Having a great idea won’t guarantee success; you need to put the right structure in place so that your great idea can become a growing business. The management team is key to the success of any business, but attracting and retaining great staff is a challenge in a competitive job market. Giving staff a share in the success of your business through Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) can motivate them to drive the business forward.

So your hard work is paying off and your business is growing, that’s great news! But are you thinking about your exit? Most business owners are too busy concentrating on running their business to think about planning their exit. Not having a suitable successor in the business, having no family members to hand down to, or the business relying too much on you, are all common reasons for not planning an exit. It takes careful planning to make sure you get a fair return for the significant time and money you have invested in your business.

The sad reality is that most business owners leave it to chance, and when the time comes, the rewards are poor. Talk to us about exit planning, we can help you put a practical, workable strategy in place that maximises the return on your investment and minimises your tax liability. Call us on +44(0)330 024 3200 ​to find out more.
