Exit Strategies, helping you plan ahead for your business.
Whether you’re ready to move onto your next start-up or want to retire, considering your exit strategy and determining how to value a business are areas where advice can be invaluable.
Do you want to walk away from your business completely, or retain an interest? Do you want to stay on as a consultant or even as an employee on the payroll?
There are a range of business exit strategies available, and we’ll help you decide which one is for you. You might consider a trade sale, a management buy-out or buy-in, family succession, flotation or even liquidation.
Each possibility comes with its own merits and challenges. The team at Milestone Financial Planning can help you weigh up the alternatives, get an accurate business valuation and plan well ahead, so when it’s time to move on you can do so with confidence.

What exactly is an exit strategy?
To put it simply, a business exit strategy is a plan that a business owner should have in place should they want or need to sell their business for whatever reason. Most small business owners fear that the business will not survive without them, we will help you make the transition to hand over the reins of the company so you can step away with peace of mind.
Even if you are not planning on selling your business right away, it is always wise to have exit strategies in place in case you consider it in the future. This will ensure that if the business is successful, you can maximise your income and extract profits tax efficiently before you leave, and, if the business is making a loss, you can limit your individual loses.
