Thinking of selling up? What’s your exit strategy?

The ultimate aim of any serious business person is to build a business that has value, so that it can be sold or transferred, allowing the owner to exit gracefully and profitably. And it’s never too early to start planning for that sale.

There are, however, many issues to consider, and they include the following:

• When do you want to exit?

• Can the business be sold to your employees?

• Is a trade sale more likely?

• How much is the business really worth?

• What needs to be done in advance to enhance the value of the business for sale?

• How long will the sale process take?

• Do you want or need to stay on with the business after sale or transfer?

• What are the tax consequences of selling up?

If you are thinking of selling your business, then to maximise your profit, you’re going to need solid and practical specialist advice from both a commercial solicitor and an accountant with plenty of experience in this area.
