Planning for Exit

Back to Tax

Our accountants and tax advisers can help if you are planning to exit your business.

While our primary aim is always to help our clients grow their businesses, there will come a time when you feel it’s time to either hand your business over to the next generation or sell it to finance your future.

If you have reached that stage and are ready to start planning your exit from your company or partnership, we can help. Even if there is not a plan to do so you should think about what the tax position of that would be just in case.

We’ll analyse every aspect of your business and map that against your preferred outcomes to find the exit plan that will minimise your tax liabilities, maximise your personal financial gains (and minimise your Capital Gains Tax liabilities) and make the transition to the new management or new owner as smooth as possible.

During the planning stage we will also look in detail at the other aspects you may not have considered, for example:

  • Business Asset Disposal Relief (formerly known as Entrepreneurs’ relief)
  • Business property relief
  • Substantial shareholders relief

But our support isn’t just limited to the tax side. We’ll also employ all of our wider commercial experience so you pick the best time to sell, achieve the best price and enjoy our full support throughout the process.

If you are planning to exit your business and would like to discuss how we could help you perfect your plan, please email us at
