With proper exit planning, a business owner can take the necessary steps in advance to maximize after-tax value when the day of exit ultimately arrives, whether it be for retirement, sale or unfortunate event.

The Potomac Company works with a team of expert advisors to guide you through planning an exit well in advance of an ownership change. There are a number of advisors who can help you work through the Exit Planning process. Some of them you may already retain in the day-to-day operations of your company. For example, your accountant, financial planner and business attorney may have sufficient experience to be a valuable part of your Advisory Team. If necessary, our financial advisors can provide you with referrals for these experts.
