Selling a business


Selling a business doesn't have to be stressful! Speak to the award winning Hilton Smythe, the UK's leading small business broker.


It is the dream of many to run a successful business. Well, you have achieved it; and now you are ready to capitalise on your achievements and sell the business.


You and your business deserve the best, which is why every project we undertake has a personal touch. You will be guided through, from the beginning to the end, by one of our experienced advisors on a bespoke, tailored and completely confidential basis when selling a business.


Hilton Smythe will manage the whole project utilising our expertise and qualified personnel to deliver a successful transaction, enabling you to concentrate on running your business until the business is sold.


Our no risk approach to selling a business

We sell more businesses faster
We're selling more businesses than other brokers, and we are selling them faster. With an average sale agreed in just 6 months. That's half of the time other agents expect to have you sold.


No advertising fees up-front
We won't charge you up-front to advertise on the main business for sale platforms. We're focused on getting your business sold and not selling to you.*


Hilton Smythe guarantee
100% guarantee to advertise your business on all of our third party platforms, throughout your instruction, including, Daltons and Rightmove. Other brokers may only advertise on one or two platforms at a time.**


No minimum periods or cancellation fees
We don't commit you to a minimum period and we won't charge you a cancellation fee; we just ask for 6 weeks' notice to end your agreement with us, so if you don't like us, you're free to go elsewhere.


All in legal fees
We were the first national broker to do so and we still include your legal fees as standard so you know exactly where you stand on costs.***
