FAQs - Exit
Frequently asked questions about selling your company
How much does it cost to sell my company with SeedLegals?You'll pay a non-refundable deposit of £2,990 + VAT and when the sale is complete, £7,000 + VAT plus 0.1% of the value of the company sale.
We charge the company but you can ask the buyer to pay our fees - you'll need to settle this outside of your agreements on SeedLegals.
You must also have an active annual membership with SeedLegals: Plus or Standard:
- Plus costs £999 + VAT per year
- Standard costs £499 + VAT per year
Can SeedLegals find a buyer for my company?No, we can't find a buyer for your company. You can use the SeedLegals Exit service to create, sign and store all the legal documents for your sale - you find the buyer, we'll be ready to help with the paperwork.
If you'd like some links to online startup acquisition marketplaces, hit the chat button (bottom right of the screen) to ask us. Good places to start are Foundy, Acquire and Flippa.
Is negotiation and legal advice included?No, legal advice and support in negotiations is not included in the price for our Exit service.
Unlimited help is included - our friendly experts can help you create the documents you need, explain deal terms and guide you on what terms are standard and what to push back on.
Can SeedLegals value my company for sale? How do I calculate the exit valuation for my company?Just like with a funding round, a fair valuation for your business balances both tangible factors (profits, turnover, etc) and intangible factors (your brand’s reputation, the current economic climate and so on).
To determine your company valuation when you're preparing to sell, we recommend you speak to your accountant in the first instance. It can also be helpful to get an external perspective on your business by engaging an independent, qualified business appraiser. You’ll then be able to confidently defend the figure in your negotiations with potential buyers.
What happens if the sale of my company falls through?We hope that doesn't happen!
If you've already paid the deposit for our Exit service, this is non-refundable. You would not have to pay the balance.
I have a US / international buyer - can I still use SeedLegals Exit?Yes - but your buyer will need to accept that the Share Purchase Agreement they will sign is governed by UK law.
Is SeedLegals Exit all I need to sell my company? Do I need anyone else?It depends on the complexity of your sale. Especially for higher value deals, we recommend you seek independent financial and tax advice from qualified specialists.
