DSAP Case Study Byrnes Dental Lab and Corus 2023

Client Profile

The Byrnes Dental Laboratory Ltd.

Byrnes Dental Lab is a cutting edge, digital dental lab that is revolutionising the way the industry works. Their unique vision, approach and ethos ensures their work and services are the very highest standard. Using the latest technologies in the world of digital dentistry, Byrnes Dental Lab has the ability to work with clients around the globe.

Innovation and a passion for high-tech state-of-the-art manufacturing have placed husband-and-wife partnership Ashley and Alison Byrne along with their impressive team as leaders across the UK and Europe in world-class dental technology.

Incorporated in 2006 and family-run ever since, Byrnes Dental Lab became a DSA Prospect client in 2014. Since then we’ve supported the business through a period of notable growth and strategic restructure as they’ve continued to prove themselves as leaders in the digital dental marketplace.

How DSA Prospect supported this deal:

Hands-on transaction support

Effective deal structuring advisory

Financial and taxation due diligence

Legal/statutory document review and commentary

Specialist taxation advice and assistance with tax efficient exit

Ongoing compliance and advisory support under new ownership 

We have worked with DSA Prospect for over 10 years, and they have been pivotal in helping us grow from a small business to a market leading industry expert of fifty people.

When the opportunity arose for us to integrate with a European group, DSA was the first call we made. Gary, Nick, and their team not only helped with all aspects of accounting and finance, but connected us to their trusted network of legal, personal, and currency advisers – everyone we needed to get the deal done!

This incredible level of expertise and service made the transaction seamless and ensured they looked after all our interests. DSA Prospect went above and beyond for our company and will now continue to play a key role as we expand into the UK market.
