Exiting Your Business

There comes a time when you need to exit your business and dependent on your own objectives and those you have for the business, as well as its complexity, all affects how much value you take and how long the process lasts. We help our clients meet their personal objectives, whether exiting with as much liquidity as possible or leaving significant value in the business so it can continue to trade and grow as part of an inheritance legacy.

Exit Strategy Planning

Leaving a business that you are an integral part of is difficult. Planning your exit in plenty of time offers you peace of mind and also allows you to make realistic plans about the sort of financial benefit you can expect to see when you do leave. Our bespoke tax mitigation and pension planning will help ensure that you get the greatest possible value when you do decide to leave your business.

Employee Ownership Trusts were introduced by the Government in 2014, and are a tax-efficient way to exist in certain circumstances.

Planning for Retirement *

Changing the dynamic of your asset portfolio with a view to retirement and cash extraction can be a challenge especially if your portfolio contains your business. We can help you re-structure your existing portfolio so that it reflects your longer term goals and allows you to plan your retirement effectively while minimising your personal tax liability and the cash drain on your business.
