has just had a boost in trade after a great feature in the media.  

Price for partnership including a 50% share of the equipment is £12,500.  

Outright purchase £25,000.  Chef/Owner would stay on if required.

We do not see working capital being required.

Bond St Bakery and Best Bites, Cromer.  Under offer.  However, we have another Bakery South West of Norwich coming onto the market when the owner retires in November.
