Business owners often spend so much time pouring their blood, sweat and tears into managing their company that they forget to plan for the future.

When is the last time you asked yourself, “What is my plan for successfully exiting this business?” Or, “What will happen to my business once I’m gone?”

A construction contractor might choose to do one of several things as they exit the company. They could outright sell it to someone else, transition it to key employees, transfer it to family members or shut it down. There is no “one right way” to exit a business. It’s a personal decision for the business owner that should take into account multiple financial, legal, tax and personal issues.

Like many things in life, the more you plan your exit from your business, the more you’ll succeed. Taking steps now to plan your exit will undoubtedly help ensure a smooth transition later.

  • Looking ahead to retirement – what are your options?
  • Alternatives to outright selling your business
  • How to get paid out as you transition out of your business
  • Taking care of your employees – what’s next for them as you exit the business?
