Avoiding the emergency exit: It’s never too early to plan your exit strategy

01st June, 2021

When you sit down in a crowded room, knowing you have multiple exits is not only comforting, it’s a matter of security. The same applies to owning or running a business – establishing a plan for eventually leaving or selling the business is wise and lends a sense of safety to what could otherwise be a risky proposition.

Niall Glynn, partner in Deloitte Private Clients, has extensive experience in tax issues which can arise during the sale of a business and potential structuring alternatives. In the webinar, Niall shared with Davy guests how to get ‘exit ready’ and prepare you and your business for sale. 

“The single most important takeaway is to recognise what your preferences are for you and your family around business exit, and the value it may generate. Prepare a default plan for unforeseen events. It is never too late to consider, relative to your current structure, what alternatives may arise to optimise your position - albeit the earlier you have a plan, potentially the more options are available to you.”

Watch the webinar recording for valuable additional insights and considerations for business owners.
