We are delighted to have advised EasyBuild on their sale to Access UK.

Founded in 1999, EasyBuild is an end-to-end construction financial and project accounting solution, with a suite of software that addresses all the operational needs of a modern construction business. 

The team has built an award-winning ERP software and were motivated to find the right investor to ensure their continued growth. 

Our team were engaged to provide corporate finance sell-side advice to the company shareholders, as well as a range of tax advisory services covering both company and personal tax for the client. We ran a confidential and competitive process with a focussed selection of strategic acquirers that would be deemed the best fit for the business going forward.  

This utilised our relationships with the key players within the industry and enabled us to open up detailed conversations with strongly interested parties. 

Our extensive sector expertise across the construction and software sectors, and experience of success on deals of this nature, meant we were able to position the business for value, and ensure the distinctive solution that EasyBuild provides was reflected in offers received. 

By providing hands on support through a tight and intensive diligence process was pivotal for management and shareholders throughout, whilst continuing to manage the relationship with the buyer to ensure a successful outcome. 


Going through any acquisition process for a business whether you are buying or selling is an incredible busy period, especially when you need to keep business as usual activities going. The first class support from the Grant Thornton team ensured the end result was a success, working with experts in their field and true professionals.
