SVA’s Kollauf Authors Article on Succession Planning

SVA Certified Public Accountants professional Richard Kollauf, CPA, CFP®, AEP®, JD has authored an article for In Business Magazine titled “Post-Pandemic Exit Planning: Are You Ready?”.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, business owners around the globe paused their exit planning. While the process for a successful transition coming out of a pandemic still encompasses the standard steps, there are some nuances to keep in mind.

  • Exiting post-pandemic requires preparation. Developing goals and objectives will help determine when, how, and to whom the business will transition to.
  • Valuations matter so get an appraisal of the business. A valuation is the basis for the sales price and it is important to create a strategy to bridge the gap between financial goals and business value if necessary.
  • Strategize the transaction and gather a team of advisors with the skill sets necessary to help navigate a successful transaction.
