Advise on capital raising options
When you have determined why you need finance, you should set out a clear repayment plan. There are several strategies available such as: extending an overdraft facility, long term/short term loans, purchasing capital equipment using leasing, hire or finance purchase terms, sale and leaseback of buildings or even a share issue. Always remember, up-to-date financials will be imperative to obtaining funding. No reputable lender will make funds available unless they understand how the business has performed and the direction of future travel.
Advise on tax efficient restructuring of your business
You may be thinking of buying a competitor, setting up a new business/shop/trade, splitting out your trades in anticipation of a future sale, closing a part of your business or selling one or more business lines.
Advise on tax efficient exit planning
Selling shares is the simplest way to release equity. However, there are several other options available depending on your personal circumstances (for example you may wish to sell your trade but personally retain assets such as commercial buildings to generate a future income stream)
