Exit Route Planning
One of the most important business decisions you will make is how you actually exit the business you have built up. It is potentially your biggest asset and may be your ‘pension asset’. Making sure you get the maximum value out of the business you have established is therefore essential.
Businesses that carry out proper exit route planning of their business invariably achieve a higher valuation and eventual sale price on the disposal of that company. A good exit route is often in the planning stages 3 – 5 years in advance of selling. It avoids you throwing away the equivalent of a terminal bonus on your pension pot.
Correct exit route planning includes tax planning to minimise liabilities to the tax man. A poorly structured deal can result in paying a vastly higher percentage of tax and even having to pay the tax before you have received the funds.
