    Expert advice for clients looking to sell a business

    There comes a time when for any number of reasons, it’s time to sell your business. There’s a lot at stake and the sooner we start working with you, the sooner we can assist you in maximising the value of your business and reducing the amount of tax you pay on your gains.

    Government policy has changed recently when it comes to the amount of capital gains tax payable when you sell a business.  RJP’s tax planning focus is on ensuring you receive Business Asset Disposal Relief (the new name for Entrepreneurs’ Relief) so that your capital gains tax liability is capped at 10% on all consideration received for gains of up to £1m.

    Plan ahead to maximise tax relief

    RJP very much specialises in advising clients about selling their businesses and have helped hundreds of business owners to exit their companies successfully.

    Where possible we encourage our clients to plan two to three years ahead for a sale because the current eligibility criteria mean that it is necessary to have held the relevant shares for at least 2 years in order to qualify for this tax relief, making early action imperative.

    Whether you’re planning to sell soon or are planning ahead, talk to us to see how we can help limit your liability.


    60 Day Deadline for CGT Returns and Tax Payments
