Hutchings Consultants

We operate throughout the UK and with many years experience in the pharmacy market we have built our business based on achieving outstanding results for our clients.

Unlike most other agents we only deal with pharmacies which make us true specialists in the pharmacy market.

Selling your pharmacy for all it’s worth is the only book in the UK on this subject. It gives a unique insight into the sales process and its many pitfalls. Anne Hutchings, the UK’s leading authority on pharmacy sales provides an inside view of how a pharmacy business should be valued, how buyers are found and how a sale price should be agreed.

Selling a pharmacy

If you are considering the sale of your pharmacy please contact us, we are happy to give you a free valuation with no obligation.  Any information which you give us will be treated in strict confidence.

When you are ready to sell we have a database of over 3,000 buyers ranging from first time buyers to the multiples and with our expertise we can select the best buyers for your pharmacy.  We can also help you:

  • Negotiate the best possible price
  • Negotiate the best terms and conditions of the sale
  • Reduce your tax liabilities arising on the sale
  • Introduce specialist solicitors to ensure that your sale progresses quickly and smoothy

We operate on a no sale no fee basis for pharmacy sales.

Hutchings Accountants

Hutchings Accountants are providing full support for all clients who are not using MTD compliant software to prepare their VAT returns, whether they are currently doing them on paper, using spreadsheets or using legacy software that is not MTD compliant.

Depending on your requirements, we can help by assisting with the registration process, manually filing the returns for you each month where you are using the paper method, providing you with excel bridging software if you are using spreadsheets, or by setting you up on MTD compliant cloud bookkeeping software.

We mainly use Xero software but can comfortably use other systems.

Full training and support is provided for those who want to do it themselves, and we also offer a full bookkeeping service.

The costs will depend on the level of support required but would generally start from £150 per return period. Call us today to discuss further and for your FREE consultation!
