Business Succession

Transferring Businesses Efficiently and Effectively

Transferring a business to another party can be a daunting and cumbersome task. How much is my business worth? What are the tax ramifications of a sale? What is my liability? Can I afford to sell this business? Is there a buyer for my business? What is my exit strategy? These are just a few of the questions that begin the discussion. Chalk Cullum & Associates can help you answer these questions. Once these questions are answered, certain strategies must be implemented to protect the seller throughout the business succession process.
