The timing and the way you retire can affect the value both yourself and any other shareholders might receive from the business. If you’re selling the business on, you’ll need to decide how you want to receive payment for it. Sometimes, for example, you will simply receive a one-off cash lump sum for the sale. However, you may prefer staged payments or, perhaps, defer payments for a while if you don’t wish to take advantage of the sale immediately. You might also be considering maintaining some kind of involvement in the business in a greatly reduced capacity and the way you exit can sometimes affect your tax liabilities. Whatever you decide to do, you should seek professional advice about how best to exit the business when you retire as doing it correctly and appropriately will ensure both yours and the business’ future success unless you’re planning to wind it up when you retire.
