Acquisition Strategies

The first step in buying an accounting or CPA firm is to determine an acquisition strategy based on your specific goals and objectives. Each strategy has specific marketing, valuation, negotiation, pricing, transaction and legal requirements for structuring the transaction.  Below are the most commonly utilized strategies:

Common Acquisition Strategies

  • 100% Acquisition – Buying 100% of the equity with the existing partners staying on anywhere from 1 -3 years
  • 50/50 Acquisition – Purchasing 50% of the equity now and the other 50% when the partner(s) retire in 3 – 7 years
  • Partner Buy-Out – Buying out one, or more of the retiring partners’ interests (less than 100%) while the other partners merge into the firm in exchange for equity
  • Merger – Two firms joining resources, not necessarily exchanging any cash, and redistributing equity for long-term growth, market share and exit strategy


Strategic Alliance CPA Consultants has long-term relationships with the leading banks in the country that specialize in financing CPA and accounting firm sales. Often times, we are able to secure 100% financing for the buyer with terms as long to 7 to 10 years. Our experience with these specialized transactions results in high quality loan packages that generate easy and timely approvals. Upon approval, we are the catalyst that coordinates the closing with all of the parties involved by creating all of the legal, financial and administration information and documentation required.

The following is a partial list of the services we perform in the loan packaging process:

  • Combining the financial statements of the two accounting practices deducting the cost savings from realizing the economies of scale
  • Based on the combined financial statements at the time of the acquisition, preparing monthly cash flow projections for the following twelve months
  • Preparing a Schedule of Assets and Liabilities itemizing the collateral available for use in obtaining financing
  • Preparing combined cash flow projections to determine the viability of covering the debt service
