Tax before selling your business
How do you know your tax position before selling your business? Selling a business comes with many moving parts and in addition, many unknown questions. For example, what’s my business worth? How do I know my tax position before I sell my business? How much tax will I have to pay? Can I negotiate the taxes with the buyer of my business?
There are obviously many more questions but part of your goal when selling your business is to get the best price and keep as much as you can. In order to know this information, the best solution is to obtain a Tax Structuring Report. In addition and more importantly, the information in the Tax Structuring Report will enable you to negotiate with a buyer from a position of strength and not weakness. That is, you can proactively manage reasonable expectations with the buyer as opposed to having the deal crash because you were able to agree on the price and terms but not the tax consequences.
