Every business in the country has an accountant and those accountants are on our database. The vast majority of those that could have potential clients either way are on direct email with us. Should you have a client that wishes to buy or sell you simply tell us with a brief description of the requirement. We will then code the business and yourself and send it out to other appropriate accountancy practices either by size of practice, region or the entire database. Any replies received would then be passed direct to you. This will be the name and telephone number of another accountant in the vast majority of cases.
This simple and effective facility is available to your practice today. For further information please email and you can either look at a subscription membership, which allows you to place as many adverts as you wish or a single advert. All adverts are reviewed every two weeks to examine any changes that are necessary to improve any response level or to leave it as it is if sufficient interest has been received.
