Valuing an opticians practice

Valuing an ophthalmic company or opticians practice is notoriously complicated, and the method you use to value it will depend on your individual circumstances. For example, you could value your practice on an assets basis, meaning the value of the property, the debts of the company, and any other valuable assets are all taken into account.

Alternatively, you could value your practice on the basis of the profits generated by the company or the profits that are expected to be generated.

Financing for opticians practices

When you instruct our corporate healthcare solicitors, you will obtain the benefit of Mel’s status as a Bank Panel solicitor for many leading healthcare lenders.

We can advise you on all types of optical finance products, including business loans, personal loans, consolidation loans, hire purchase agreements, equipment finance, tax funding, and shopfitting finance.

What our clients say about Mel and his team

“I used Mel and his team to deal with the purchase of my second opticians practice. They dealt with the bank refinance of my existing practice simultaneously with the acquisition of my new practice, with a successful completion. I would happily recommend Mel and his team to other opticians seeking to buy or sell their practices”.
