Unlike pretty much all other business brokers, Turner Butler does not charge any upfront fees. Nor do we charge termination, withdrawal or cancellation fees. We pay for all the advertising and marketing of our clients’ businesses out of our own pocket and we spend very substantial sums each year on advertising and marketing. These marketing efforts produce around 1,000 new buyer enquiries each month.

We do not employ high pressure sales techniques, we send out our terms of business before any meeting to give our vendors time to read them. Once they sign our terms our vendors have a cooling off period of 14 days should they wish to change their minds. They can terminate our engagement at any time with due notice and without penalty.

Our terms are clear, sole selling rights agreements:  if the assets, shares or control of the business are transferred to anyone during our engagement or after the end of our engagement to anyone who became aware that the business was for sale by any means prior to the end of our engagement then a fee is due. For this reason we strongly recommend to all our clients that all approaches from prospective buyers should be handled by us so that we can control the process and get the best possible deal for our clients.
