In this case study, we explore how our Specialised Tax Advisory solutions helped a construction company (referred to as S-1843) and its shareholders navigate the complexities of valuation and taxation. Our primary objectives were to facilitate a fair sales price agreement, educate the departing shareholder on personal tax implications, and ensure all parties were aware of the tax implications for the business. By addressing these goals, we aimed to provide the shareholders with peace of mind and ensure a smooth transition.

Client Goals:

  1. Use tax advice to complete valuation on 2 individual entities: S-1843's shareholders were seeking expert guidance to accurately value two distinct entities within the business. Determining the true worth of these entities would enable the shareholders to negotiate a fair and equitable sales price.
  2. Departing shareholder - Awareness of tax implications: As one of the shareholders planned to exit the company, they were concerned about potential tax implications associated with the sale. They wanted to gain a comprehensive understanding of the personal tax obligations and potential liabilities resulting from the transaction.
  3. Awareness of implications towards the business: The remaining shareholders were aware of the potential implications the transaction might have on the overall business. They sought advice on the best course of action to minimise any adverse tax consequences and ensure the long-term financial health of the company.

Results obtained:

  1. Shareholders were able to agree on a sales price that benefits both parties: Through our comprehensive valuation analysis, we were able to provide a clear picture of the value of the two entities within S-1843. This information empowered the shareholders to engage in meaningful negotiations and reach an agreement on a sales price that satisfied both the departing shareholder and the remaining shareholders. The resulting price reflected the fair market value of the entities, ensuring a mutually beneficial outcome.
  2. Enabled exiting shareholder to retire with knowledge and peace of mind: We conducted a detailed assessment of the departing shareholder's personal tax implications arising from the sale of their shares. Our team explained the tax obligations associated with the transaction, including any capital gains tax or other relevant tax liabilities. By providing clear guidance and ensuring full transparency, we enabled the exiting shareholder to retire with confidence, knowing that all tax matters were appropriately addressed and accounted for.
  3. No unexpected surprises or bills for the departing shareholder: By considering all relevant tax implications in advance, we were able to ensure there were no unforeseen tax surprises or unexpected bills for the departing shareholder. Our comprehensive approach covered all aspects of the transaction, including potential taxes on the sale proceeds, minimising the risk of unexpected financial burdens. This allowed the exiting shareholder to make a smooth transition into retirement, without any lingering financial concerns.
  4. Obtained Funding for a Smooth Buyout Process: Recognising the financial implications of the buyout and the need for adequate funding, we worked closely with S-1843 to secure the necessary financial resources. Our team at Saint Finance explored various funding options, such as business loans, lines of credit, or equity financing. By leveraging our network and expertise in financial planning, we successfully facilitated the acquisition of the required funds.


By providing expert tax advice and guidance, we helped S-1843's shareholders achieve their goals in a complex business transaction. Our valuation analysis ensured a fair sales price agreement, while our personalised tax advice helped the exiting shareholder navigate their personal tax obligations. Additionally, our expertise in assessing the implications towards the business safeguarded the company's long-term financial well-being. As a result, all parties involved were able to move forward confidently, knowing that the transaction was executed with diligence and expertise, leaving no unexpected surprises or tax burdens.
