Webinar on Selling your business – How to maximise value and avoid pitfalls
Whitney Moore was delighted to have co-hosted a webinar with Crowe on Thursday 10 February 2022 entitled Selling your Business: How to maximise value and avoid pitfalls.
The event was attended by over 100 invited guests and aimed at business leaders and their advisors, providing them with insights into the key legal and tax issues to consider when implementing a successful exit strategy. The presentations and a recording of the webinar are available in this helpful video.
Cormac Doyle covered some of the key tax issues to consider as part of planning your business exit. This included considerations on some key tax reliefs for the shareholders: entrepreneur relief, retirement relief, the use of holding companies, and methods of profit extraction. He also discussed ways to re-structure the business itself as part of pre-sale planning, including ways to consider removing non-trade assets and increasing the attractiveness of the business for a purchaser.
Brendan spoke about the legal preparation for the sale of a business. He focused on the preparatory steps recommended in order to streamline the legal due diligence procedure and the negotiation of the share purchase agreement with a view maximising the purchase price.
