Craig West published Enjoy It in late 2014, the book takes the reader through the 21 step process used to enable business owners to exit successfully and extract maximum value for their business.  33% of business owners will rely solely on the proceeds from the sale of their business to fund their retirement, yet when it comes to selling a business 75% of owners admitted their business is not sale ready. It’s important to start planning your succession early if you want to maximise and extract the value held within your business.

Managing Director | Succession Plus

Craig West is a strategic accountant who has over 20 years’ experience advising business owners. His background as a CPA in public practice, provided invaluable experience in the key issues of concern to business owners. Following 6 years of study to gain two masters degrees, Craig focused on Capital Gains Tax (CGT) for business sales advising on strategic management of tax issues. This experience formed a very strong view that business owners (and often their advisers) were unprepared and unaware of the steps required to prepare a business for exit.

Craig now acts as a strategic mentor for mid-market business owners and has written four critically acclaimed books on employee incentives, succession planning, asset protection and exit strategies. Craig has conducted numerous seminars and keynote presentations throughout Australia & internationally, including adviser education programs for the Institute of Chartered Accountants and CPA Australia.
