Actions and Detail Panel
Buying, Selling, or Transitioning your Business Full Day Event
Thu, 20 October 2016, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
We have four sessions covering a full day dealing with what are the ins and outs when buying, selling or transitioning a business. We will cover legal, tax, insurance and pension strategies followed by a panel discussion to discuss the practical tactics in transitioning your business.
Join us for 1, 2, 3 or all 4 sessions! You have the power to pick and choose which seminars/webinars you would like to take part in, or join us for the full day event.
Who Should Attend?
This day is a must for all professionals and business owners. I’ve read that there’s an astounding 40% of family businesses that will go through some form of ownership transfer in the next five years.
Is there a particular business owner that should attend? No. Why? If you are a professional with your own practice, maybe you want to sell one day? Maybe you need to prepare your own firm to ensure its purified for capital gains exemption purposes or ready to be sold or passed on to the next generation of family or employees. The same holds true for business owners looking at exiting the business.
