Succession and Exit

The anatomy of a successful business succession & exit – January 2014

By , February 18, 2015

How do you sell a business for maximum value? First you need to learn how to make a business successful. Whilst many owners are very good in their respective industry, most are not proficient at management and certainly not skilled at maximising the value of their business.  Succession planning provides a road map and guide to the future for a business. It is a process not an event, and needs to be carefully considered and implemented.

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.
