  • As a requirement to obtaining confidential information from Accounting Practice Sales, Inc., Accounting Practice Sales II, Inc. and any of the associated independent brokers or franchisees (collectively “APS”) regarding a practice or practices that are seeking buyers (“Practice”), the undersigned Prospective Buyer acknowledges and agrees as follows:
  1. Information is being furnished by APS and by a practice owner or owners represented by APS ("Owner") solely in connection with Prospective Buyer’s consideration of the acquisition of a Practice (the “Proposed Transaction”). Such information shall be treated as “secret” or “confidential” and no portion of it shall be disclosed to others, except to those of Prospective Buyer’s employees and agents whose knowledge of the information is required for Prospective Buyer to evaluate the Proposed Transaction and who assume the same obligations under this Agreement. Prospective Buyer hereby assumes full responsibility for the compliance of such employees or agents to the terms of this Agreement. "Information" means all oral or written data, including any form of information in computer-readable format, as well as written reports, forms or any other hardcopy obtained from APS or the Owner, including the name, the address, the knowledge that the Practice may be considering a sale or funding, or even the fact that information has been provided. Confidential information does not include any information that is, or becomes, readily available to the public.
  2. Prospective Buyer will not interfere with any business of a Practice through the use of any information or knowledge acquired under this Agreement nor use any such information for its own account. Should Prospective Buyer decide not to pursue the Proposed Transaction, Prospective Buyer must promptly advise APS of the fact and deliver to APS all confidential information furnished to Prospective Buyer without keeping copies, summaries, analyses or extracts thereof.
  3. No representations or warranties are being made by APS as to the completeness or accuracy of any information provided to Prospective Buyer and any and all representations and warranties shall be made solely by an Owner in a signed acquisition or purchase agreement and then be subject to the provisions thereof. Should any representations of the Owner be untrue, Prospective Buyer agrees to look solely to the Owner for relief and shall release, hold harmless, indemnify, and defend APS from any such claims.
  4. APS does not provide legal representation and Prospective Buyer must engage its own attorney in any Proposed Transaction. Prospective Buyer has responsibility to perform at its own expense a due diligence investigation of the Practice prior to any type of acquisition.
  5. A broker or franchisee associated with APS is representing the Owner with regard to a Proposed Transaction and the broker or franchisee is to receive at closing the fees specified in a consulting or listing agreement signed by the Owner. All contact and negotiations with an Owner will be carried out only through approval of APS and Prospective Buyer will not enter into any arrangements with an Owner that would circumvent the fees due to the broker or franchisee.
  6. The Practice and its Owner are also parties and beneficiaries whose rights are being protected and they may enforce the terms of this Agreement as if they were parties to the Agreement. The Practice and its Owner shall be entitled to pursue any remedy at law or in equity for any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement. Injunctive relief may be granted without the Practice or its Owner posting a bond. In the event any action, suit or legal proceeding is commenced to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable legal and attorney’s fees.
  7. To the best of its knowledge, Prospective Buyer has the knowledge, skill and experience to successfully own and operate an accounting or tax business. Prospective Buyer understands the economic risk of such ownership and that the risk can be considerable, even to the point of failure of the business.
  8. This Agreement encompasses the entire agreement of the parties. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party.
  9. By signing this Agreement electronically, Prospective Buyer agrees to be personally bound by the terms and conditions contained herein and further agrees that if Prospective Buyer is a business entity, the undersigned officer or agent has full authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of the business entity.

Client Testimonials

Thank You

“My daughter, who was the CPA, was experiencing severe health challenges and was no longer able to operate her practice.  We were in the middle of packing up and closing her office by month end when we contacted Sherif and APS.  I was in shock when they had five interested buyers in a matter of days.  Sherif and APS were able to help us structure a deal and close in less than two weeks.  Most of all, they showed compassion and true desire to help throughout. I’m  grateful for having found APS!”

Janie Hanson- Brea, CA

William S. CPA, Collierville, Tennessee
A Pleasure

“It Was a pleasure to work with APS.”

Genne L., CPA, Hinsdale, Massachsetts
Second Time Seller

“This is the second time I have used APS to sell a business and have been very happy with the results both times.”

Joy A. EA, Plano, Texas
Full price

Walter R. CMA, Calgary, Alberta
APS is the Best

“Ryan is very trust worthy.  APS is the best. Very professional.”

Joseph B. CPA, Dallas, Texas
Nice Job APS

“APS did a nice job of providing buyers.  Their assistance with this process was greatly appreciated.”

Dan O. CPA, Huntington Beach, California
A Fantastic Broker

Andrew B. CPA, York, Maine
A Very Good Experience

“Over all a very good experience with the professionals at APS. I am very satisfied with the process. Will use you again!.”

Andy P., CPA, Dallas, Texas
Recommendation for Job Well-Done

“I will recommend APS to my peers. Thanks.”

Salim G., CPA, Miramar, Florida
Can’t Go Wrong

“I would highly recommend Accounting Practice Sales, whether buying or selling a practice. I have learned by experience, these guys know what they are doing!”

William R., CPA, Huntington Beach, California
Selling Whole Practice, Not Just Clients

“Thanks again for your assistance in this process. I did enjoy the experience. I do NOT believe any CPA in Conroe has ever sold his/her practice. Usually, they sell “their clients.” I am glad I started communicating with you back two years ago.”

Maria Q., CPA, Conroe, Texas
Best Money Spent

“I am pleased with the way my sale turned out and am really glad I had APS list my practice. I know I got much better price and terms than I would have on my own and am happy to pay a commission-best money I could have spent. Thank you very much!”

Mark H., South Jordan, Utah
Recommendation to Sellers

“What a great group of professionals. They were virtually at my side with assistance at just the right moments to help the sale through to completion. I recommend them highly to any person who may be thinking of selling their practice.”

Don M., Soldotna, Alaska
Worth Every Penny

“I couldn’t have done it without APS. Excellent service! Professional and worth every penny of the commission.”

Lorrie M., Townsend, Montana
Retirement is Alright

“Retirement is going great, just shot an 81 here in Palm Springs so things are looking promising. We are off to Las Vegas next week and then to Phoenix for at least two months. Lots of hiking and sightseeing as well. This retirement thing is alright.”

Darcy W., CA, Calgary, Alberta
All Cash!

“Working with Wade and Gary made the sale of my practice much easier. They were able to bring me various buyers with good offers on my practice. I ended up selling for all cash and I was also able to sell the building with my practice. Wade worked with me through the entire process and I would recommend his services to any CPA wanting to sell their practice.”

Darwin M., CPA, Pearland, Texas
Would do it Again

“I would do it again-that speaks volumes. Thank you for your professionalism and experience.”

Ann V.. Newton, Massachusetts
Quick Sale in the Midwest

“Let’s see, you helped me find a buyer that offered me what I was asking within a week….How can you top that?”

Michele S., Clinton Township, Michigan
Lots of Qualified Buyers Out West

“Initially, I was overwhelmed by the number of qualified respondents within 2-3 days of listing with APS. After receiving and accepting one of the Full Price offers, it was less than 60 days to closing! There is no way I could have achieved the same results without the assistance of APS. Thank you!”

Douglas M., Salt Lake City, Utah
Perfect Buyer Found in Ohio

“Excellent experience… I was amazed at the response we got in a short time and found a perfect buyer.”

Richard J., North Lima, Ohio
Educated in Texas

“Besides giving me an education and handling details I had not anticipated Gary provided numerous qualified buyers, most of whom met my parameters. I can’t think of anything more he could have done.”

Richard B., CPA Houston, Texas
Happy Fort Meyers Seller

 “You answered all my questions, found multiple qualified buyers and everything was handled in a professional manner. Well done!”

Lora-Lynn C. Fort Meyers, Florida
California EAs get All-Cash

“We didn’t know where to find a buyer! A local firm made an offer but we really didn’t want to be tied to the practice through an earn out arrangement. The call from APS came just in time and, as a result, we were able to sell for all cash and retire care free.”

Dale and Mary F., EAs, Napa, California
Recommendations

“Thanks a lot for the work you have done. You did a great job in finding a buyer and I have already recommended you to two other firms in town who are thinking about selling.”

Douglas H., Livingston, Montana
Satisfied Oklahoma CPA

“Gary Holmes kept in contact with me for over four or five years waiting for me to decide to sell my business. I was concerned about the money, of course, but I wanted to sell to somebody that would provide service to my existing clients. We were able to overcome both of those concerns. I was very satisfied.”

Richard H., CPA, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Making the Financing Work

“Anything can happen when you initiate the sale of your business! I am sure glad APS was there to pick me up when I thought all was lost. SBA can really make you jump through hoops. With years of experience dealing with similar transactions, Roy Braatz had a trick up his sleeve for every obstacle SBA put in front of me. I would definately use him again!”

Tom C., CPA, Mill Valley, California
Small Practice

“I am sure this sale is one of the smaller transactions in your practice, but I just wanted to say thank you anyway. Without your assistance I probably would not have had the success that we have accomplished the past several months. Thank you for the service rendered.”

Donald Y., LPA, EA, Kalona, Iowa
CPA Buys a Practice in Miami

“It has now been one year since you helped me buy my practice. I just wanted to tell you that it has been a great year. My billings have doubled and that office has been a gem. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have met both of you.”

Francisco A., CPA, Miami, Florida
Quick Sale in Florida

“I faxed my information on Tuesday at 4:30 pm. The next day I had a call and an appointment with a buyer on Thursday morning. We closed and signed papers five days later.”

Richard H., Pohokee, Florida
Satisfied Buyer in Houston

“The purchase worked out very well for us, so well, in fact, that we are monitoring your e-mails for another practice that might fit in with us. We are continuing to grow the old-fashioned way but I know several ex-Anderson associates that can come help us.”

Guerry D., CPA, Houston, Texas
Philosophy Works for Us

“We chose Accounting Practice Sales because of your reputation for selling firms at high multiples, as well as for your philosophy that high quality firms should sell with cash deals. You came through on both counts – well done! These three areas of APS’s philosophy: fair pricing, cash terms and quick transition were key for us and I believe that they were also fair to the buyers. We have stayed in contact with the buyers and I believe they are quite satisfied with the outcome also. All in all, it’s hard to imagine a better outcome.”

Bill B., CPA, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Closed in Less Than 2 Weeks

“I thought it was overstated that she could possibly sell in a month.  She brought me a full price cash buyer and closed in less than 2 weeks from listing.”

Gabriel M., Abilene, Texas
APS Simple and Quick

“APS said it would probably take 3 months to close and they were right on. Using APS was a simple and quick way to get the job done without a great deal of involvement on my part.”

Martin M., CA,Calgary, Alberta
Sell With Professional Help

“The experience was very positive, and I felt confident at each step of the process. I can’t imagine selling without professional help.”

Betty F., Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Repeat Client

“This is the second time I’ve used APS-the first time was in 2004 to sell my practice and again at this time to purchase a new practice. Both experiences were handled professionally and I’m satisfied with the services provided.”

Lois V., Fremont, California
Likes Using APS

“I have purchased and sold with APS and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Len T., Zinonsville, Indiana
Perfect Match for Monterey EA

“Thank you so much for your help with the sale. You and Jake were always available for any questions either the buyer or I had and you made the process as painless as possible! You found the perfect buyer at the right price and the transition has been wonderful! She and I think alike – in another life we’d be perfect business partners!”

Diane S., EA, Monterey, California
Great Use of Energy for Oregon EA

Working with my APS broker allowed me to spend my energy on my clients rather than potential buyers.

Anna H., EA, Oregon City, Oregon
Practice Owner from Dallas moves to Italy

“I recommend Accounting Practice Sales to anyone selling their practice. Before we knew about APS, we tried to sell our business ourselves and weren’t successful. That actually turned out to be a good thing. In just a few days APS had three buyers waiting and we ended up getting about 35% more than we had been asking! My wife and I were comfortable turning our clients over to the new owners. Things couldn’t have gone better. Now we’re planning on moving to Italy to pursue a new dream.”

Eric M., CPA, Dallas, Texas
