“My business is service related, and I am worried when it comes to retiring there won’t be an option to sell the business or transition it to new owners. How can I ensure I am financially ready for retirement independent of my business entity?”
- Dan, age 48
- Business with great cash flow but unknown value
Dan has concerns that he won’t have options to extract value out of his business when he retires. He wonders if he is doing the right things to become financially independent from his business and retire when and how he wants to.
Payne Wealth Partners would recommend preparation of a written wealth plan that helps Dan maximize the performance of his business. This will allow him to accumulate assets outside of his business value that he can use to fund his retirement. His exit plan would address:
- Balance sheet risk management considering his business entity
- Developing more tax-efficient savings strategies
- Cash flow analysis and prioritizing the use of free cash flow
- Coordinating with Dan’s CPA on income tax minimization
With this plan Dan will be able to make more informed decisions with the comfort of knowing he doesn’t have to rely on a sale of the business to live the life he looks forward to in retirement.Disclaimer – These case studies are for illustrative purposes only.
