Business Sales Plus is one of the fastest growing brokering companies across Scotland, with decades of experience, the latest technology and a range of knowledgeable Directors based throughout the country. We are here to guide you through buying or selling a business to secure you the best possible outcome. We understand, now more than ever, how complex and stressful that process can be, which is why we strive to provide a genuinely bespoke, professional service with around the clock advice. Presenting all our clients with a designated company director, to provide their unrivalled expertise and complete reassurance, all the way through.

Based at our head office in Glasgow, we have developed a country-wide network of established consultants to ensure our extensive network is available nationwide across Scotland. Covering the whole of Scotland from our offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, our team of qualified brokers not only provide the negotiating skills necessary to maximise clients’ profitability but have a unique grasp of the business landscape within their respective regions. Calling on unmatched local knowledge and a vast array of exclusive, trusted connections to supply you with the correct calibre of interested parties and ultimately, facilitate a deal you are happy with.

In fact, unlike many business brokers, BSP guarantees that you speak to the same person throughout the transaction, so that rather than being shipped off to some faceless liaison elsewhere in the UK, you will have a dedicated contact familiar with you, your region and your business right from start to finish. That is because we know how important it is for Scottish firms to have Scottish brokers, not only to make sure the quirks of our nation’s unique laws are adhered to but to ensure that you get the level of genuine customer service you expect.

Following the turbulence of the ongoing pandemic, Brexit and the ever-evolving restrictions which have hampered Scotland’s tourism and hospitality industry, we have experienced a flurry of brokering activity across the sector. With thousands of business owners often feeling helpless to the impacts of the current external environment, we do everything we can to ensure your years of hard work pay off, whether it be getting the best possible price for your business or pinpointing suitable new opportunities going forward.

Trading in hospitality, events and licensed venues is a specialism of several of our senior Scottish executives, with our Edinburgh-based Director, Alastair Clarke equipped with over forty years of experience in building, buying and selling food-service companies. Having run restaurants, coffee shops, delis and even tried his own hand in the kitchen as a Masterchef contestant, he knows what it takes to get businesses ‘fit for market’ to optimise their sales potential. Utilising his broad range of industry contacts across the capital and the Lothians to connect you with the right quality of buyers and sellers.

Similarly, Geoff Farr, situated in Aberdeen but also covering Inverness and the Northern counties, is a seasoned brokering expert offering a wealth of experience across numerous industries. With a twenty-five-year career spanning from the local oil and gas industry to running boutique hotels and sprawling golf complexes across the country, he brings an unrivalled awareness of the regional economy and the Scottish tourism sector. Following his own successful business sales in recent years, Geoff can provide you with accurate valuations, respected advice and the perfect exit strategy to secure a satisfactory deal.

Leading operations at our fast-growing head office, is Scott Toward, our National Sales Director. A born-and-bred Glaswegian whose combination of local business knowledge and unique strategic understanding has seen him establish himself as a key figure in the business brokerage industry over the past decade, helping countless clients to realise their ambitions. Having facilitated mergers, acquisitions, expansions and of course business sales for all scopes and sizes of organisations across the licensed and leisure sector, Scott is the ultimate professional to safely oversee operations and get your transaction over the line.

Contact Scott, Alastair or Geoff and they will provide you with a free company valuation, complete discretion and expert advice so you can make an informed decision.
