Business Transition Planning
The continuation of your business is vital to the wellbeing of our community. In order to maximize the sale price of your business and minimize undue tax consequences, you should allow at least 3-5 years to plan the best exit strategy for you. When the time is right we will be there to discuss possible strategies and connect you to a business transition specialist.
Business Plan Development
A solid business plan is an essential tool for every business regardless of its life stage. There are a number of web based resources you might find helpful in completing or updating your business plan. If you need assistance in finalizing your business plan, we can connect you to one of our partners specializing in business plan preparation.
