For many business owners, creating an exit strategy often goes hand in hand with retirement planning. Regardless of whether you want to sell to a third party, transfer to family members or structure a management buyout, for example, advance planning for an exit may specifically aid in increasing funds you will be able to withdraw for retirement. Advance planning of an exit strategy may also make management transitions easier and provide a wider range of options going forward. With succession planning, it is crucial to engage with qualified advisors (including tax, legal, financial, estate) to help develop a comprehensive plan which balances personal and business needs, while assuring both retirement and succession intentions and goals are effectively aligned.
Review your options as you look ahead for yourself and your business.
