The benefits of an Exit Plan

A structured Exit Plan can identify and minimise the risks, for you and for your business, whilst also realising the opportunities to maximise the value of your business.

With an Exit Plan implemented over a number of years, combined with the benefit of advice and planning by an extensive group of experts, you can:

  • Exit your business on your timeline, whilst also having a plan in place in the event of something unforeseen;
  • Ensure financial security for you and your family;
  • Gracefully move into retirement;
  • Determine who will succeed you in running/owning your business;
  • Minimise financial risks in the lead up to and upon your exit;
  • Minimise tax payable as a result of your business exit;
  • Ensure the survival and future growth of your business;
  • Ensure stakeholders, including employees and family, are considered in your exit strategy;
  • Minimise the stress and worry for all concerned; and
  • Maximise financial rewards upon your exit.

A Strategic Exit Report

The exit journey is driven by our Certified Exit Planner who develops the initial Exit and/or Succession Report for you. A fundamental part of this process is to understand your core goals and objectives and conduct an analytical review of the your mindset and financial position.

A Strategic Exit Report provides:

  1. An understanding of your goals and objectives;
  2. A detailed analysis of the your situation including all relevant stakeholders in the exit journey. A comprehensive review of your business is also conducted in order to prepare a specific purpose valuation;
  3. A recommendation in relation to the optimal exit strategy for you, the business owner; and
  4. Key issues relevant to the recommended exit strategy including a detailed action plan of matters to be addressed during the implementation phase.
